Marigold Studio | New Baby Girl Card

For this New Baby card, I wanted to use my dies differently than usual. So I cut a panel from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Mat dies and then used a Stampin' Up Circle Die to cut a circle from the side of the panel.

The cute elephant image came from a smaller stamp set that I had bought a long time ago from Michael's. I stamped it in a light mauve color and then fussy cut it. Same for the balloons, except I colored them in with colored pencils (Stamp came from the dollar bin at Michael's... when it was still a dollar bin!).

The "Baby Girl" sentiment came form a Recollections stamp set I'd bought from Michael's which I fussy cut. I added some dimensionals behind it and paired it with an outline shape stamp. Finally I embellished the sentiment with some pastel buttons in yellow and pink. 

To finish off the card, I added a wide gross grain striped ribbon from Stampin' Up and die cut a couple of stars using the Little B Stars Dies which gave me an adorable stitch pattern too. A pink and white baker's twine bow across the top of the main panel, and a few silver star sequins gave it the required finishing touch. 

A stamped "Welcome" banner on light pink card stock completed the layout. Oh, did I mention, I added the final panel on foam tape in order to give it some depth. I finished the inside of the card with another stitched rectangle die cut from Lawn Fawn and stamped a sweet sentiment from a Fiskar's Stamp Set.  

Hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
