Hello, Baby!

When I recently initiated a card-challenge with a friend,  I fully intended to make it "multi-purpose". Our goal was to create a baby-themed card from the "Spring Card" tutorial  on SCS (<-- click it for the "how-to"). We wanted to try a new technique, yet I had a serious need to whip up a cute baby card. My fabulous friend, Dawn, welcomed an adorable baby boy to the world last month and I needed something fun to pair with the baby gift. 

I love the design of the "spring card". I think it's pretty cool that it just stands up on it's own, as if to say "Hey, look at me...I'm cute and fun!" I had a tough time deciding on an image for the card, because I really wanted to keep it super-simple and let the whole design of the card stand out. Somehow fashioning a circle punch in the shape of a baby carriage fit the whole simple style I was going for. I'm not even going to get into how many other things I attempted before I went with this option. If you have ever stamped with me, you know how I am with the indecisiveness...Ugh! I'd like to say I'm just determined in this respect, not completely obsessive! Ha! :) 

Stampin' Up! Supply List:

Stamps: Baby Bundle, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Basic Black classic ink

Paper: Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla cardstock, Notebook DSP (It's very retired, sorry)

Non-Stampin' Up! Supplies: light blue sparkly bling, some really fabulous markers :)
