Paper Craft Crew #246

It was so fun creating this Welcome Baby card....though a bit of a challenge.  In the rebuild of my craft room.....I simply do not have baby stuff.  No cutesy papers and my stamps are limited.  In fact, you are looking at the only baby stamp I currently own!  I was in need of a baby card....and no way was I buying a store card!  I did recently acquire this super cute giraffe die cut...which is the basis of my card.  Who can resist the cute giraffe!  My cardstock seemed a little plain, so I randomly stamped stars in a coordinating ink.  I love the end result.  I created my card based on the sketch challenge this week at Paper Craft Crew.

While being short on can easily make any sentiment you would like by using a Word processing program.  I located a cute sentiment, changed it up a bit and printed from my computer.  I then die cut the sentiment and layered onto the inside of my card.

Design Tip-If you need to create a custom sentiment for your your Word Processing program.  Insert a text box and size to the inside of your card.  You can then select various fonts and sizes to create your custom sentiment. By adding a text box, you know exactly how the finished sentiment will look on the inside of your card.
