Baby card parade - Day 6

Here is the sixth and final (for now) installment in the week that has been my parade of baby cards!

This one is for another of my customers who welcomed her 5th baby last month.  Little Mitchell made his appearance the very day after I last saw Nikki at a workshop! There's some stampin' committment for you - taking yourself to a friend's workshop a day away from giving birth ;-)

This time I challenged myself to brighten it up a bit...

I combined Pacific Point with Tempting Turquoise then added some Very Vanilla in an attempt to tone down all that bright blue!  I quite like the effect!

I was reminded of how much I like the look of punched out shapes stuck on the same colour cardstock for a kind of dry embossed effect, and took inspiration from my lovely friend and fellow demonstrator Marelle (you'll have to scroll down a bit in the linked post to find the card) in using the small star punch.

I followed on with the "A Star is Born" kind of theme with the large star from Nusery Necessities.

So here ends my little jaunt into the fun place that is baby cards!  I hope you were able to glean some inspiration for any upcoming baby cards you might have a need to create.

I have a lot more to show you and am planning similar project parades along the lines of birthdays, gift ideas and some scrapbooking too!

Stay tuned.....
