Squeal! HOW stinkin’ cute is this sweet lil’ baby girl card? I just love the little carriage, reminds of the days of yesteryear when all the little babes were being strolled around in a carriage like this one. 🙂 As my babies were babies, we didn’t have carriages such as this one, they were on their way to becoming “more advanced” and with more bells and whistles. BUT, today those sweet little “strollers” are more like mini tractor push alongs! Goodness, I think I would need to go to the local community college and take a course in HOW to USE them! Aren’t they awesome, though? You can take the top carrier out and then use for a car seat, they have built in “stereo speakers” to play the baby lullaby’s and such. It just amazes me. So, that’s why this sweet little carriage reminds of the days of yesteryear because of “old” movies I’ve watched over the years, circa 1900’s.
Let’s move along to the card deets! 🙂 I used the THICK whisper white card stock for this card, that stuff is thick and sturdy, let me tell ya! It’s great for cards with heavy embellishments and for 3-D projects of which you need to place little treats, candies, lotions, etc in. I layered with Pink Pirouette and stamped the cute little “diaper pins” (does anyone out there still go this route with their babies?) and stamped the carriage in Blushing Bride as well as the pins. The sentiments were stamped in Blushing Bride as well! 🙂 I used those awesome Circles scallop dies for the background paper to host the darling carriage. I love anything scallop. Even scallop potatoes!
The sentiments come from the Made With Love stamp set and then the “congratulations” sentiment I used our brand spankin’ NEW Classic Label punch. Boy, I just love it this year. You can really fit lots and lots of our sentiment stamp sets in that sweet thing.
We have some sweet friends that just had their new little baby girl and this card gets to travel to that sweet little miracle! You can also, of course, use our Marina Mist, Soft Sky or even Navy if you want to go “traditional” for a little boy baby card. All the images stamped on this card are from the Made with Love stamp set! If you don’t already have it for those new babies that come into your life, you should take a peek. It’s adorable!!!
Well, that’s it for today, hope you got some inspiration a bit for a sweet little baby card, this works for either boy or girl!
If you have any questions or need anything, just let me know! I’d love to help you!
As always, happy stampin’ or doing what you love to do and I hope you get some time to do something you love. Me, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE stamping and Stampin’ Up!
