Baby #2

Guten Tag! Hello Friends! I'm super excited for today...on of my dear friends that lives in Germany is here visiting and I get to see her today!! My kids are so excited...oh, I just can't wait! There aren't many things better than good friends, don't you agree!?

So my card for today is another little Baby girl card. When I made this card here, I had some scraps out on my desk and thought I should break out my new Simple Letters alphabet! It is a great alphabet and the fact that it is a set of BigZ dies for the Big Shot, means I can cut though a number of mediums to get my awesome simple letters! YEA! Today, I just stuck with dsp from the Sunny Day simply scrappin' kit.
So, my card started with my dsp and Simple Letter Alphabet taking a ride through the Big Shot (Have I told you lately how happy I am that I have a Big Shot!? I love that machine!!). As I played with the letters, I decided that I just wanted a clean and simple design.

I grabbed some Pink Passion cardstock and made my cardbase. I wanted the letters to have a good contrast, so decided to use a Whisper White layer to put my letters on. If you look at the bottom of the card, you'll see a little white scallop...that is one of the fun border self adhesive die cuts that comes in the Sunny Day scrappin' kit. I used some Pumpkin Pie stripped grosgrain ribbon to tie around the seam of the Whisper White and Pink Passion cardstock. I love that ribbon!

My last touch was my little flower. I LOVE the new Stampin' Up! exculsive, Sizzlit Flower Fusion die! How fun to have perfectly sized flowers of ANY color or pattern! I ran the flowers through the Big Shot with some Pink Passion and Pumpkin Pie cardstcock. As I placed them on my card, I noticed that what looks like the stem of the flowers, is actually a stripe in the paper! How fun is that!? The button is from the classic Fresh Favorites button set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today--make it a great one!
