Special Delivery

I love making baby cards.  And it’s been quite a while.  So when my husband came home from work requesting two, I welcomed the task.

I pulled out one of my all-time fave baby sets, Baby Love, from the Kim Hughes Collection (previously by Cornish Heritage Farms).   (I’m crossing my fingers that Kim adds this set, or a variation of, to her Paper Smooches Kismet Collection.)

I did just a wee bit of coloring and pieced the little bundle.

On the inside, I adhered a scrap of the patterned paper and stamped the silhouette of the stork.  I stamped the image onto the front of the envelope as well.

Gotta love quick and easy.  :)

For the second card I used the little giraffe from the same set.

I die-cut the patterned banner using My Favorite Things Mini Pennant Die-namics, handwrote the letters, added some quick coloring on the giraffe, whisked in some ground/grass with pencils, and dotted over the eyes with a clear glaze pen.

A simple finish to the inside.  :)

I’m not sure which one I like best.  How about you?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
