Good Morning

Today I am posting three cards, they are the same card in different colors, I created this card for my first cousin who had a baby boy in March. The "recipe" is the same in all three cards just different colors. I used a light blue Bazzill cardstock for the base of the card, the rest of the paper is a nice heavy white cardstock that I bought in bulk at a stamping store in Marietta GA when Gene and I were on a business trip. The bottom layer of white is punched with the Martha Stewart Deco shell border punch and then the next layer was run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot Embossing folder. The sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die and says "Time to Celebrate" (at the time that was the only appropriate sentiment I had, I have since rectified that situation LOL). The baby (stamped image) is a Close to My Heart stamp, actually a Christmas set, "Let Us Adore Him" (B1260) and it is actually baby Jesus. I stamped him using Versamark clear embossing ink and I embossed it with Zing Embossing Powder. I then cut him out and matted it on the same blue as the card base. I used some sheer white ribbon in my stash to finish off the card. I loved the way it turned out and it is a fairly simple card. I liked this card so much I made a pink one and a yellow one as well. I hope y'all like it too. Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think! Thanks so much.
(I wanted to let you know, if you scroll down to the "Let us Adore Him" post, you can see where I used this same stamp on a Christmas card) I love having stamps that are multi use

OMG Tammy! This is absolutely gorgeous! Your cousin will be thrilled. Those fancy tags Spellbinders are just lovely. The whole design is beautiful, may have to try something like this. Great idea on the baby Jesus!
