Baby Blessings Card


Here's a card I put together for a new baby.

The background was stamped using a Hero Arts stamp called Clouds.  I used Stampin' Up's Bashful Blue Ink.

The grass is from a Martha Stewart border punch.

The banner was hand cut and curled.  It was stamped using a sentiment from Pink By Design's Baby Love.  The ink is Stampin' Up's Pretty Ink Pink.

The die cutting was done using the Cricut cartridge Baby Steps.  There was supposed to be a bird perched on the clothesline as well, but I trimmed it off by hand.  The papers are from the Doodlebug Design 6 by 6 paper pad called Hello Spring.  I used Fruit Punch and Lavender Stickles.  The twine is from My Mind's Eye.  The mini clothes pins were purchased locally I don't know the brand.  I also used a couple Dew Drops in the flower centers.

I had to attach the whole die cut image with foam adhesive because of the clothes pins.  It was hard to get the small areas like the flower stems!

Thanks for visiting my crafty friends :)  I hope you get a chance to do something creative today.
