Quick Baby Card - Welcome to the World

Yesterday I was able to finally get a Baby card made that I have needed for almost 2 months! I'm ashamed  to confess that . :0(  Even though I have 11 GC, making baby cards is not one of the easiest things for me to create. I'm not sure why.

I was inspired to by Freshly Made Sketches222 and the color combo over on Color Throwdown for this card.  It's wonderful to have such great inspiration at your fingertips. Once I had my papers and stamps selected, this card went together fairly quickly. I did keep it simple without a lot of extra "fluff".  I embossed the Basic Grey CS and had done the same with the onesie, but I didn't care for the onesie embossed.  I ditched that and just die cut a plain piece of Bashful Bride CS with the Babies First Framelits dies (ret)

I selected the sentiment from the from SU's Happy Happenings and cut it with one of the dies from Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits. This set of dies tends to my "go to" choice a good share of the time. The inside sentiment is from SU's Something to Say. I decided just to tape the gift card inside instead of making a gift card holder. Easy Peasy!

I'm off to do some errands today. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and get to something CRAFTY this weekend!
