Baby Girl Card

Told ya I needed to make baby shower cards.  Yesterday I posted the boy version so today is the girl version!  I made two of these as well except the second one is slightly different.  Same paper but different placement of the elements.


And once again I used My Thoughts Exactly stamps, Trendy Twin's twine and Recollections paper.  Pretty cute huh?  Isn't the elephant adorable?!

I think next up will be a neutral gender card.

Baby Shower Congratulations Card

I realized I had only made one baby shower card EVER!  That needed to change so I decided to make another.  In fact I need to make a few.   

I had gone to Michael's last week and saw the cutest 6x6 paper packs from My Minds Eye and swooped up a few.  Too bad I didn't get them when they were 2/$8.  These little packs are really perfect for making cards and that's exactly what I did with them!  I used paper from MME Blink of an Eye 6x6 to make my latest baby boy card.

I wanted to stick with a classy look for this and I think I pulled it off.  I used a punch to cut out the star and then stuck the star studded background in behind the star for a pop of pretty design!  I used a My Thoughts Exactly stamp set for the sentiment both inside and out.  I think the embossing and inking of the edges really makes the card stand out more so than it would have had I not used those techniques.  Oh and of course I used my favorite twine...Trendy Twine to tie the little button into the design.  Inside I stamped "mommy to be".  Normally I don't stamp sentiments inside cards but I am trying to see how I like it so I gave it a try.

Oh, I also made a second card that looks exactly like this but without the sentiment inside that way it can be used for any congratulatory reason.  I liked it THAT much that I made more than one.  :)
