Baby Cards

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine, Amber, had a baby girl.  Of course, I wanted to send a card to celebrate the addition to their family.  As it usually happens, whenever I need a card to send right away, I don't have one ready.  So this time I got smart and made four cards - two girl ones and two boy ones.



I'll be ready when the next boy makes his appearance on this earth. Here's the card to prove it.




Above is the card that I sent to my friend Amber and her family.  I used the Top Note die, the 1 1/4 inch square punch, and the petals a plenty embossing folder to make the "baby quilt."  The stamp is from a retired set called So Many Scallops.   I added some Dazzling Diamonds using the two-way glue pen to the moon and stars.   Welcome baby Rylyn!

Susan I love the baby cards and I think I'll make a couple of these two. The embossing folders just make them look like real quilts!. Nicely done. I'm now your 22 follower, having picked you up on Stampin Connection. I'm number 212 on the list so hopefully you'll follow my blog too.

How do you get the paper squares to stay together in the embossing folder and make sure they stay together after embossing as well?
