Welcome Baby Liam

My neice was due to have her first baby on May 5th.  However, the little stinker decided to keep his mommy & daddy waiting for another 2.5 weeks.  Little Liam was born May 23rd.  This is the card I made.  The truck & sentiment is from Boy Basic: Truckin it. The pattern paper is from my stash which I am finally using.


A close up of the tag.

 I used copics to color the truck.  As you can see, my coloring skills are at a basic level.(Sorry for the blurriness; I'm still learning how to take pictures of my cards.)


Along with the card, I sent 3 onesies with stamped images from PTI.  When I saw Dawn McVey's Whale Wishes, I knew this would be a perfect image to stamp directly on a onesie.  The frog & truck were first stamped onto inkjet transfer paper which I colored using copics, then ironed onto the onsie using a dry setting.  Each sentiment was stamped directly onto the onsie. 

After rolling each onesie, I placed them in the plastic box that the PTI stamp sets arrive in.  I had meant to take a close-up shot of each onsie before packaging them, but in my rush to get them in the mail before I went out of town, I forgot.
