Baby Girl Card
Here's the card to go with the gift, below. I had a lot of fun making this one! Last year, in anticipation of Christine's baby being born (in June), I bought a pack of the baby alphabet beads, so I could use them on the card.
This went together fairly quickly (for me!), since I used all pattern paper for the front. I don't know the manufacturer of the paper that says "Sweet baby girl" used for the top, or I'd give credit.
The paper on the bottom says "oh so sweet", which I thought was oh so appropriate for this baby! LOL She really is special. Anyway, I edged the pink plaid paper with a SU scallop punch, tied on the organza ribbon and fastened the "Welcome" label (cut/embossed with Nesties Label die) with sugared brads. The beads were strung on silver thread and tied securely to the brads before they were fastened to the card. Some Prima flowers and Martha Stewart pearls completed it.
