A few baby cards

It seems like I know way too many people who have just given birth or will do so very soon. So here are a few baby cards I made. These two designs are super quick and simple. They would also work nicely as birth announcements. I had some scalloped pieces of this luscious brown by Bazzill laying around, so I thought that would make a really nice edge on my cards. I grabbed a piece of Soft Sky for the boy card. I chose the colour because it matched the blue in this American Crafts ribbon exactly! Next up, I grabbed one of my first gel-a-tins sets (and favorites) Pet Shop. I thought this cute puppy would work well for the baby boy card.




For the baby girl card, I grabbed some PaperTrey Ink Sweet Blush cardstock and matching stitched ribbon. I still had plenty of the scalloped paper left over, so I used that again. I really liked the idea of the announcement on the ribbon of the other card. Since I didn't have any matching ribbon, I went with a stamped sentiment (comes from SU!'s So Many Sentiments) with the image, as well as behind the image. For this one I went with the cat. It's just one of those things, cats always seem more feminine to me, just like dogs seem more masculine. I don't know why.
