Birth Announcement and Baby Card

I received this birth announcement in the mail last week. One of my Club Members had a baby boy on December 6th! The announcement was made with all SU! products, and it does my heart good to see my ladies using their goodies! The base card is Chocolate Chip and stamped with little stars and moons in matching ink (you can't see the tone on tone stamping in this photo). Then there's a Wild Wasabi strip that is also stamped tone on tone. Next is Soft Sky matting the Apricot Appeal piece with the facts about Calvin Joshua. The "introduction" is stamped with Black Stazon. A 1" circle punch was used to make the soft sky tab at the top and Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon is knotted and adhered to that. The giraffe was stamped, colored with markers, cut out, and adhered with dimensionals. Finally, the giraffe was also stamped on the envelope and colored with markers.
  • Stamps: Bundle of Joy
  • Papers: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Apricot Appeal
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Stazon Black, SU! Markers: Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories: One Inch Circle Punch, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon
This is the baby card I made to send her. The base card is Almost Amethyst. Next is a layer of Prints Double Sided Designer Paper (DSP) matted on Whisper White and Ticket Corner Punched. Before adhering to the card, I added the white grosgrain ribbon. The scalloped circle was cut out of glossy photo paper on my Cricut machine. The "Zoofari" rhino was stamped with white craft ink on more DSP with smaller polka dots. I went over the eye, horn, teeth, and tail with a white gel pen and outlined the horn and tail with purple gel pen. I used 1/8" white satin ribbon to make the little bow at the rhino's neck. The scalloped piece with the rhino was popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment from "Short and Sweet" says, "Welcome Baby" and was stamped with Almost Amethyst ink on Whisper White. Then, it was punched out with the Small Oval Punch. A piece of the Amethyst card stock was punched with the Large Oval Punch, and the two pieces were adhered together with the ends punched with a 1/16" punch for the white button brads. The sentiment panel was also popped up on dimensionals.
