Little Baby = Big News!

OMG!  Do I love little babies!  I'm not having anymore (one and done!), but Julian's teacher is, and we're so excited for her!  She's a newlywed and this is her and her husband's first child, so this little baby is a BIG deal!

What is even more of a big deal is that the teachers threw her a surprise baby shower during school in her classroom, and NOT ONE of the kids spilled the beans and spoiled the surprise!  We're talking 1st and 2nd graders, and they all kept it to themselves for weeks.  That's amazing, right?!

Since I rarely shop for gifts, we sent along this beautiful card and a gift card.   

I CASE'd my design from ME!  I made my Welcome Baby Card way back in September 2013, but I've been dying to make more.  This time, I was FINALLY able to use my Zoo Babies and Big News stamp sets.

I decided on Crushed Curry, So Saffron and Basic Gray for my color scheme since I was going to be heat embossing.  I wanted to make sure that my giraffe showed through the vellum, so I heat embossed it using Crushed Curry embossing powder.

{The patterned paper that the giraffe is on is retired, but it was so perfect, I had to use it.  It's from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper that we all could not get enough of during its heyday.} 

And because my black ink kept smearing on the vellum (twice, mind you), I finally decided to heat emboss my sentiment too.  

This card is so much fun, and I think this is my go-to design for baby cards until another little one comes along.  The embossing folder, the zoo baby animals and sentiment are so perfect together.  I hope you think so too.

You will find all of the current products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item.
