Congrats Mom & Dad (Baby Shower Card)

Hello, Hello all my crafty friends, I hope you all have had a wonderful Wednesday!!! It feels like I haven't posted in forever.. Well, I have had an awesome day playing with my newest Cricut cartridge "Baby Steps".. I am so in love with this cart, and I am warning you now you will be seeing a lot of projects using this cart from me..

Okay, back to my project I'm wanting to share with all of you today.. My brother and sister in-law are expecting and they're having a shower this weekend.. So, I have created a card for them.. I did something a little different on this card.. I love stair step cards and using transparencies for card so I combined my to loves and this is what was born..In the second picture you can see the little step in the front of the card.. I really like how it turned out and I will be making more in the future :0)


To create this card I used:

*Baby Steps(flower cloths line)
*Plantin SchoolBook (grass)
*Mother and Daughter Stamps ( Joy’s Life product page )
*Transparency, Pattern Paper & Card Stock (the Paper Studio)
*Ink
*Polka Dot Brads
*Black Marker
*White Pen
*Stickles
