Baby Card #1

I couldn't believe when I logged on that it had been a month since I posted anything on my blog. I asked myself where the time went and there was only one answer...Baseball!! But now baseball is over and hopefully things can get back to normal, whatever that means! This post and the next few are going to be some baby cards that I made the last few days. I am so excited to have the opportunity to make some cards to sell at a boutique here in town. It carries mostly baby gifts which is why I made baby cards. I'm planning to add some birthday cards here pretty soon.

Anyway, I love how this first one turned out!! It's so simple and elegant. The base of my card front is dark brown Core'dinations cardstock and the pink striped is from the Cherrio paper pack from Close to my Heart. I cut a 3" strip of white cardstock which I embossed with my cuttlebug using the baby folder. I inked the edges and the embossing with a pink pigment ink pad from Martha Stewart. The square was cut in brown at 3 1/2" and in white at 3". The little girl is from a CTMH stamp set called Baby Miracles. I stamped the image using Chocolate ink, then used my blender pen to pick up color from my Heavenly Pink ink pad to add some color to her dress and bow. I love the watercolor look that gives! The crochet flowers were some I had in my stash that I had made awhile back. I used Fabri-Tac to attach them and accented them with Opaques from CTMH from the Mocha pack.

The sentiment on the inside was from the same stamp set from Close to My Heart, but the baby shoes and teddy bear were from Stampendous. I hope you have enjoyed this card. I have a few more that I will be posting in the next few days. Thanks for stopping by!!
