Flourishes and Cuttlebug
Hello all! I hate that this photo didn't turn out as good as I wanted it too...it was night time when I took it...but, you still get the gist and if you click on it, I think it will make the image bigger.
I do not know the name of the CB folder as I threw the packaging away. It is just perfect for sayings like this one from Flourishes. It is one of my favorite stamp sets called Rock A Bye Baby. I had a baby shower to attend and she knows she is having a girl...so what better way to show how happy I am for her than to give her something special like this little card. I used Paper Trey Ink's 2008 Pink Bitty Dots and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and then used White Embossing Powder then heat embossed it. You may not be able to see, but it has little stars around the saying "Welcome Sweet One." I used White Raindrops to add dimension to the embossed image and sheer pink May Arts Ribbon. Of note, I used the envelope die cut from Paper Trey Ink to match the card...oooohhhh how I love this die. It is sized perfect for A2 envelopes. It just makes giving a handmade card even more special when the envelope matches!
I wish I had pictures of the Diaper Cake and Banner that my friend Debbie and I made for this shower... It turned out perfect and was quite the hit of the shower.
I wish every one of you a great week ahead! Thanks for your comments and your visits. I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from what you have seen here :)
