Baby Boy

Hi, Connie here with you today.

I want to share a baby boy card that with these Memory Box - Alphabet tile letters you can personalize your card to include the babies name.  I thought it would be neat to make a quilted card with the tiles, so I used the Memory Box - Country stitches, to give it that quilted look.

Here are a couple pictures showing how I lined up for the stitching.

Next I die cut the tile letters, glued the bases down in the middle of the squares I made, inserted the letters back inside so I could add the inside pieces of the letters. Here I had already finished the "B" and and now doing the "A"  at the top of the picture you can see the little piece of the "A" that I will add, then take back out the A.  What is great about these letters is you can use both the negative and the positive of them.

Next I have a tip for you, if you don't happen to have a die that you need look at how you may take bits from other dies you have by cutting away the pond I was able to use these ducks from Die-namics Duck pond die. HERE you can find an assortment of all kinds of ducks in the store.

I also used the Impression Obsession- rabbit set and the Impression Obsession buttons dies to fill in the other quilt squares.

I ended up cutting down my card because I didn't like the left side having extra room, so my card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/8.

Here are the dies used in the card.
