Neutral Baby Card

Grant reminded me Thursday night that I needed to make a neutral baby card for him to take for a coworker on Friday so this is what I came up with. It feels like I'm always making baby cards these days - between Grants and my coworkers there are 9 expected or already delivered babies! This card actually came together pretty quick. Once Grant picked which sentiment he wanted on it, I had an idea in mind for the design and just had to make it come together. It's difficult to tell from the photo but the sentiment panel is raised up on dimensionals, then the elephant is raised up even further. Sorry the photos not great but I took it late at night!

The only non SU part of this card is the little white bow fed through the button - it is leftover embroidery thread from the family Christmas stockings that I made.

Stamps: SU animal stories, Full of life
Ink: SU so saffron, certainly celery
Paper: SU ww, so saffron, certainly celery, spring fling dp (retired)
Ribbon: SU 5/8" so saffron grosgrain
Button: SU certainly celery (from sherbert package)
Misc: Embroidery thread, dimensionals
