Here's the "How To"

As promised, here are the basic instructions for the two baby cards shown in the International Highlights Top Ten Bog Hop. They really are simple, but there is a bit of fussy-cutting involved!

For the baby boy card, start with a Crumb Cake card base and add the Dapper Denim ombre Color Theory DSP cut to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".
  1. Heat emboss the Hello Baby in white.
  2. Using the Large Letters Framelits, die cut B-O-Y from Crumb Cake and Dapper Denim cardstock. Use liquid glue to adhere the letters together, slightly offset for a shadow effect. Attach to card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  3. Die cut or punch stars from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhere with liquid glue.
  4. Stamp baby and stuffed animals on Shimmery White cardstock, color & fussy-cut baby and teddy bear, and adhere with dimensionals.

For the baby girl card, start with a Shimmery White card base. Cut the Delightful Daisy DSP to 3-3/4" x 5", wrap Very Vanilla Baker's Twine around and tie a bow. (I found it easier to adhere the DSP to a scrap of cardstock cut the same size before tying the twine.) Adhere to card base.
  1. Stamp moon/baby twice on Shimmery White. Color one baby with Blender Pens and fussy-cut baby. Die cut other baby and moon using third largest circle die in Layering Circles Framelits (it measures ~2-3/8" diameter).
  2. Use a mask to cover the sky, and sponge So Saffron to color the moon, leaving sky uncolored.
  3. Stamp greeting on sky above baby.
  4. Adhere to doily, and then attach to card with dimensionals.
  5. Adhere fussy-cut baby with dimensionals.
  6. Die cut stars from Gold Glimmer paper, attaching small one with liquid glue, and large one with a dimensional. (Note: I twisted Gold Metallic Thread together to make the cord the star is hanging from.)
