So Happy For You Baby Card

I really like to make cards with a specific person in mind, so when a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a friend of hers that is pregnant with a baby girl, I got inspired right away. This is the card I made for her, and I'm so happy with how it turned out! :-)

This is a larger card, so it was a little bit tricky to stamp the background. I think I had to stamp it three times to cover the whole card base. I stamped the Hero Arts Tiny Flags Background with Memento Luxe ink in Rose Bud and clear embossed it.

Then I stamped and clear embossed the baby images from my favorite baby stamp set, also from Hero Arts, on pink card stock. The gold embossed stars are from a great set from Mama Elephant.

The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set, and is stamped in the same ink as the background on a label from a beautiful EK Success punch. Finally, I added some extra shine with a Studio Calico mist. Below you can see the embossing and the beautiful shine that the Studio Calico mist gives.

I also stamped the inside of the card and the envelope to match.

Make sure you check back on Friday, because I will be having a giveaway! Yeey! :-)
