Bundle of Joy

I have been a vendor at our local Farmer's Market for the past two Saturdays. I was not sure if this was something I wanted to do but thought it may give me a chance to sell my hundreds of cards I have sitting here. Most of all to possible get some exposure and get my name and Stampin Up out to those who do not know about it.

Turns out many do, most of the folks visiting the market are from our next largest city, and already have demos but they really liked my cards.

While I try to make many different themed cards, I did not have many baby cards. So I pulled out my only baby set, checked out SCS for some inspiration (thanks Corie) and came up with this card.

While it is a bit difficult to see in the picture, I had a stamp of baby feet, have no idea where it is from, but I stamped the little feet all over the white piece of card stock then ran it through the Big Shot with the Lattice Embossing Folder and sponged the edges.

I found a piece of DSP in my stash, while it is SU I do not know from which collection but I do know that it is retired. I stamped the sentiment on a half piece of the top note and sponged the edge. After I had adhered the layers I added some satin ribbon and tie a bow and adhered it with a glue dot.

I added some color to the giraffe and cut it out with my Nestabilitie die as well as the scalloped piece behind the stamped image.

Thanks for stopping by.
