Welcome Little One...

Welcome to the newest little one in our family! I have a new great nephew! Had to get right on making a card to send out. Here is the card I came up with.

 Isn't this the cutest elephant! I used a Lettering Delights file and my Cameo to do a print and cut of this little guy. I love my Cameo for this very reason! Print to Cut is spot on! I cute several various sized circles of coordinating colors to layer. And of course, I had to use my white gel pen.

I used an embossing folder on the white the little dots! I added a shiny black pebble to cover the printed eye and add some dimension. 

And of fave stamp company...My Creative Time! I used the All Star Baby Stamp set and picked out the two I liked the best. I love how this little stamp curves and pretty! I curled the banner a bit so it has some dimension...hard to see that in the photo, but the flag end curves up a bit and then there is a bit of a dip and curves back up again towards the other end.

And for the inside...this is the one I picked. And how true is this! A baby changes your life forever! 

I hope this little card gives you a bit of inspiration. I love the scalloped shaped card using another Lettering Delight file and welded two together. I cut one more to attach on the top so the welded fold is hidden and the entire scallop shape is visible. is what I used...

Cutie Patootie SVG Set ~ For the card base
