Baby, Baby

Seems like I've been making a lot of baby cards lately. For this one, I wanted to use the Sweet Baby dies from PTI, and a technique Erin Lincoln taught during SAF, but the dies for the three little critters in this set were manufactured as one solid die. DH got out his Dremel, and now several of my dies have been cut apart by his skilled hands. I will no doubt find my dies more useful, as I did this little Giraffe from Sweet Baby.

For this SAF ribbon technique, you can find the video Erin presented here. She used twill tape, I used satin. (BTW, Erin too just had a baby boy...go figure!)

Dies: PTI Shape Up Series: Onesie, Giraffe from Sweet Baby; SU lace border punch 
Stamps: Sweet from Sweet Baby, baby girl from Impress, Inside Out: Baby (for inside sentiment)
Paper: PTI Stampers Select White, 2008 Bitty Dot
Ink: Dark Chocolate;  Ribbon: PTI Simply Chartreuse; Tiny Buttons: Impress

I found your blog by searching for a way to cut apart the Sweet Baby die without ruining it. My husband is down in the garage cutting with his dremel as I type :) Thanks for the tip!
