Baby Shower Greeting Card

Some greeting cards that should always be available in your collection for use are: Birthday, Weddings, Baby Showers, Graduations, and Thank You. Therefore, I have created a new baby shower greeting card that can be used regardless of the infant's gender.

This greeting card was also created to meet this week's Crafting by Design's greeting card challenge. I hope you enjoy!

To recreate this card I used a Daisy White cardstock base measuring at 10"x 4.5" that was folded to create a 4.25" x 5" card. The Close to My Heart stamp that I used is a retired one called, Miracle, D1140. The Miracle infant image was stamped in Dessert Sand ink onto Colonial White cardstock measuring at 4.5"x 2.5".  The ribbon and buckle are a part of the Pear Mini Medley, also a retired item. I also used three cardstocks to the right of the card: Petal (1.25" x 1.25"), Buttercup (1.5" x 1.25), and Sweet Leaf (1.5"x 1.25"). I used Colonial White Waxy Flax to ensure that my buttons were not bare. I also hand stitched the zig-zag and criss-crossed pattern using floss.

 I did not like showing my criss-crossed stitch pattern in the back of front cover of the card so I covered that up with Buttercup cardstock measuring  3" x 3". The zig-zag stitch was still visible but was neatly done.
