Baby Moon, Baby Girl Card

I am going to be in need of a girl baby shower card so I thought I would try to get a jump on things this year and be prepared.  I am going to make a pair of cute baby booties (I'll show you them when I finish them) and go shopping for something else.  But I wanted to make a card and this is what I came up with.

I used the "Baby Moon" set.  I have not played with it yet and thought I'd better.  I think this is the first baby set I've bought in a long time.  I don't usually make baby cards, but that doesn't mean that people don't shop for them.  So I plan to make some for the fall craft fairs.  

This card was very easy to make and I wish I would have "assembly lined" it.  Cutting all the pieces at the same time. But I didn't know where I was going with the image before I started.  But it was simple enough so I can make a few more easily.  The paper is still sitting out (like that surprises you!!! LOL), and of course, the stamp set is not put away!!!  That's SO me!

I used Basic Black cardstock for the base, Whisper White cardstock for the top of the front and the image.  And I used Pink Pirouette decorative paper from the 12" x 12" stack.  My stack is getting thinner but it's still pretty full.  I LOVE those stacks but I do need to use them more.  I cut my decorative paper piece 3" x  4".

This set has stars in it, so I used Daffodil Delight and stamped some stars on the top panel.  The words are also in the set and I stamped them using black Memento ink. The top panel was cut 2-1/4" x 4".  It was set in place right on top of the Basic Black card base.  

I stamped and colored in the baby. I used a 2" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock and a 2-1/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock for the layer.  

I tied a ribbon around the focal panel.  I used some retired ribbon.  I thought I should start using it up, you demonstrators who read my blog will just substitute it with current ribbon.  I substitute ribbon all the time because I don't have it.  And after giving it some thought, I figured that using retired ribbon is about the same thing, it will be replace by current or other ribbon by someone else that does not have the same product used in photos!  SO on that note, I will be using some of my retired ribbons now and then.  Once the ribbon was tied on, I added Dimensionals to the back and set the panel in place.  That was it.  Super easy, super quick and pretty darn cute!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
