Welcome baby card.

This is a very quick card I have made for a new baby (my cousins first grandchild). You will have seen card designs similar to this all over the web.
I made this with an off cut of "Berry Bliss" DS double sided paper. I folded it in half, the inside is that soft pretty in pink that goes so nicely with close to cocoa and pomegranate.
To make the "dress" I cut a hole in the top of the card for the "neck" of the dress with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Then cut out two pink scallop circles.
I cut a hole in the first one and fitted that as a frill around the neck.
The second scallop I cut into the flower shape and stamped welcome baby on it.
Next, I cut out the two triangular side shapes to form the sleeves and skirt, then
Used the scallop-edge punch to shape the bottom of the dress.
Added a ribbon around the waist ... done.
You could do a few of these and always have one on stand by for those surprise births, christenings and even first birthday invitations that creep up on us all too often.
