Mr. Cardmaker Is Gaga for the GooGoo

It is always a happy day when you get to make a New Baby card!

My friend Kristin had her second child, a sweet, beautiful little girl. I HAD to get a card together.

Have I mentioned that my mojo has been on the fritz since the holidays? I think I might have blown a fuse, or something.

I have had very little experience doing baby cards, because the kids in the family were well beyond that place when I took up this card making thing. I DO like a challenge...

I made this--

I hand cut the onesie, (is that what it's called?) form pink cardstock, and found a teensy star stamp to give it some pattern. I used my piercing tool on the edges and added a tiny bow.

Do you LOVE that sentiment?!  I did it in liquid platinum embossing powder. Looks like my ribbon did some drifting while I did these pics...

I had JUST bought some felt in various colors, and what a perfect chance to use some to make flowers for this card.  I used a mini brad to hold the layers together, and I found if I pinched the flappy-part UP, it actually pinched the whole flower into a really attractive place.

Another view--

I think the baby liked it.  Her Mama said she did, even though I didn't see her eyes open up too much during my visit. I guess drool says much more these days than it once did.

Welcome to the world, little Miss!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
All Best--
