The Projects:
When I saw Pretty Little Studio's Baby Jack collection, I couldn't wait to dive right in! I love the colors, patterns, and adorable images. I had hoped to use this collection to create a variety of projects for my precious baby nephew, Roscoe, but unfortunately that won't be happening. I do plan to make a remembrance book with this collection and some of my favorite pictures of him, though.

For today's project, I created a card and gift tag set:
There are a lot of options of The Twinery's twine that I could have used with this collection - it pairs well with some of the bolder colors as well as many of the softer colors. I surrounded myself with a variety of coordinating colors: Caribbean, Marigold, Mandarin, Seaweed, Cantaloupe, and Flax - but I eventually decided to pair it with The Twinery's Buttercream twine. (The Twinery's Buttercream twine is one of my all-time most used colors. I love it!)

For the gift tag, I paired The Twinery's Buttercream twine with a variety of Pretty Little Studio products from the Baby Jack collection: vellum, bingo tags, patterned paper, and stickers.
For the card, I decided to try my hand at a shaker card. The shaker area is backed with vellum and has some confetti mix behind the plastic window. (I used some of the Pretty Little Studio packaging as the plastic for the window.)
I added some patterned paper (again from the Baby Jack collection) and The Twinery's Buttercream twine to the front of the card - then finished it all off with that cute die cut. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

If it's any comfort you can think of your nephew sailing off to heaven in the little boat. He's got the spy glass to watch over his family. Sorry for your loss.
The card is beautiful.

I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Roscoe. I browsed around at length on the link. What joy he brought to so many in his short precious life. Your project for him is very sweet. May the Lord continue to bring comfort to you and all of his family.

I am very sorry for the loss that has happened to you, it is sad to lose close people and even more sad to lose such young little new people. Now he's in a better place, perhaps!

But I should say the cards are very very cute. A great gift for a child.
