Baby Blessings

HELLO THURSDAY!!! Are you as excited as I am for Cricut's release of the new cartridges today?!? It's hard not to be with all the giveaways and hype! I just know I should've called in today! It's a good thing I didn't though, cause with all the cartidges being released, I'll need a second job! lol.

Anyway, I just wanted to share a quick card with you today. My friend at work asked me to make her a card for a baby shower. I finished it up last night. I have to say, I think this is the first baby card I've ever made. The nursery is pink and brown, so this is what I came up with...

I cut the card from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I knew I wanted to use this patterned paper, isn't it cute? So, while flipping through my cartridge books, I thought this card with the scallop layer would be a nice way to use the paper.

I cut "Baby Blessings" from Wild Card, as well as the envelope and liner.

This is a bad picture, but that's the inside of the card on the left, and the front of the envelope on the right. The rattle was cut from my Cricut Sampler cart I got in the mail yesterday, which I got using my Cricut Rewards points!

I hope you liked seeing my first ever baby card, and  have a great HELLO THURSDAY and upcoming weekend!

It's adorable!! You did a fantastic job with it. Good for you, using that Cricut. I don't use mine nearly enough, but I do manage to pull it out more now than I used to, so that's gotta be good for something.
