Baby Girl and Boy Cards

Good morning! I'm sharing a couple of fun baby cards over at My Craft Spot this morning:

These cards kind of happened by accident - I was trying to clean up my crafty area, and these papers pretty much jumped out at me and begged to be made into a card! 

I used the fun new Big Word Dies from My Craft Spot to cut out the Congrats. I cut it out of white cardstock, then also cut the bottom half of it out of the top of one of my pattern papers. I attached my two pattern papers together, then pieced in the die cut word. I covered it with 2 coats of Wink of Stella for some sparkle, then added a layer of Glossy Accents for a bit more shine. Gives it such a polished and finished look, with very little work!

And, I love when making baby cards to use the same layout and style, and make both a boy AND girl card. So I did the same card but in blues for a boy:

All my pattern paper is by Crate Paper, and I added a bow with Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot to both of them. The girl one used Petal Pink, and the boy one used Sky Blue - both are conveniently packed in the Sweet Baby set. 

I finished off with some machine stitching around the outside, the stamped part of the sentiment from Bundle of Joy stamp set, and and a safety pin brad and a bit of Pearl Bling Strips - both from Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
