Here's a sneak peek of my featured project using Birthday Bots...
Head on over to the Paper Crafter's Library blog for the full feature, plus a chance to win a Verve prize package!
********While I was making the card for this feature, I made another with the same set that I posted over on the Verve Blog the other day for the Little Things Diva Dare that ends tonight. Here's the replay for those who missed it over there.
When I was very young I had a patchwork pillow and quilt my great grandmother made me that was so dear to my heart. It was a rainbow of fun colors and patterns and my most favorite sections were made from a bright pink and green fabric. So when I sat down to make a card for a friend's little bundle who will be arriving this summer, I just couldn't resist throwing in some 1970's pinks & greens!
The baby bot from Birthday Bots is paper pieced onto a pre-made tag from JoAnn's. I layered two tags back to back so I could slip that star pin with the sentiment flag in between through a pop dot so there wouldn't be any sharp edges poking around. The stars on the green polka dot "blanket" are cut with the Starry Die and I added a bit of glossy glaze and glitter to them. A bit of seam binding and my favorite embossing folder finish things off.
