This is my card for the baby shower today. I love using these October Afternoon papers for die cuts. The tiny patterns work so well on these 'baby clothes.' I did find it better to stamp the embellishments separately, cut them out and the glue to the baby clothes rather than try to stamp directly. The little 'c' is a sticker representing the new baby's first name.
The flowers in the border have a tiny hole cut in the center presumably for a brad. I just did a touch with a green marker in the center of the yellow flowers to keep this simple.
The background of the card is a piece of naturals white cardstock rubbed with pastels. Naturals cardstock has quite a bit of texture to really picks up the pastels.
So my card is more in the 'clean and simple' category than my Mother's vintage inspired card. I enjoyed doing a bit of both to welcome a new baby girl.
I can't wait to show you my baby gift but I'm going to :-) hint: I'm waiting for the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival in May. I'll post a link to the festival on Amy's Creative Side blog when it gets here. If you are a quilter and want to participate, visit Amy at: Amy's Creative Side
