It's a Girl Card

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is Oh Baby!  What a great opportunity to create something special (i.e., a card or gift) to welcome a new little one into this world.  There are a number of stamps at My Craft Spot that are just perfect for baby projects - and even two entire sets (Bundle of Joy and New Arrival) that are dedicated to babies.


For my project, I decided to make a card.  This card was not made for anybody in particular so I'll tuck it away to have on hand if I hear of the birth of a little girl.


For the white mat on my card, I used my score board to create some lines.  On this, I layered a frame cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet.  I embossed both layers with different heart folders.  The sweet little bassinet is from New Arrival and I also embossed part of this with my Cuttlebug.


I cut my tag using the Tiny Tags metal die set from My Craft Spot.  I think I'm addicted to these little tags!!  The sentiment is from the new My Craft Spot Bundle of Joy stamp set.  I also added some Cotton Candy Divine baker's twine - also from My Craft Spot - and some sweet little buttons to finish things off.


The inside of my card was stamped with a sentiment from Sweet Sentiments - Set #2

There are some precious projects created by other members of the design team so do head over to My Craft Spot to check them out!  Then create your own Oh Baby! project and link up for your chance to win this week's fabulous prize!
