May 22, 2020 Baby Card

Our wonder vet is due with her second child in June.  She already has a boy that is 7 and this one is to be a girl. 
I used a favorite quilt die that a dear friend gave me a couple of years ago for my birthday.  It is from MFT and I have used it quite often for Christmas cards, friendship cards and now a baby card.  I used some baby prints from a big pack of 12 x 12 papers that I have had for a really long time to cut my pieces out.  I cut the frame out using the pink gingham - then it is just a matter of fitting the pieces together, like a jigsaw puzzle, I find this quite relaxing.  I die cut the sentiment Congratulations from pink gingham.  A gift card is inside - diapers, onesies, whatever she needs will be put to good use. 

This is another quilt card I made - this one more of a friendship, thinking of you card using SU papers and SU floral image for the center.  For sentiment I die cut smile 3 times, glued them together and then versamark and clear embossing powder.  I'm thinking this one will go out next week with my chemo cards. 

This die is well worth the investment (or to give as a gift) and I plan on using it many more times.

These are fabulous, the baby quilt card is beautiful, like the teddy bear center, and the second one is so striking with the bold colors!

These are beautiful cards, Shirley. I have that same quilt die, and I love it, too. It's so versatile. I've made a number of Christmas cards with it, too, and I really like how they turned out.
