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. :)
