Welcome Little One Card

Since I had all my baby crafting supplies out and an extra piece of the printed card stock that I had leftover from the previous baby shower card, I decided to make a matching baby card. Also, I wanted to test out a new scallop frame die from Whimsy and I thought that this card would be enhanced by the fancy edging.  I started with a card blank with a shimmer finish. I intended to align the scallop die almost to the edge of the card fold so that the card would have a scallop hinge.  However, I cut through both layers and had to deal with two scalloped pieces.  The solution was to fold the top edge of the back piece and glue it to the front piece.  I think the resulting card is better than what I had planned.  It was simple work to use the smaller straight sided die to cut the printed card stock and adhere it to the scalloped card blank.  Also super simple was using the Echo Park word dies to cut the purple shimmer paper and glue them onto the card front.  

The cute giraffe was made using the Sizzix stamp and die set. I colored the giraffe with water color pencils and tied a pastel Heiko ribbon around her neck.  While going through my baby crafting supplies, I 'discovered' a really good word stamp that I forgot I had. It was a no-brainer to use it inside the card...jazzing it up with some Doodlebug dimensional heart stickers.  I think that it is fun to coordinate the shower card with the baby card....wonder if the parents will notice?  I imagine they'll be way too busy with the 'little one'....LOL!
