A new little someone...


A work colleague and his wife recently had a baby girl, and I volunteered to make the welcome card. This is the card I have made:


The cardstock colours are Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White, and the ink is Riding Hood Red Classic ink. The Designer Series Papers are from the Bella Rose and Candy Lane packs. The giraffe stamp is from the Wild About You stamp set. The sentiment is from the Chit Chat rub-ons and the brad is from the Filigree designer brad set.

The ribbon is 5/8" Grosgrain in Chocolate Chip. I have also used the eyelet border punch and a variety of Spellbinders Scalloped Oval and Plain Oval Dies. I have pierced the large Chocolate Chip Scalloped Oval layer using a paper piercer. As always, I've used a whole bunch of SNAIL, dimensionals, mini glue dots and sticky strip!

The card measures 6 x 6 inches and I will put it with one of the Stampin' Up! square Chocolate Chip envelopes from the Carousel Notes set.

I think that about sums it up. It is waaaaay past my bed time now....please 'scuse any typos.

:-)
Sam.
