A Baby Card

I really enjoyed making this card for baby Gryffyn's baby shower. It came out beautiful and elegant just as planned :0)

I used Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette cardstock, Melon Mambo ink, Paper Doily Sizzlit, 2 1/2 inch circle, large oval and scallop oval punches, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and a butterfly die set from another company. I also used a retired stamp set called Little Angel.

If you have the Paper Doily die and have a bit of trouble with it, I use an extra piece of cardstock in my stack and it helps make the little pieces pop out easier and cleaner. So I use my platform, add a piece of cardstock on top, a cutting plate, my die, the cardstock I am cutting and then the top cutting plate. It might make running through your machine a bit tight, I just go slow and steady.

Hope your day is Blessed!
