Giftts for Baby

My son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first baby 
at the end of November, so I've been busy making a 
variety of things for the new baby. 
Today I'm sharing a Baby Shower card and envelope
using a variety of stamps and dies.

I cut a white rectangle using 
Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangles and 
then repeatedly stamped it with 
a heart (Sweet Baby) using 
Sweet Blush, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst 
and Raspberry Fizz, to create an ombre look.
I cut another rectangle and stamped it with 
Vintage Jadeite using Background Basics: Gingham, 
securing this piece at the bottom of the card front.

Flower Power (C.C.Designs) was stamped 
with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured 
with copic markers. The focal panel was 
matted with Lovely Lady card stock. 

The sentiment ( ) was stamped with 
Vintage Jadeite onto white card stock 
and also mounted onto a pink mat, 
then dimensional foam tape.
BABY (Polka Dot Parade Alphabet) was added. 
Several letters together to create dimension. 
Stamping Bella pink dots accent the card front.

Another white rectangle was die cut for the interior of the card. A row of hearts was stamped across the bottom and the sentiment (Hanging Out) was added.

The envelope front was stamped with the 
same sentiments as the card front and then the
teddy bear from Polka Dot Parade #4 was added.
