SC321 Baby Animal Squares

As soon as I saw the sketch SC321 last week, I knew I wanted to make a baby card using the retired Wild About You set using the squares like in this card by Miss Boo.
I love the way this card turned out. It will definitely have to be a card that I only give to someone in person as there is way too much dimension to it for mailing. The squares themselves, the elephant ear, lion's mane and lion's face are all raised up on dimensionals (the animal parts were cut using my paper snips - the best scissors ever for detailed cutting).

The "one" looks crooked in the photo for some reason but it doesn't in real life - I made sure by using my stamp-a-ma-jig to keep the words straight! This is one of my favourite "word" type sets in the catalogue because it's so versatile since you can make it say whatever you want!

I'll probably end up recreating this card using other paper and maybe other animal stamps (like fox & friends or animal stories) because I still need a few more baby cards over the next couple months!

Stamps: SU Wild About You (retired), Fabulous Phrases
Ink: SU bashful blue, pacific point
Paper: SU ww, pacific point, celebrations dp
Ribbon: SU 1/4" bashful blue grosgrain (retired)
Punches: SU 1 1/4" square, 1 3/8" square
Misc: SU dimensionals

This card is sooo cute! Wish I had kept that set, but I agree ... Fox & Friends will work too.

Love the "Sew Suite" blog design, too!

This is too cute! I always have trouble with baby cards, so if you don't mind I'd love to CASE it.
