Baby Girl

I've made this card for a friend at work who has welcomed a beautiful addition to his family...

It was quite a simple card to make actually, once the shape was made, it was embossed then prettied up with die cuts, job done :)
So, I hand cut the card base from pink card stock using a circle punch and scissors, then embossed the front of the card with my argyle embossing folder.
The scalloped edges were made using the same circle punch followed by a SU scalloped circle punch, then using the scalloped edge punch (also by SU) for the bottom of the belly band and the ends of the arms.
The belly band uses a darker pink card stock which has been embossed with my swiss dots folder.
'baby' was die cut using a word die by Clearly Besotted Stamps, and 'GIRL' cut using Die-namics, By The Letter dies.
I added a small punched heart to finish the card.

I'm entering this card at:
