Super cute baby card:)

My husbands nephew (I guess mine too, though he's only a couple years younger than me) and his wife are having their baby shower today in celebration of the upcoming arrival of their first child, a girl they will name Brooklyn. It's a Halloween baby shower, which is a little different, but I decided to make my card pure baby, minus any Halloween. I hope they like it. I saw a sample of a card on a demo forum by Stephanie Sullivan, and she got the baby punch idea from Ellen Kemper. So, there's plenty of credit to go around for the idea for this precious baby! I chose a color palette of Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Pink Pirouette. It's soft, yet modern and feminine and works well for this card, I hope;) I ran some Pink cardstock through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder to get some texture, then punched 3/4" circles from that and adhered to the base. I will list all supplies below, as well as a separate supply list for just creating the baby. One you have the pieces, it's obvious how to put it together. It's not often I get to make baby cards, so I had a lot of fun with this one!

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes (inked with marker, each word one at a time stacked)
Ink: Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White cardstock and Bella Rose DSP (retired)
Tools: Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Crop O Dile, 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" Circle punches, Designer Label punch, Word Window and Heart to Heart punch.
Accessories: Sheer Pink ribbon, So Saffron Grosgrain, Styled Silver HPH, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, SNAIL, Tombow Multi Adhesive, Signo Gel Pen

Baby Punches:
Body = 1 1/4" Circle
Diaper = 1 1/4" Circle (put back in punch and a partial circle taken out of one side
Leg = Heart to Heart punch
Arm = Word Window Punch (put back in half length and repunched, OR cut in half, hiding cut)
Hair = 1/2" Circle punch, with 1/4" punched on one side
Eyes = 1/4" Circle x 2...colored on bottom half with Chocolate Chip marker
Cheeks = Rounded pencil eraser dipped in ink pad
Pacifier = Crop O Dile hole on CS, overpunched with 1/4" circle for paci handle, punched piece from Crop O Dile punch is paci.

* Sponging lightly around each body piece before adhering adds depth to the finished baby.

Happy Stampin' and Happy Halloween everyone!
