Baby gift and card

I went to a six-hour crop Friday night and was able to get a few projects finished. A good friend just had a new grandbaby so I wanted to send a little gift to new baby Clara. It's a wooden initial C which I painted and covered with paper. The baby shoes are a sticker. I stamped pink baby feet on a little white tag and added letter beads to spell her name - like the hospital bracelets that used to be put around babies' wrists. (I guess now they just put a cheesy paper band on!) Then I just added some tiny flowers, buttons and bows.

Here's the card. I used a chipboard dress form from Crafty Secrets as a pattern and traced it on cardstock. The coordinating pinafore is scored just below the waist to open for a handwritten greeting. The "lace" edging is strips of white paper punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.
