Oh What Fun... To Make a Baby Card!

I don't get to make a baby card very often.  Today was the day!  Since I bought a gift card (I don't know anything about baby things anymore, apparently!), I wanted to make special packaging.  This baby has been long awaited.  She is coming into a house full of love and overjoyed parents.  She is special!  Here's what I made.

Baby 6

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to make a bag using the Sweet L'il Things Designer Series Paper.   Now to decorate the bag.  The baby's nursery will be aqua and gray so I wanted to use those colors. The lamb is from the new Occasions catalog coming on January 5th.  I painted the lamb using an aqua painter and  the Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride ink pads.  Push down on the lid before you open the pad and you'll have ink there in the lid to use with the aqua painter.  I finished off the lamb with the Blushing Bride bow thinlit also from the Mini Treat Bag dies.  Fussy cut around the lamb and adhere using dimensionals.  The star was made from Sweet L'il Things designer paper and the Star Framelits.  The "For You"  is from the Mini Treat Bag dies.  Did you notice the Venetian Crochet Trim?  It goes around the bag and then the star is adhered on top with dimensionals.  A mini metallic clothespin finishes out the look.  The sentiment is from a retired set called Cuddles & Kisses.  It was perfect!

I used the envelope punch board to make an envelope to place inside my bag for the gift card.  Still using the Sweet L'il Things designer paper I made an envelope measuring 3 X 4.  It took only a 6 X 6 piece of paper.

Baby 4To decorate that I used a background of Blushing Bride cut at 2 5/8 X 3 5/8.  The Very Vanilla cardstock is cut to 2 1/2 X 3 1/2.  The sentiment here is also from Cuddles & Kisses.  Near the bottom I stamped the lamb again.  This time I only colored in the legs, face, and ears.  The Medium Star Punch was used for the star and again I used the Venetian Lace Trim.  The trim was adhered using the handheld stapler.

So again, here is my bag and the envelope.

Baby 7

The grass is Easter grass purchased from the Dollar Tree last year, but it matches perfectly.  Thanks for reading!

Oh my goodness, Jo Anne - this is ADORABLE!! I love all those little details you added - the bow die (I think that's a die cut), the lace, and that little lamb is so sweet. I almost got him on my preorder but decided to wait. I will certainly show this sweet little thing to my ladies. Congrats to the parents; now they will have a sweet card to treasure all their lives along with their new baby girl.
