Sweet Baby Emily

When my niece had a baby girl in August I made one card for the baby, to attach to her gift and a second card for the parents. Emily is their second child, so I addressed the card to the whole family, along with a gift - a frame engraved with the word 'family' - just perfect for their first family portrait. 

 I used Sweet Baby stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink for this card:

* The front panel was impressed with Simple Stripes Impression plate and then mounted onto a card base of Stamper's Select White using 3-D foam dots. 
* The giraffe was die cut, stamped in Harvest Gold with the corresponding image and then added to the card front with foam dimensionals. A narrow pink ribbon was attached to the neck and a pink felt heart was added. (Love Lives Here die) 
* A small black pearl was used for the eye.

* The sentiment panel was created with Perfect Patches die collection. 
* Pink ribbon was laced through the openings of the white rectangle in order to frame the sentiment (Hanging Out) stamped with Grey Wool (Close To My Heart).  
* A Stamping Bella pink adhesive dot gives a little sparkle to this panel and then mounted onto the Harvest Gold card stock.

The inside of the card: Movers and Shakers Sentiments

The envelope was addressed to the family with another 
 stamped giraffe and the sentiment from Take Three: Summer
