Two Baby Shower Cards

Hello! I am just back from a nice, relaxing vacation in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, which is why I haven’t posted in a little bit. Hopefully I’ll be back into the swing of things in the next few days (I still haven’t unpacked everything yet…).

Today I thought I’d share two baby shower themed cards that I made recently. I used a Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints Baby stamp set for the cards.

The first card I created by lining up three stamps from the set. in my Mini Misti tool and stamping them out in a straight line across the 4.25″x5.5″ panel (that I added some interest to with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die). I used Versafine black ink for the stamping. For the sentiment (which says Congrats and is not showing up well in the photos…), I stamped a sentiment from the Altenew Label Love stamp set in Buttercup pigment ink. It’s such a great yellow color.

I popped several layers of the card up with some foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension.

Now, time to unpack from last week’s vacation…
