Baby cards...

I'm not quite sure why I'm on this baby kick...other than there are lots of women around me expecting! And as long as its not me, I'm perfectly happy to make For this sweet little boy card I used SU! Blue Bashful for the base and a second layer of Certainly Celery was a perfect combo. The PP is Provo Craft(Mon Petit line) and I purchased it at Micheals. Now, the whole concept behind my little pea pod(Papertry ink) was to have it "appear" that it was laying in a bassinet and covered with a quilt. I used my SU! slit punch to create the scallop strip for the blanket and used my Mega Scalloped punch for the pink(bazzill) bassinet base. The dot bg is from the Itty Bitty set and the quilt dots are from the bg stamp set Dots and Paisley. I tied with Mike's ribbon and added some Crystal effects to the peas to make them 3-D.
The baby girl card is pretty much the same concept as above, but with a few differences. Obivously, it being pink for a girl, which I used Pretty in Pink ink on my SU! Paisley bg and stamped on PTI white select. I also added some faux stitching around the center image. These center squares actually started out as 3x3 cards, but after putting embellishments on, I wanted to turn them into cards.
