For baby

When sorting through my craft stuff last week I came across a Baby gift card pocket that I'd put together some time ago and never done anything with it, so I decided to use it on a card this morning. I chose a tag shaped card that has a ready-printed coloured edge and stamped random chicks with a Personal Impressions springtime 'tinchies'. I inked the stamp with yellow citrus chalk ink and then embossed with clear detail - I was disappointed with the result because it was hardly visible. However, I then coloured the chicks with copic Y21 buttercup yellow - you can just about see the embossed outline of the chicks if the card is held in the right light!

The striped card inside the pocket has a couple of little cuts that will house a gift card.

This is for:

Crop stop 58: it's a baby
Totally stampalicious: baby card
Cupcake craftroom February: new beginnings
Crazy4challenges 124: stripes and polka dots
Alota 77: shaped card
CRAFT 142: no designer paper
Annabelle: say it with background stamps
