Baby Shower

I needed a baby shower card for my college roommate. She's not into the typical cutesy baby stuff, so I knew I needed something different that wasn't necessarily baby related. She's having (or actually HAD as Miss Grace came about a month early!) a girl, so I wanted some pink.

I started out with the pp. I love this paper as it's a little distressed and is oh so girly! I was able to pair it with Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Fizz.

I die cut the Mat Stack 1 and stamped it with the stamp from Round and Round. I punched quite a few sheets of an old book and scrunched it up a bit. I added a Raspberry Fizz button in the center.

I finished it off with a zig zag on the sewing machine and stamped It's A baby shower in the bottom corner.

I love this card Liz! I'm dying to punch old books. I haven't found a book to do that to though.

The stitching looks really cool! I have been wanting to look into adding stitching to my cards. Love the effect. I also love your PP!

What a sweet card! I love the ruffly blossom you've created and the RF mat stack really helps to set it off! I love this patterned paper - and have been wanting to combine some with "Little Lady" ... now I'm feeling inspired again!
