Welcome Baby Card

This is the second of two cards I made for two friends who we threw a joint surprise baby shower for. For this card, we didn't know the sex of the baby so I tried to go with something gender neutral - although in the end I couldn't resist using this pretty flowers so it essentially ended up quite feminine. I uses Fresh Cut Florals stamps and dies from Wplu9 - I absolutely adore these stamps and from the moment I saw them used on Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel I knew I had to have them. It was searching for them on-line that led me to Make The Day Special, an awesome online store that sells US stamps, dies, inks and paper pads in the UK. I used various inks from Stampin' Up and Hero Arts including Green Hills, Pistachio Pudding, Gumball Green, Passion Flower, Soft Lilac, Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crushed curry and Daffodil Delight. The adorable duck is from a Stampin' Up set called Storybook Friends. I stamped him with smoky slate ink to complete the soft look I was going for and coloured the beak and feet with a Crushed Curry Stampin' Up marker. The sentiment is from Handwritten Borders by Simon Says Stamp and was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto a strip of matching cardstock.
