Social Stamping Baby Theme

Hello and Welcome to a lovely blog hop for Social Stamping!

The amazing Kelly Kent began the Social Stamping Blog Hop as a way for all of us to connect during this stressful year of changes.  It has been a wonderful way to share inspiration and ideas.  If you would like to see the whole list of the blog hop, just click on the above image to head to the host post.  

This month, the theme is Baby.  And happily, there has been a brand new arrival in my inner circle of friends, so I totally had their new little family in mind when I created this cute card!!  

This card is a Z-fold with a cot nestled into the corner of the card.  The ends of the cot were created with the Scallop Tag Topper punch for the top, and a bit of the Storybook label punch for the shaped legs.  The cot itself is a box stamped with the reversible side of the straw from the Jar of Flowers stamp set to represent the bars of the cot.  

The writing panel for the card is on the back and stamped with images from Tasteful Touches, Butterfly Gala and Many Mates stamp sets using Blushing Bride.  

The front of the card features a panel of embossed card with the Tin Tile folder, letters die cut using the Playful Alphabet dies, a balloon created with the Plush Poinsettia paper and punch and some cute butterflies from Butterfly Gala.  

This card folds flat to fit inside a standard envelope - win win!!  

UP next on the Baby hop is the lovely Lisa.
