Social Stamping | baby

Hello friends!  It’s the end of the month which means it’s time for another Social Stamping blog hop with my wonderful Stampin’ Up! friends.

Today we’re making and sharing baby projects – an ode to the start of spring here in the Southern Hemisphere.  You can see all the details about this theme and the full list of participants by clicking here.

I love stamp sets with a cute baby theme.  There’s a large portion of my retired stash that are baby sets I can’t part with.  For today’s card I wanted to use a set that doesn’t jump out as a “baby set” but has included the pieces needed to create a cute ‘just hatched’ card.

This fold uses a normal card base with the top corner cut off and the front folded back on itself.  When closed it looks like this…

The baby is from the Monogram Messages stamp set.  I am in love with those scripted letters!

The dinosaur, egg and sentiment are from the Dino Days stamp set and Dino Dies.  So cute!

I added some embossing with the Woodlands Embossing Folder on the background panel and the Hammered Metal on the egg.

The DSP for the card is from two different packs.  The yellow is from the Whale of a Time DSP and the jade is from the Flowers for Every Season DSP.  My go-to colours for a neutral baby card are yellow and green, so these colours and patterns worked well.  When I look at the yellow pattern, I see dinosaur scales!
