It must be baby season!
I know 3 women having babies in the next two weeks! I spent Sunday afternoon at a baby shower for a friend who is due in two weeks and there were 4 other pregnant women there too, and one whom had recently had her baby! Today, I was asked to make a baby card for a woman my husband works with, and I had to make it for tomorrow; she is going on maternity leave because she is due in two weeks! Yikes. I enjoy thinking back to when I was pregnant, but I certainly don’t wish I was pregnant again! lol. I am quite happy (and plenty busy) with my two boys! But it is lovely to see the happy Mom’s to be!
Both cards are made with Crate Paper Baby Bee collection.
For the first card, I punched the squares with my Stampin’ Up! Scallop square punch, and embossed the Studio G clear stamps in white. I added buttons tied with embroidery floss, and glued on with crystal effects (clear lacquer) .
The Big Deal card is made using Splitcoaststampers sketch this week. I love this set from Stampin’ Up! called Cute and Cuddly. I added some faux stamped stitching (Sandy Lion clear stamps Kelly Pannaci), paper pieced the little bear’s belly with the same paper as I used on the base, and popped him up on foam dots. I love buttons on baby cards, so of course, there’s one on this card too!
I’m so glad you stopped by, I always enjoy your company! 😉
