Baby Congrats

Hi Everyone!

I have a sweet post today; one in which I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried a collage style card.
 I know when I start back to work next month, there will be several teachers who will be expecting, so I decided to build my stash of baby cards.

My bear was colored with Copics; this sweetie is from the Valentine Critters Stamp Set, but does great double duty as a baby card image. I fussy cut the bear out; to help the bear stand out more, I mounted the bear image on a bear shaped mat that I fussy cut out, then layered it on a tag die cut (Kaiser Craft), floral die cut (Glitz Designs), and cheese cloth.  I die cut two leaves using the Thankful Blooms Die Set; I cut them from white card stock and colored them with Copics, mimicking the leaves in the floral die cut.
The base of the card was stamped with the Delightfully Delicate Background Stamp.  I added a scalloped edge using the Scallop Border Dies.  Of course, there is nothing like a seam binding bow to finish off what turned out to be a very girly baby card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today; have a blessed week!
