Something For Baby Made With Love

New Babies are So Much Fun!

I love to create cards, buy gifts and attend baby showers to celebrate a new baby! The gifts and cards don't have to be complicated either. The Big Shot and dies do most of the work on this one.

This little card uses the Stampin' Up! Baby's First Framelits to cut out cute images from the Something For Baby Stamp set.

The card base is Crumb Cake. Next is a layer of Very Vanilla with a onesie die cut from the middle of it. Put your favorite paper behind this die cut. 

Stamp the stacking toy from Something For Baby on Whisper White and color it with markers. Stamp the duck on So Saffron, or just cut it out and add an eye with a black marker. Use the matching framelits from Baby's First Framelits to cut them out.

The little turtle on the onesie is snipped from a piece of Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper (retired). You could easily substitute any other stamped or snipped small image here.

Stamp the sentiment from the Made With Love stamp set in a coordinating color. Pop up the duckie and stacking toy on dimensionals.

Stamp the Baby banner from Celebrate Today and cut it out with the Balloon Framelits and you're done. Not a lot of stamping, since the framelits did most of the work!

This card is for the SUO Challenge #155 - Cute and Cuddly!
