Happy New Baby

Hello! I'm posting some cards I made two weeks ago for the silent auction at school.

I loved the design of this card on Ashley's blog earlier this year and I knew I had to make some. Ashley's work is flawless. I loved the simplicity of her design and effectiveness of using tiny images. For the second card, I didn't have the exact equivalent sentiment in Spanish, so I used the phrase "mis mejores deseos" (best wishes). The only difference from Ashley's design is I used some ribbon and staples.

Have a good creative day!



Card Ingredients
Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings (PTI), Flores Llamativas (SU!)
Paper: Baja Breeze (textured), Kraft, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Tools: stapler, 3/4" circle punch, corner rounder
Other: Certainly Celery ribbon, Baja Breeze ribbon, foam tape
