Hello Love Baby Shower Card + Gift Bag (Part Two)

Baby Shower Keepsake Gift Bag + Baby Card | Stampingville #papercrafts #babyshower #StampinUp

If you dropped by yesterday, (hi again and welcome back!) you already got to see the keepsake gift bag I created for a baby shower. Today is part two of that post with attention on the baby shower card.

The card and gift bag are a coordinated set, but I mixed it up a little for variety when creating the card.

Stampin' Details:
  • The heart patterned paper from the Lullaby Designer Series Paper collection was the obvious choice for the background layer. 
  • The mommy-to-be is a girly-girl and also loves anything vintage. The Tea Lace Paper Doily was sponged with Early Espresso ink to give it a vintage distressed look. It looks a little lighter in person than the photos depict. (Baked Brown Sugar was my first choice, but it didn't produce the look I was after. I love experimenting, don't you?!)

  • The focal image was cropped using a 2-1/2" Circle Punch - the perfect size for the doily center.
  • The sentiment is placed strategically over the words within the cloud to create a card directed to mommy and daddy.
  • To mimic the gift bag, tiny hearts punched from cardstock were layered over the stamped heart images.
  • I used a flax/cotton natural ribbon (retired Stampin' Up!) for both the bag and card, but Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon would have worked very well in its place.

  • The envelope got special attention too, with stamped hearts in the upper corner and a strip of patterned paper with heart cut-outs across the bottom of the envelope.
  • The In Color mini-clothespin was too cute to pass up on this project. The color, although not exact, coordinated perfectly with the Crisp Cantaloupe ink and patterned paper. (Of course it did!)
I hope you've enjoyed a look at my baby shower card and keepsake gift bag. I had a lot of fun creating them and I know they were appreciated. I don't do this type of project often, but for a special occasion or someone special I like to do more than just a handmade card. Do you decorate gift bags or grab the cutest one at the store?
