Welcome Baby Pack



One of my DH's friends just had a baby girl and I wanted to make her a card. While I was a M*chaels they had Jolee's stickers with these goofy duck chicks that were just so cute. I was eyeing it for this purpose and this week they were on sale for 40% off so I had to get it. It came in a pack of 9 so here was an opportunity to make a whole set of them.


The base card is saffron with Welcome Baby in soft suede from Something to Celebrate from the Occasions Mini (retired). The white cardstock is diecut using the scallop rectangle clearlit (one of my favorites!) layered with pink pirouette. Little pearls in the corners add that something sweet and special. Added a piece of blushing bride 1/2" stitched poly ribbon then put the rectangle up with dimensionals to raise it up a bit. The little duck is self adhesive so nothing else doing. I figured if you had twins you could have the 2 ducks face each other (they come looking in both directions).















My sister has been clamoring for me to make her some baby cards but did not know if she needed girls or boy ones so I stamped the card with the sentiment and made some scalloped accents in pink and blue with the dimensionals on it without them peeled ( so she can peel it stick it on herself ) and the coordinating ribbon stuck on the back as well as some of the ducks on the acetate sheet it came on.


I figured it would be really quick cards she would only have to pick the color accent, stick the ducks on, peel the dimensionals and stick it above the sentiment and she would be ready to go. I did make a girl sample just in case so she would know what to do with it all. I put the whole thing in the clear mount stamp cases and she will be good to go.

If you want the stamp cases order them now as the prices go up in the next catalogue.


Welcome summer!
