Sweet Baby Forest Friends

Babies seem to be on their way everywhere I look the last few months! And I have been asked to make a few cards. Lucky you, you get to see them all! This is a money holder baby girl card. I really had fun making this card :)

The top panel of the card front is stamped first, then embossed with the lattice/quilted side of the Perfect Details Texture plate. The Naturals White cardstock took the texture very well. I was very "empressed" ;) And I love those little flower punches with the pearls in the center.

Inside has a folded up flap to hold money, a check, or a gift card. I actually used two different stamp sets on the inside. 

To hold the flap closed, I used a punched flower folded over the edges and adhered it with Sticky Strip.

The sentiment is a single stamp, and I used the Movers and Shapers Modern Label die to mat the Modern Label punch. I am soooo glad I finally broke down and bought those!
  • Stamps: Occasional Quotes, Sweetness Unlimited, Forest Friends, Itty Bitty Bits
  • Paper: Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Naturals White
  • Ink: Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
  • Other: Big Shot with Perfect Details texturz plate and Modern Label die, Eyelet border punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, Boho Blossoms punch, Modern Label punch, Blushing Bride ribbon, Sticky Strip, Pearls Basic Jewels, sponges, Signo white gel pen

And I love the new First Edition DSP! It is light weight and makes great envelopes. I used the retired envelope template to make this one. The card dimensions are 3¾"x6¼" with a 1" flap folded up inside. There will be more to come!
Happy Stampin!
