I don't have much need for baby cards these days (showing my age, aren't I?!), but love to make them, and should have some for my 'stash'.  I've just recently bought a pack of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper in Pink Pirouette Patterns - try saying that 5 times quickly. :)  Anyway, I love the softness of Pink Pirouette, and, prompted by the testosterone overload in my household, decided to sit down and make a baby girl card today.

I love pink and brown together, and was inspired to use this colour combination when I saw my friend Claire's card here.  How cute is that??

Here is my card:

Pink baby card

To ink up the sentiment, I first used a Pink Pirouette stampin' pad, wiped off the second line of the wording using a cotton bud, then coloured in the {welcome home!} with a Close to Cocoa marker.  See how beautifully all of Stampin' Up!'s products co-ordinate?

The products used to make this card are as follows:

Stamps: Good Neighbors (Sale-A-Bration set, that you can get for FREE), Sweet Little Sentiments (hostess set)

Card: Pink Pirouette textured, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White

Ink: Pink Pirouette stampin' pad, Close to Cocoa stampin' pad and marker

DSP: Pink Pirouette Patterns

Other: Square punches - 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and Scallop Square, dimensionals, mini glue dots, Scallop Edge punch, Button Bouquet button, Pink Pirouette 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.

Stampin' Up!'s square punches make it so easy to frame a cute little image - minimal effort, with a really 'finished' result.  Because the Scallop Square punch is designed to fit around the smallest square, and I wanted to mat an extra layer, I created the Close to Cocoa scalloped square by punching out 4 scallop squares, snipping 'bits' off, and layering them to make one big square.

Hope you like!
