A Sweet (Sugarplum) Baby Girl

I'm a great aunt!  Yes, my nephew just had his first baby, my first grand-niece!  We are all celebrating.  

I pulled out an oldie but goodie set (and still available!) and played with Something for Baby and the matching Baby's First Framelits dies.  I chose a pallet of Sweet Sugarplum and a number of pinks...because, of course, this is a girl!

A fairly simple card, but in order to make all the images fit, I had to make it oversized--5-1/2" x 5-1/2".  The base is Sweet Sugarplum, with a layer of Whisper White.  Next comes some Sweet Sugarplum DSP from the In Colors Designer Series Paper Stack.  Then came the fun:

Each stamp was stamped and cut out:  the onesie with Sweet Sugarplum; the stacking toy was inked with Stampin' Write markers in Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron; the booties stamped with Pink Pirouette, and the bib with Peekaboo Peach.  The sentiment is from the "vintage" A Dozen Thoughts, stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.

The layers under the stamped images were cut with Whisper White card stock, using a bunch of dies I purchased at a scrapbook expo last week. They are actually nesting rectangles, but I shortened the length, width or both depending on what I needed.  Then I layered them on Pink Pirouette, except for the sentiment box--that's on Rich Razzleberry for a little contrast.

And of course this card must have a matching envelope, right?  The Envelope Punch Board became my best friend, along with some more of the designer series paper.

Congrats to Dan and Talia, and welcome little Peri!
