This is something I have been wanting to make for a while and finally got down to it. :) One of our cousins had a new baby boy, and the crafty person in me just HAD to bust a move. It was kind of tricky to take a pic with the glass of the frame picking up the glare.
I printed the background on Close to My Heart White Daisy Cardstock on my Cricut Imagine Machine. I don't get to play with this bad boy as much as I would like to, but the ink is still crisp and it worked like a charm when I fired him up. This adorable background scene is a special feature on the Nursery Tails Cartridge. Then I started to add some 3D embellishments. The Chevron Paper is from Echo Park's Hello Summer collection. The letters in "Tyler" are from Close to My Heart--the Lots of Dots Irresistables. I inked them with Pacifica Exclusive Ink.
Sunset orange baker's twine form the strings of the parachute. The date hangs on one of the Chalkboard Shapes. Pretty cool birth date, huh? :)
I wanted to add a pinwheel to the scene, so I got on the Cricut Craft Room and used a cut from 3D pinwheels to make this cute little blue one. A sucker stick is attached as the stem.
I was really hesitant to make a personalized boy shadowbox frame because I have all girls, lol, but I think it turned out fabulous--and I think Tyler's mommy loved it! That's what it's all about! This will be a new customizable addition to my Etsy shop in January!
