Bundle of Love Baby Card

Sometimes you just need a cute baby card!!  I think this card delivers on that!

We made this card at our last Simple, Beautiful Card Class at the stamp studio.  Everyone loved it!  It's just so sweet :).

If you're interested in learning more about our Simple, Beautiful Card Class, this class meets the 2nd Wednesday of every month anytime from 4-9pm and the following Friday from 1-3pm.  We make 4 cards at class.  You can either pay a $15 fee for your 4 cards, or..... place a minimum order and your cards are FREE!

The next Simple, Beautiful Card Class meets this week on Wednesday, September 13 anytime from 4-9pm.  We would typically have a class this Friday, September 15, but I'll be at a conference that day (so, no Friday class this month!).

If you'd like to attend class on Wednesday, September 13, just email me at to RSVP :).  I'd love to have you join us!

Ok, on to our card.....

We start our card with a Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock base, then added a layer of Very Vanilla card stock embossed with the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  I think these ruffles kind of look like ruffles on a baby's bloomers :).  Can you see it??

Next, we added 3 banners to our card using a 1 1/2" wide piece of Blushing Bride card stock and 2 pieces ( 1" and 1 1/2" wide) of the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).  We flagged the ends of these banners using our Banner Triple Punch.  This Bundle of Love DSP isn't just for babies!!  Each side is printed with either Blushing Bride or Soft Sky on one side and then a gold pattern on the other side (see the example below).

Next, we added a Very Vanilla Baker's Twine bow around our layers and then tied a piece of Blushing Bride Double Stitched Ribbon in a knot around this bow.  I am having so much fun playing with all of our new ribbon and twine in the catalog - did you know we had 49 new ribbons this year????  That's a LOT of ribbon to play with :)

Finally, we stamped "hello baby" from our trusted and long-standing Stamp Set, Teeny Tiny Wishes.  This stamp set is always there for you in a pinch!  With 24 different stamps in this set, it includes a greeting for almost every occasion!  We stamped our greeting in Soft Suede ink and then die-cut it with the Layering Oval Framelits. We also added another Soft Suede scallop circle (die-cut from the same framelits) behind our sentiment.
