I have finally reached that point in my life when all my friends from university and school are having babies! I know that I’m in amongst them too, but I don’t generally make cards for myself, I do however always send a gift and a hand made card to welcome their new arrival.
One of my university girls had a beautiful baby boy in mid-February, and although I made the card the day she told us he had arrived I didn’t get around to buying the gift until last weekend! So, this is going out a little later than I would have hoped. However, I always buy baby clothes and generally size WAY up (like 6-9 months!) so I know that this isn’t going to be wasted!
At this point I have to admit that I really don’t own that many baby / children’s stamp sets (I know that this is going to change!) and so reached for a stamp set with some really cute images instead. Hey Love is really a Valentines set, but I think it totally works for baby cards too! (or birthdays, or just because!)
I stamped the Otter in Memento Black ink and used Smoky Slate Blends to colour him in, with a hint of Flirty Flamingo for that heart.
The sentiment is from Animal Outings, which Stampin’ Up! doesn’t list as a Baby set, but it does have this perfect Welcome Little One Sentiment.
I thought the card was a little plain, so used the Basket Weave embossing folder to add some texture and finished the card with a cute bow of Whisper White Bakers Twine.
What’s your go to set for baby / children’s cards? I would LOVE to know in the comments box below…
