Not So Typical Baby Card

I really have to do something about my selection of stamps for babies!  I made THIS CARD a couple of months ago because I didn't own a baby set, and now I needed another congrats card for baby and still didn't have a baby stamp!  Oh, well!  What is the saying?  Necessity is the mother of invention!  So here's a cute card to welcome baby using the new Two-Step Owl Punch and Word Play!  The color scheme is Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist and Early Espresso with just a touch of Cherry Cobbler for the heart and the word "so".  Notice the bottom piece of the main card front?  I used a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock and dry embossed the circles using the Crop A Dile.  I used this technique when the tool first came out and then sort of forgot about it.  But it's a quick and easy way to add a little "pizzazz" (pun intended!) to your card!  I used the Circle Scissors Plus to cut both the large white circle as well as the Marina Mist frame.  This handy tool has also been collecting a bit of dust lately, and I'm not sure why!  It's a wonderful tool to create any size circle you need.  The owl is perched happily on a branch from Cheep Talk stamp set, and I used Stampin' Write Markers direct to rubber.  The sentiment from Word Play was stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink directly on the card then again in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White card stock and cut out to highlight the word "so".
