I decided to do a quick and easy Congratulations card for a new baby. Of course the colors could be changed to make it appropriate for a little boy or, the stamped image could be changed to one of the Zoo Babies in pink/blue. The only detail that I think might need clarifying is that after I ran the pink card stock through the Hexagon Hive Thinlit die, I ran it through the polka dot embossing folder and then sponged the dots. Both stamp sets I used can be found on page 56 of the annual catalog and/or ordered here online.
Stamps: BABY PRINTS (128418 wood or 125472 clear), CUDDLES & KISSES (131913 wood or 127314 clear)
Card stock and Ink: Smokey Slate, Pink Pirouette
Other: Hexagon Hive Thinlit, Oval Collection framelits, Pink Pirouette 3/8″ taffeta ribbon, stampin’ sponges, paper snips, mini glue dots, multipurpose adhesive
In addition, I just HAVE to share this card and envelope with you too. My daughter, Vanessa, will be graduating from the R.N. nursing program and getting “pinned” while I am on the Stampin’ Up! Caribbean cruise this year! I HATE to miss her pinning! I remember what a momentous and memorable time that was for me SO many years ago. But, she is okay with it, understanding the amount of effort that goes in to earning the incentive trips. I am SO VERY PROUD of her!!!! I got my inspiration from Jackie Topa’s blog post some time back. The “pin” on this “scrub” is a mini photograph of the actual pin she will be presented. Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you!
