Today's card is once again a mix of both old and new Stampin' Up! products with a piece of something "borrowed." No, it's not a wedding card! It's a welcome to this world card for a new baby girl!


I previously mentioned that I would be using up my various retired items, because I'm old school and my upbringing mantra was, "waste not - want not." Be mindful of what is in your craft drawers, and replicate the best you can...sometimes a "case" with a twist is the best outcome! The borrowed piece that I referred to is the ribbon feature. It's not a Stampin' Up product, but something I had on hand in my ribbon box. It adds just the right touch of embellishment to accent the girly nature of the card. Originally I had begun the card vertical, but with the help of my stamping guest yesterday we found the layout worked much better horizontal...thanks Deb! I love to sit and play around with my card design layouts at night after the kids are tucked in, but it is so fun to create with others too! Recently I taught a workshop with ten women where everyone produced 12 cards. At the beginning of class I predicted to all of my guests,  "there are 120 cards being made today, and I bet you all not one will look the same." In the end I was right, but it never ceases to amaze and delight me. Oh baby!
