EtsyInspired #24

This is my first week participating in an EtsyInspired Challenge as a Design Team member and I am so excited! This week's featured Etsy shop is JennyBunny. She has lots of wonderful handmade jewelry. My card was inspired by these pretty earrings from her sold section. She actually titled them Sweet Pea and when I first saw them my mind was already screaming 'Baby Card.'


So here is what I came up with:
I thought this pocket card would be great for tucking a little gift card into...new parents can always use a gift card to Target or Babies R Us, right?! For the pocket I just took a 4x11 piece of cardstock, scored it, folded it in half, covered it with pp and then used eyelets on the edges to keep it closed.

The tag is from K&Company's Baby Boy Tag Pad and the sentiment is actually from a pack of Baby Vellum phrases that I got at Joann's. I just trimmed it to fit right into the journal lines on the tag. For the tag sentiment and the sweet pea circle (since it is also vellum) I used Glue Dots Vellum adhesive. This stuff is fabulous for vellum...does not show through at all! To finish it all off I used a piece of twill (that I recycled from a Pottery Barn kids package) and tied it through the tag into a big bow.

I can't wait to see what you all are inspired by in the JennyBunny shop. If you upload to SCS make sure to use the Keyword: EIC24 and be sure to link up your creations on Ashley's post for a chance to win this week's prize. Now, take some time to check out all of the other wonderful DT members creations, I have all their names/links to their blogs listed to the right, and then go do a little creating of your own! :)
