Baby Boy Congratulations Card using Doodle Pantry!!

Friends of our sent the cutest Baby Boy birth announcement-he was sitting up in a fishing creel basket with a pole and a crocheted fish.  So adorable!!  The perfect chance to use one of the digital bundles at Doodle Pantry called Baby Shoes for my congratulations card~I fancy cut the shoes out and used pop dots on them.  All the patterned papers come with the set.  I used a Kraft cardstock from The Paper Cut as a mat-the color was perfect! 

As accents, I used pastel blue dew drops and rayon seam binding.  This seam binding was originally in a dusty blue but I like to make it vintage looking sooo to do that, I cut a long length, place in a plastic bag, I spritz it with walnut ink, wad it up into a ball and seal up the bag. Later I take out the very kinked up "ribbon" and let it air dry, still in the loose pile.  You get a very variegated ribbon and it looks very vintage.  The inside shows another paper, one of the included sentiments and a cute pewter dragonfly brad.


  1. Adorable and stunning job. I would love to have seen the birth announcement. They'll love your congrats card.

  2. This is wonderful! Loving that vintage ribbon!

  3. Ahhh! Such a sweet card...lucky new parents to have a brand new baby AND your congratulations card! PS...thanks for the bag tip for the ribbon. So much neater than just using the craft mat and moving it around - so messy! LOL!

    1. Am so glad you liked it Ann! The bag is great--I can do several different colors of binding in different bags all at the same time and always have it on hand!
