Baby cards are so fun to make and lucky for me I have several friends having babies this summer. I made this card for a friend to give to one of her friends having a little girl. I love working with bright colors, pink and turquoise seems to be one of my most used combinations.
I used the New Arrival cartridge for the Cricut to cut out the baby outfit and hanger. I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture but I used a pop dot on the top of the outfit to give it a little dimension.

I’ve had a great response for the unveiling of my blog. Thanks to all those who took a look at my first post and welcome to the newcomers.
Today’s card is one I made for a good friend who’s going thru a rough time.
