Congratulations New Baby

Hi readers! TGIF! I hope you’ve had a great week! Is it just me or did this past week go very quickly? I’m pleased as always to welcome the lovely Lucy Abrams back to our blog as a guest. She made this adorable Congratulations card for new parents! For a fun twist, you could switch out the pink polka dot paper for blue if the card was for a baby boy!

Flamingo Baby 2 for SSS by Lucy Abrams

Hello. Today I am sharing a new baby card that I created with a brand new Clearly Besotted stamp set called Looking Up. This set has a Father’s Day theme, but I thought the little flamingo in the set would look adorable on a new baby card too. I combined it with a cool sentiment from Simon’s Congratulations stamp set, lovely softly stripy paper from Dear Lizzy’s Fine and Dandy pad, and Lawn Fawn polka dot paper. For some sparkle and texture, I added pink sequins and a baker’s twine bow. Thanks so much for joining me, I hope you have a lovely day.

  1. OMG….too cute!!!!!! I love flamingos!!! Just bought some pj’s for my 2 year old great-granddaughter with flamingos!!! Very nice!!! Thanks!!

  2. too cute. What new parents wouldn’t love getting this card to welcome their little girl….. Or boy, if done in blues, or greens or yellows…

  3. This is so adorable! I love the way the flamingo is such a perfect stand-in for the stork! :) And the ease of switching the colors for either sex. The dotted paper is just so sweet for baby!

  4. The cute, goofy stork made me smile. Love the way you showcased it with the pink polka dots. Love the card!

  5. This is darling! I love the font of the sentiment too. Very pretty pink and the polka dots are perfect.

  6. How cute is that card ? I hope that my stamp collect grows enough to have sentiments for Welcome Baby cards like this. At the moment I am solely focusing on Birthday cards as everyday is someones birthday so Birthday cards are needed more often.
