Gate Fold Cards with Crafting with Dragonflies

Our challenge this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies is to make a Gate Fold Card.
The base is a double-sided KaiserCraft paper, to include the message section on the back, but I glued the patchwork paper onto the front to match the inside. The adorable footprints are rubber stamps from Repeat Impressions. I used sticky embossing powder to cover them with blue flocking.
I've had this pre-made cloth bag forever. The image is from a Precious Memories-patterned paper. The buttons were cut/embossed using a Stampin' UP! Embosslit die; I added "thread" with a glittery blue pen.

DL ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #233: Baby
Moving along with the Times #77: For The Boys

I needed another thank-you card, so I made this horizontal gate-fold card:
The base is another double-sided KaiserCraft paper. For the inside, I heat-embossed a dress die-cut in blue, because this is a thank-you for a friend who gave me all her maternity clothes. I decorated the back too.

As you might have guessed, we're expecting a little boy! This is our first, long-awaited child, so it's a very exciting time. But I still find time to craft!

Thank you for visiting & hope you'll join the fun at Crafting with Dragonflies
