Baby Shower Card For My Sweet Friend Amy V.

My sweet friend Amy is having her baby shower this Saturday so I made this card for her! They don't know what they're having yet (girl or boy) so I created this card with pink, green, brown, and yellow so it would be a 'neutral' card! Although it definitely looks more girly to me since I think they're having a girl! hahaha! My card layout is based upon Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge! I made mine a square card since I needed more room to add an envelope which was the challenge at Everything But the Kitchen Sink! I really like how it turned out with the butterflies fluttering out of the envelope!
My envelope was die cut using the Stampin' Up! Scallop Envelope die! I cut it out of Chocolate Chip DSP and since it's double-sided paper, you can see both patterns since the envelope is left open! The 'for your shower' sentiment is stamped from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set!
The letters the spelt out 'baby' were cut out using my Big Shot and the Billboard alphabet die! The Beautiful Wings Embosslits die is still available for purchase from the Occasions Mini Catalog! This die will also be featured in the new Idea Book & Catalog which comes out July 1st!

  1. Super cute Kari! I love all the embellishments in each square. A card needs to be touched, not just read! The butterflies flying out of the envelope are fun. Your friend is going to LOVE it!

  2. SO pretty! I love the colors! Thanks for playing the Kitchen Sink challenge!

  3. This is just so sweet!! Thanks so much for playing along with EbtKS!

  4. That is so sweet! Thanks for playing along with us!

  5. Now that's a cool idea, what a way to create dimension. Is there a way to use this die without getting four or five butterflies of the same color? Or do you stock pile them for later use?

  6. So cute! I love the colors! Thanks for playing with us in the EBTKS challenge! :)
