Goodbye Baby Steps

Today I thought I would share cards made with the retiring stamp set Baby Steps. It was definitely my go to baby set this year because those elephants are too cute!

Here's the baby boy version
And the baby girl version
I really wanted the attention to be on the image so I didn't even use any designer paper. For the same reason, I kept the embellishments to a minimum. I still had to stick to quite a few layers though! I substituted the bow for a button in the second because I just couldn't get the 5/8" satin ribbon to make a bow that was both small enough for the space and pretty!

Oh my goodness, I am completely inspired to make a baby card today! These are so sweet! I love that stamp and your clean design. The two different embellishments give such different looks, too. Love it!
