Baby Shower Gift Set

Hi Everyone,

Last night I went to a friend's baby shower... The new arrival will be here soon and I was a little stumped as to what to buy or make for her as we don't know whether to expect a boy or a girl. So I thought back to when I had my 2 girls (2006 & 2008) and decided some little cards would be handy as birth announcements or thank you cards.

So I made a set of 10 cards, co-ordinating envelopes and a box for it all to go in. This is the card:

It was based on a card from my sideline Andrea, however I changed it around a bit to suit the stamps I have. The box looked the same as the card but just a little bigger.

Materials Used:
Stamp Set: Forest Friends (retired) & Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess Level 1 set)
Cardstock/ Ink Colours:  Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Brocade Blue (soon to retire!)
White Taffeta Ribbon
Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Word Window, Scallop Square & 1 1/4" punches
Big Shot & Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Brocade Blue (soon to retire) Stampin' Write Marker - used to ink up the sentiment stamp as there's actually more words in this stamp.

Thanks for looking,
