Baby Thank You Cards #2

Here's the second installment of my baby thank you cards. I hope you're not getting tired of Nursery Necessities yet. It's the only thing I've had out on my stamping table lately! Both cards are pretty self-explanatory so I won't go into a lot of detail on either.

This first card uses the Cuttlebug Thank You embossing folder. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I sponged the raised portions of the embossed image with Whisper White craft ink. The white squares down the left side of the card were punched out with the 1 3/8" square punch and matted with 1 1/2" So Saffron squares. The star and bottom of the sailboat are raised up on dimensionals.

For the second card, I ran the square embossing folder through my Big Shot 3 times and then stamped the chick inside each square. I started with the middle square and then just eyeballed the placement of the other 2. The thank you stamp is from the Enjoy Every Moment set.
