Elegant Baby Shower Card for a Girl

Stamping' Up!  Baby shower card

Today I created a super simple baby shower card. I love the cutesy animals in the current sets, but I wanted to create something a bit more elegant for mother having her fourth baby very soon. So, I stuck to colors one of which was crumb cake, and whereas I would usually put little feet or booties across the bottom, I went for butterflies. It gives the card a slightly different feel. But, as with last weeks’ card, it is extremely easy.

Tool kit (all available from my Stamping’ Up! store):

Card stock in crumb cake
Card stock in another color – I used Primrose Petals, which has been retired, but melon mambo would make a great alternative (or Pool Party for a boy / Smokey Grey for gender neutral?).
Ink pad in color 2
Decorative Dots embossing folder (I ummmed and ahhhhed about whether or not to use dots or stars, and honestly, my next order is going to contain a Happy Heart embossing folder for baby shower cards)
Papillon Potpourri Stamp set
Bitty Butterfly Punch
Elegant Butterfly Punch
Bitty Banners stamp set, (This has been discontinued but I think it would look cute to write a message)
Bitty Banners Framelit dies
Pearl Basic Jewels

Other tools:

Assembly is really easy. Just cut out the follow parts (I made the crumb cake embossed background 4″ x 5″) and stick together, adding pearls as embellishments (or rhinestones for added glamor):

As ever, if you don’t want to make it, you can always pick it up from my Etsy store.

Happy Stampin’!
