Hello Baby!

Now that I started a Facebook page for my friends and family to purchase cards, I have begun to think about what cards people will need for certain occasions.  I immediately thought of a baby card when I saw the cute little duck from the Sandy Lion stamp set I purchased on clearance a few months ago.  I'm so glad I bought those 24 Copics before the price increase that started on August 1st.  I love my Bic Mark-It markers, but it's really lacking in light colors.  I wouldn't have been able to color in these duckies!

I chose the light blue, yellow, and pink because then this card can work for either a baby boy or a baby girl.  The green strip was a bit plain on its own, so I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirls folder.  I used a Papertrey Ink die to cut out the cardstock for the sentiment.  The sentiment itself is from Pink by Design's "Big Thoughts" set.  They're actually 2 different sentiments, but I put them together so that it wouldn't just say "baby." 

I love popping everything up!  It gets rather addicting.  Haha, is it just me?  I think MOST cards look better with something popped up although I know that's not true for all cards.

I did make only 3 of these cards instead of the 5 I made with yesterday's sheep.  I wasn't sure if these would be as needed.  Plus, I was getting rather tired cutting out the duckies, haha.  Fussy cutting takes a while, but if it's done well, it looks really good!  I wish my students knew how to cut well.  I would totally pull them out of lunch to help me (after a good thorough washing of their hands!).  Just kidding!
