Sweet, Sweet Baby

Team member April Waite and her husband just welcomed their second daughter into the world!  I'm sorely without baby stamps so I created this sweet card using the Big Shot almost exclusively (just one bit of stamping!)  I began with a base of Perfect Plum card stock, then ran Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka-Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The letters are cut with Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz Die in Regal Rose, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Perfect Plum card stocks.  Flowers are cut from Birds & Blooms Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies.  To create the Certainly Celery center, I stamped the image from the heart in Always stamp set using Certainly Celery Classic Ink then punched it out with the 1" Circle Punch.  For the center of the So Saffron flower, I punched a piece of Perfect Plum card stock with the flower punch from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I threaded some white crochet thread through an flower-shaped Bitty Button, tied it in a bow, then adhered the card stock flower to the back of the button with a Mini Glue Dot.  A piece of 5/8" White Organza Ribbon completes this soft, sweet card for baby.

Kriss,  That is an adorable baby card.  I sure wish the big shot letter dies were not so expensive!!  Colors look great.
