Welcome Baby Girls


Yes, you read that right - that's girl times two! This card was made for my cousin's daughter and son-in-law, who just welcomed Mila and Monroe into the world.  When I was looking for inspiration for a suitable baby card, I found the most adorable card in the entire world. Even though it's from six years ago, it's perfection, so I just CASEd it pretty much as is, using what I had on hand.

Again, I had to rely on retired stamps, because I don't have that many occasions to make baby cards (darn it!), so I can't justify the expense of a new baby set every year.  I was blown away by the detail on the original card, and I don't know if you can se it very well here. The scored cardstock made to resemble wainscoting, and the brad "pegs" with the wire hangers just slay me! I hope Karissa and Derek get a kick out of it, too!

STAMPS: Baby Bundle (retired), Party Time (greeting, retired), Baby Tees Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel (retired)

  1. Cindy this card is just delightful! Great for twins and so cute. I have to rely on retired stamps sometimes too, like my recent card for Fab Friday, I had to use Button Buddies for their baby theme card. So I hear you! Thanks for sharing.
