Label Love "Cutest Baby Ever" Card

 

Label Love "Cutest Baby Ever" card

This Cutest Baby Ever card is the cutest card ever!!! Ok, my sweet neighbor and I were going on a walk in the cool spring air last night LATE and she looked at me with those starry eyes and said, can we make 5 cards?  Of course we can!!!  What a blast we had! By the way, she is hooked on cards. Tee Hee! My daughter's teacher had a baby yesterday (YAY!!) and I  needed a black and pink card since these were her chosen colors. I went for my favorite set for a quick card, Label Love and its coordinating punch, the artisan label punch. We also used Mosaic Madness and the coordinating mosaic punch. coordinating punches really makes simplicity look fabulous. Ask my friend Maeghan Arnold, though. I really struggled over this one using black and melon mambo card stock. I was struggling with the black for a baby card.  In the end, I LOVED it. It was the strawberry slush ruffle stretched trim that made the difference in the end.  And a few rhinestones always finishes it off nicely.  The card is beautiful, but my friend Maeghan who is 26 and fighting breast cancer and winning (YAHOO!) is even more beautiful. I'm not surprised that making cards has drawn us closer as friends.  Stampin' Up has a way of doing that with people.  Blessings to Maeghan!
