A Quick Baby Card


     After putting in so many hours of putting together my niece’s baby shower, do you think I even thought about making her a card?  Ah…nope!  Once again, I was making a card as the family is heading out the door.  LOL…so typical of me!  Luckily, I had a few elements leftover.  The image panel was the first one I stamped when I began the shower invitations.  I quickly realized that it was way to much masking to have to mass produce 30 invitations.  I set it aside for use on some later project…this one!  hehe  I quickly ran a Whisper White card base through the Big Shot with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then I ink distressed the raised frame with Pink Pirouette and the flat stamp from the Distressing Essentials Kit.  I layered the image panel on a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and placed them on the card base.  The sentiment and the image is from the Baby Bundle stamp set.  I colored the image in using a Blender Pen, classic inks and, on some images, markers.  I threw a few words of wisdom inside the card, signed it, snapped a quick photo (sorry for the lousy lighting), stuffed it in the envelope and was out the door!  Seriously…I should get it all together some day :) 

     Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to make a few baby cards…just to have on hand :)  Have a great day!

  1. Do you know, I don't have a single Baby card on hand myself!! Like you, it is normally a last minute thing as I dash out the door!! Lucky you already had the artwork done for this super cute card, eh?!!

  2. Managed to finally catch up on some blog hopping ... and can't believe how many baby cards I saw! Seems babies are in the air! My daughter is due in 3 weeks ... our 1st grandchild. Might have to CASE this one ... but need to get that gorgeous embossing folder first! Hugs xxaxx
