Houndstooth Baby Girl Card


Today I made a baby card at my husband's request.  Yes, I said it.  At my husbands request.  He has only asked me one other time to make a card, so I was pretty excited this time, and this one was a baby card!  I sent him back and forth a few times to find out the sex of the baby and when he needed the card for the office shower, but once I got the info I needed, I knew exactly which set I wanted to use.  I just got the Houndstooth background stamp from Papertrey Ink and thought it would make an adorable baby card stamped in pink.  I have the elephant Click Simple template converted to a file I can resize on my cricut, so I resized it to fit on a Mat Stack #1 diecut.  I also got to use a Layerz Mat Stack diecut to make a beautiful pink and houndstooth focal point layer.  Also used on this card was a cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, a double ended banner a sentiment from Baby Button Bits and some pearls for the elephants eyes and cascading out of her trunk.  I love the little elephant ear stamped with the houndstooth pattern.  I only hope my husband doesn't lose this before the shower next week.  I wouldn't put it past him to run out to Hallmark and replace it with something store bought!

Wow. This card is just too cute. I never would have thought to use houndstooth for a baby card, but your card is pure genius. Love the soft pink, the embossing, and, of course, the pearls. I guess I'm gushing because I love everything about it. And how sweet that your husband will be bringing it into work. He will be smothered in compliments for you.

Oh, this is so adorable, Cathy!! I LOVE it! The houndstooth is perfect and the pearl accents are such a great touch. Did you find the Houndstooth easy to stamp?

This is really adorable, Cathy. Your houndstooth elephant with your pearl bubbles is such a great and creative design. Love it!
