Foxy Baby

I am well past the time of my life when my friends were having babies and I am fast approaching the time when my generation is welcoming grandchildren. My boss was recently blessed with her first grand-daughter and I realized (gasp!) that I had no suitable stamp sets for a baby congratulations card. A trip to my sister's house conveniently solved that problem. I borrowed her Fox & Friends set to make this card which I gave to my boss along with a hand-knitted baby blanket. I hope grand-mother, mother, and baby will enjoy it. I will definitely be adding this set to my next order.

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • Use card sketches to jump start your creativity! This card is loosely based on the Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch 330.
  • Punches are your friend. Use them to make quick embellishments to match your color scheme.
  • Pair a girly color with nice neutrals for a feminine but not "over the top" look. I love the look of the linen thread with crumb cake cardstock. If I had used a pink ribbon, it would have changed the tone of the card completely!
