Is there any better reason to create a congratulations card than a new baby? I think not. I love making baby cards and to be honest, love making not traditional looking ones. Here’s my latest new baby card.

Design Notes for Daisy Delight Baby Card:

Stamparatus

One of the fun things about this card is that I got to use my Stamparatus. I made the wreath by using a template and the Stamparatus. You can learn more about it by checking out my video tutorial on YouTube. Click here to go to the video.

Dying Ribbon

The other different thing is the ribbon. As I was making the card, I used the Dotted Ribbon. Something just didn’t look right. Then I realized I needed color! Sponge and some ink and VOILA!. Petal Pink ribbon. How easy is that!

Twisting My Words

Finally, I wanted to tell you about the sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set. I stamped it with Night or Navy ink on Whisper White paper. Hummmm, how to cut it out? None of the punches or Framelits I have did what I wanted. I studied the stamp itself for a minute. It’s photopolymer. It bends. I bent it just a bit, inked it up and stamped. Then it fit perfected into one of the banners on the Duet Banner Punch.
