A client that I work with had their first baby, so I wanted to celebrate with a handmade card. I’m not sure if I enjoy the fact that the title of this post is rather ambiguous. Is it a cute baby? Or a cute card? You be the judge:
At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about this card, as it is really random – but really fun! I wanted to incorporate some teals and greens into it so it wouldn’t be too heavy on the pink. I started with some Echo Park papers to line the base of the card. I cut some banner flags and inked the edges with a touch of Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and stamped them in Smooch Ink. I popped them up with some foam tape, and strung that cute fluttery string/ribbon behind them. A cut some circles in varying sizes and adhered to the lower half of the card. A couple are popped up with foam tape, and a couple have Liquid Pearls in Petal Pink on them to finish.

I hope they love this card – wishing them health and happiness for their baby girl!
