The woodgrain frame is what caught my eye in this stamp set.  I thought ....why not use that "you're special" wording to create a baby card! J

Baby Card using 2 CTMH Cricut Cartridges! 

I chose to use a card base from our Artfully Sent Cricut collection.  I liked the wording at the bottom of the card, but knew I didn't need the scroll.  

So - I tried my hand at Design Space and took away the scrolls for this card design. Now...the scrolls were gone & I created my card design using our Wishes card how-to-book pattern called "Gallery".   

I used our Chalk It Up paper Collection for the background, and cut the ADORABLE giraffe from our Artbooking Cricut cartridge. He is cut from flaxen & sorbet cardstock colors.  

Did you notice the lagoon colored strip of paper?  I used our BEAUTIFUL paper fundamentals...this picture shows the glossy design that is pre-printed on this cardstock. 


Here is the list of products I used on this card in case you'd like to create one of your own!  J
