Better Together... Congratulations on Your New Arrival

Isn't this the cutest baby card you've seen in a while??

I love that it's "generic" and could be used for a boy baby or a girl baby :)


We start our card with a Whisper White card base, then added a piece of 2015-17 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack in Mint Macaron - I love those diagonal strips - they make such a crisp looking card!

Next, we stamped that cute bear using the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink.  Then, we stamped his eyes, nose and mouth in Early Espresso ink.  Did you know that you can still order this Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog??  It's not just for the holidays - this stamp set can be used to make cute baby cards, too!

We also stamped his ears in Crumb Cake Ink directly on our Whisper White scallop circle (which we die-cut with our Layering Circles Framelits).  If you don't have these dies yet, you really need to order them!  I use mine ALL the time!

Finally, we stamped his bow-tie in Mint Macaron ink.

Then, we punched out our bear and his tie out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and added him to our scallop circle with Dimensionals.

Next, we stamped "Congratulations on your New Arrival" in Early Espresso ink from the Better Together Stamp Set.  We flagged the end of our strip of Whisper White card stock with the Triple Banner Punch.

Finally, we added a Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Bow to our card.  It's the perfect finishing touch for this card!
