I was so excited that our challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot was vintage this week because I'd been browsing the adorable images on my Peggy Loves Vintage New Baby Volume 1 CD and came across this precious bundle. I have no idea why, but I've had baby fever (no chance, I'm WWWAAAYYY too old for that, LOL). The CD is chock full of fabulous vintage images and this sweet little guy all wrapped up in his blanket just called out to me and I HAD to use him. I resized him to fit a 2 1/2 inch square and cut him out with my Nesties along with a scalloped mat. Then, to echo the blanket, I cut a 5 inch square and used my MS punches (these are obviously my current faves since I used them 2 weeks in a row, LOL), scored each side twice diagonally and ran it through my Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots. Then I folded each corner in, then out on the score marks to make the sweet dimensional frame.
I decided that some weaving might be in order (thought it looked like an old fashioned baby blanket) and once I'd woven the strip I embossed it with Swiss Dots as well. I cut a channel in the top mat and embossed it with one of the 5X7 folders from the Romance bundle. I ran my ribbon over the mat but under the weaving and added a bow.
The image is popped and I added pearls and little Alpha Beads to finish it off.
