Baby Card

I need another baby girl card.  I don't have many baby stamps, but I just love the Crafty Secrets Baby Girl Post Cards.  Instead of using the post card, I cut the image out of the post card kit using the Spellbinders Nesties.  The corners were punched with the Martha Stewart Embroidered Punch and the border was punched with the Martha Stewart Quilted Edger and Corner (started with a 5x5 piece of DP (designer paper) that I had in my stash. (punches shown below - don't you just love those punches??)

I made the flowers out of the Vellum and punches (shown below) and added a small Rose Kaiser Pearl in the center.  Be sure and see Selma's Tutorial on how to make the flowers.

I am in love with JustRites newest stamps (shown below) and the Congratulations was stamped from the All Occasions Set and cut with the tags die from Spellbinders.

This baby girl card called for a bow, and as much as I love using the silk ribbon I felt a small sheer bow trimmed in satin was best.

I used another image from the postcard kit and glued it inside of the card since I didn't have a large sentiment I wanted to use.

A close up view of the vellum flower.  These are just too fun to make.  I am so thankful Selma taught me how to make them at the workshop I had in May.  I tried another kind of flower and they just weren't dainty enough for this baby card.  I think these look nice, don't you?
