Hello Baby Card

Hope everyone had a great New Year's and are settling into a New Year!!  We decided to go back to Lancaster for the holiday and had a great time!!  Jennifer loved putting on the hats and blowing the noise makers and wishing everyone "Happy New Year"!

Before the holidays, I made this card for my friend's first grandchild!  I got the idea from a similar card in Pinterest.  Cleaning up my desk I realized that I had never posted it.

I used SU Bashful Blue CS for the base with a layer of Whisper White.  I then added another layer of Whisper White that I embossed with my Swiss dot folder.  I die cut my oval with my Spellbinder's Petite Scalloped Oval large die and stamped my baby booties with my Stitched Stocking stamp set using White craft ink.  I planned on using the matching punch, but when I went to punch it out it did not work!!  I was so annoyed as this was the first time I had used the matching set!  So I ended up cutting it out by hand and decorated the booties with some silver thread.  I stamped my greeting with my Teeny Tiny Wishes SU set and made a banner out of it and popped it out!  I was happy how it turned out.

Since the punch is now retired with SU, I was fortunate to find one on Ebay.  This will teach me to make sure the punch is in working order when I receive it.  The cold weather is supposed to be coming back this week and bringing some snow along with it.  We really haven't had any snow so far this year so I guess we are due.  Hope everyone has a good week!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

PS - I just saw this video on Pinterest and thought it was pretty interesting for future punches!!

I love those socks! I need to make a baby card, too, but no hurry. I do enjoy baby cards! Love the simplicity of this and the sweet blue and white. I've had that very thing happen to me with an SU! product. Waited too long to try it out and couldn't return it. Stay cozy in the cold weather!
