Welcome to the next leg of the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!!  If you're following the hop, you should have arrived from Efrat S's blog.

What makes me a young crafter??  Well, 1.  I'm enjoying the last few months of my twenties and will call myself young until I can no longer get away with it :-) and 2.  i love crafting.  Crafting of all kinds.

The theme of the blog hop is "Our Favorite Things."  Wow... I didn't realize how many favorite things I had until I was getting this post ready!  I eventually narrowed it down to four - twine, Lawn Fawn, Paper Smooches, and embossing.  Using my four favorites, I made this card up for a coworker who is due with her third child in August - 

I started with a card base of Early Espresso card stock and cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that would fit nicely on the front - about 1/4" smaller on all sides (all paper products are by Stampin' Up!).  On the Crumb Cake piece, I stamped the stars from the Teeny Tiny Backdrops set by Lawn Fawn - I have many of their sets and this is one that I use A LOT -  in Versamark ink.  Once the whole piece was covered, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  In the center I cut out a shape that resembled a onesie.  

On a smaller piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I stamped then clear embossed "Congratulations" from the Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches.  I love the handwriting font on all of the Paper Smooches products!  I layered this piece on a slightly larger piece of Early Espresso.  I put a button brad on each end.  Before adhering it to the larger Crumb Cake piece with dimensional adhesive, I Caribbean and Cappuccino twine around that piece.  

I ran a piece of scrap paper through my xyron to make the whole piece nice and sticky.  With the adhesive side up, I covered the piece with Caribbean twine from the Twinery.  Once the whole piece was covered, I added some pieces of Cappuccino twine where the seams would be.  I placed this piece on the Early Espresso card base (make sure that it would cover all of the onesie cut out on the Crumb Cake.)  Lastly, I took the decorated piece of Crumb Cake and placed it on the card base, over the twine square, using dimensional adhesives.
