Congratulations...

My DD teacher from last year is pregnant. My littlest one wanted to make her a card. She knows she is having a girl. This card is for her...

Unfortunately... I have very few baby stamps.. I haven't needed them... So this is more of a congratulations card...

Recipe:
  1. Cut card from white cardstock 5 x 7. Stamp Butterflies in light pink around the edges.
  2. CB Emboss using the frame around the edges. To make it all the way around I had to cut my folder in half and use tape to hold it along the sides to put along the bottom and top of the card.
  3. I then use lime green chalk ink to highlight the embossing and the edges.
  4. Cut a 4" x 6" piece of white cardstock and stamped the floral border in light pink across. I then embossed using the textured textile Cuttlebug Folder. I used the lime green chalk ink to highlight the dry embossing.
  5. Cut a 3" x 5" piece of white cardstock. Stamp the butterfly border using the light pink ink. Emboss the edges using the just my type emborder on the top and bottom. Ink the dry embossing using the lime green chalk ink.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in the center with the dark pink pigment ink.
  7. Cut dark pink cardstock to mount the sentiment and the middle piece of cardstock.
  8. Mount all pieces and pop dot the sentiment.
  9. Tie ribbon around front of the card under the sentiment.
