Recently I found out someone I know is expecting her first baby. They are waiting awhile to tell everyone but I figured it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and make a BABY Card. I'll probably hold out until after the first doctor appointment to mail the card but it's ready to go.

Since it's way to early to know what gender the baby is, I used many pastel baby colors. The plaid paper by Paper Pizzazz has a very small yellow line running through it. You can see it down the middle of the elephant. The pink and blue polka dots are retired dsp by Stampin' Up! I embossed the yellow cardstock with an argyle embossing folder and used a scalloped edgelit die for detail. The scalloped circle was cut with my Cricut machine and I fussy-cut Emery elephant by Verve Stamps for the focal image. To add the sentiment I used a stamp set by Fiskars called New Baby and the last detail was three candy dots.

My BABY Card is entered into the following challenges:
