Day 19: More wedding & welcome baby card

So, I got a couple more things off my list today!!

My friend Kim just a new baby boy yesterday!! Hoorayyyyyyyy. So, of course I had to make a little card for her little boy first... who is nameless at the moment.  I cannot wait to meet him but largely I can't wait for my little boy residing in my belly (currently busy cracking my ribs apart) to meet him.  They are gonna be besties! :) Here's how it turned out.. its a bit busy but it reminds me of how little boys get so dirty and stinky.

Materials used: SU crumb cake card stock, SU bakers twine, Mr Hueys (green and white), SU bitty banners framelits and stamp set, SU brights buttons, Stars brads (retired), SU naturals designer buttons, Stitches buttons (retired), chocolate chip ink, old olive cardstock and vanilla card stock.

And with that, I decided I would create the prototype for the wedding programs for Jen. Keep in mind that this is the prototype!!  She liked the table numbers and placecards from my previous wedding samples post so I continued with that theme.

Since I used retired paper in my samples, I wanted to show the real paper we'll be using - patterned paper from the Twitterpatted collection from Stampin' Up. Here's the sample for you to gage how its coming together.  The colors match perfectly, as well as the ribbons.  There are doily type patterns on the paper that ties into the table numbers (Click for post).
Oh gosh, its beautiful and elegant!! My daughter would say... "Oh. My. Gosh. Sooooo. Cute!!"
Here's what I came up with - showing the front and the back with 4 separate flaps of information. Please take note of a couple things though -  This white paper is just regular computer paper but we'll be using proper whisper white card stock, which will add to the elegance. Also, you will notice that the stamping isn't crisp on the right and this is because it was the only paper I had in the "basic grey" color and its textured (meaning it has little bumps) - it isn't the best to stamp on. Those two things will change on the real thing.
Materials Used (All current Stampin Up product): Everything Elenor Stamp set, Precious butterflies stamp set, Organza Whisper White ribbon, Basic Pearls, Basic Grey textured paper & versamark. 
The other thing I want to note is that the pearls are likely not necessary but I wanted to show the option. It could also be possible to not use the Mr & Mrs stamp at all.  If you really wanted everything to tie in perfectly you cold use the Hello Doily or Delicate Doily stamp set.
Here's the details on the measurements:
1. Grey cover - 8 1/2"x 5 1/2" scored at 1" and 7/8"
2. First layer (date) - 5" x 5"
3. Second layer (Ceremony) - 5" x 5 3/4"
4. Third layer (Wedding Party) - 5" x 6 1/2"
5. Forth layer (Acknowlegdgements) - 5" x 7 1/4"
Have a wonderful weekend!! Cheers!
