Baby Girl Card


I'm working on baby cards for my husband's squadron to give to new parents, and this is one of the baby girl cards I made.  I don't think I'm going to make more of it - I didn't even want to post it, but at least it gives you something to look at and think, "wow, that is an ugly card!" and you'll know that I really have done a little stamping recently.  Something about it seems off to me.  I think part of it is the ribbon.  I really wish we had Pink Pirouette Taffeta - and I didn't want to take the time to dye mine.  I don't think I'll end up giving this to them to give out - it is just not what I had envisioned in my head - and it was loosely based on the last Top Note card I posted.  I will have to play around with some different designs for the remaining 5.  I wanted to give them 6 girl and 6 boy cards for right now.

  1. Very sweet card...I love those duckies!

  2. When I see cards with "It's A Girl", I think of them more as cards someone would give OUT on the birth of a child, not that you would give TO someone. But that's just me.
    I actually like the white ribbon; I think pink would have been too much with the pink card base.
    Other than that, I think it is just Marvy!!! Really cute duckies. I might have to look at that set now ...

  3. You are being too hard on yourself! The duckies are adorable in all 3 colors! Your card is cute and sweet!

  4. eeee! this is so, so cute! fabulous idea for a baby card.

  5. very cute as always. love the color choices!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
