New Baby Card for Baby Girl
I needed a new baby card idea for an attorney I work with who just had a beautiful baby girl. I’ve only been designing baby boy cards lately, so I wanted to come up with a “sugar & spice and everything nice” card for a sweet little newborn girl. 🙂 Of course, just changing out the color of the bow, ribbon, and other accessories makes all the difference.
Baby Bear was my stamp set of choice. Using the two- or three-step stamps you can create exquisitely detailed images. This adorable little teddy bear was created using Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, and Early Espresso inks, and looks soft enough to touch!
HINT: Did you know you can buy our Classic ink pads in collections and save over 15% than if you bought them individually? Your options are: Neutrals Collection, Regals Collection, Brights Collection, Subtles Collection, In Color 2015-2017 Collection, In Color 2016-2018 Collection.
I decided to go with a brown background to coordinate with the cute and cuddly teddy bear. The lighthearted Early Espresso polka dot designer paper creates a pleasing and interesting background. It’s part of the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack, which consists of 40 double-sided 12″ x 12″ sheets of a variety of patterns in ten different colors.
I chose a Blushing Bride Ribbon from my retired ribbon stash to coordinate with the Blushing Bride paper bow that I stamped and then cut out using my Paper Snips. A few Blushing Bride Enamel Shapes were added to the card sentiment as a final touch.
Here’s a look at the color combination I used for this card:
