Oh Baby!

It's been a while since we've had an OH BABY! card (plus, I was asked to make a baby card for my mom). I preplanned this card and sketched out a layout. I grabbed Nursery Necessities off my shelf but when I sat down to start the card - I went a different direct. For example, I didn't even use Nursery Necessities. I had perused the gift registry to get a "feel" for the new mom-to-be and when I sat at my desk, I was drawn to all my NEW goodies from the NEW Occasions Mini. I'll have to use the sketch for some other time.
If you look closely, there's just a little bit of stamping on the front of the card. I started with Nursery Letters in versamark on Soft Suede. Isn't that lovely? Really - give it a try. I'll be using more versamark here! Then you'll notice the Sweet Pea DSP. Gorgeous. I let it do the work for me (you know that's one of my favorite tricks). I layered the vertical piece on a piece of Rich Razzleberry and the horizontal DSP was mounted on Old Olive. I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit (it CUTS and dry embosses at the same time!!) to cut out Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana butterflies. I popped them up on dimensionals. A piece of Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta brings balance back to the right side of the card.
For the inside, I sponged Pretty in Pink around the edges of the Whisper White panel. In Barely Banana, I stamped the Butterfly Accent in the upper left. I then (without reinking), stamped the butterfly two more times at an angle down the panel. These are faint enough that the message will be read easily. I used my most favorite font set, Well Scripted, in the upper right in Soft Suede.

Also, in a what's-to-come update, I'll be scrapbooking! I finally got my pictures printed. Whooo hooo! I have a wonderful weekend planned :)
