SSINKspiration Celebrate Baby: Better Together

Good morning!  Spring has finally decided to arrive and for some reason spring seems like a perfect time for babies (maybe because I was a spring baby) so it's only fitting that today the SSINKspiration is celebrating babies and sharing cards made for the happy arrival.  I'll admit I don't tend to make a lot of baby cards at this point so I don't have some of our super cute stamp sets which is why I love our sets that have stamps for several occasions, such as the Better Together set, it has lots of great options so you really get a great bang for your buck.  Also excited because this stamp set is NOT retiring so it will be in next years catalog.

To make this card I started with Pink Pirouette cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Early Espresso cardstock as a mat for the Very Vanilla cardfront.  On the vanilla layer I stamped the little diaper pin image in Pink Pirouette ink along the right side before adding a piece of Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Series Paper (retiring) to the left.  I added a piece of Gold 1/8" Ribbon (retiring) along the seam for  a little bling.

For the greeting I stamped it in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I added a piece of Delicate White Doily (retiring) that I sponged with Pink Pirouette ink and then attached the piece with dimensionals.  I felt the greeting needed to be dressed a little so I added a pink heart and gold enamel dots from the Metallics and Subtles Metallic Shapes (both retiring) as the finishing touch.

I like the softness of this card and little hints of gold help dress it up, which is prefect to welcome a new little princess to the family!  Remember the items that are retiring are only available while supplies last so make sure not to wait to order.
