Baby Card - submitted to Cricut Magazine for 2011 Idea Book

I am at the age where many of my friends and cousins are having babies, so I'm constantly having to make cards for baby showers, welcome home baby, etc.  This is one of the more recent designs that people seem to love.  Some folks have already received this card or soon will :)

I love these inkadinkado stamps - so versatile

My goal is to use up some of my inventory this year, and this ribbon has been sitting around for quite some time!

Machine used:  Cricut Expression

The Paper Company - white paper
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - pumice stone
K&Company - Suze Ultman Designer Paper, Lion Sleeps
1/2 inch solid colored ribbon
embroidery floss
foam dots
inkadinkado - 98625 Scrapbook Sentimentals, clear stamps

Cricut cartridges and cuts

New Arrivalonesie - 5 inches
bottle, bottle-s: 1 inch
baby-s, shadow - 1 inch

Accent EssentialsAccnt1s - 5 inch
Accent27s - 1 inch, 1.25 inch

I then used the Stampin' Up! mat stack to create a zig zag stitching guide to add the embroidery floss.

I love when I can add a little stitching because it makes me feel like I'm cross-stitching on my papers :)
