Baby Animals for Baby People

Hello, hello!  I know, three posts in just over a week, you probably don’t know what to do with yourself right now 😛  I certainly know the feeling!  Wedding stationery orders come in waves, and recently the tide has been in the outward phase.  The great thing about that is I get time to make stuff just for fun!  It’s quite refreshing to let my creativity go a bit.

Today’s card will hopefully make you go “awwww.”  When I finished, I sat staring at it and smiling for a good while before carefully packing it up to send to my dear friend who requested the special order.  Even Joel smiled and told me several times how adorable it was 🙂  See what you think:

I adore baby cards.  Soft colors, the cutest little animal ambassadors, buttons, banners…it doesn’t get any better!  This card started with the baby elephant.  I pulled out some matching papers and embellishments (the corners, buttons, and orange and green paper buttons were all in a set with the elephant, so they match perfectly!) and just started trying random combinations.  Finally, I settled on a basic design, but something just wasn’t quite right.  I realized that the white paper was just too stark, so I grabbed a little star stamp and got to work!  Much better!

I always like to make the inside of the card match, or at least coordinate with the front.  Here’s what this one looks like:

I lined the envelope with the orange gingham paper, et voila!  Pretty thrilled.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a lovely day!
