Baby it's Christmastime!

I know these aren't really traditional baby colors, but I have to admit, I'm have a hard time using soft pastel colors. I needed to stock up on baby cards, so I thought, why can't baby cards be in Christmassy- red gingham? No harm in that, right? I did pair the red gingham (Daisy D's Paisley Sugarplum) up with some pastel-polka dot paper (Butterfly Dot Multi paper) to throw some soft baby colors into the mix. I've used a variety of stamps here, the little car, "God's Grace" sentiment & the safety pin are all from the Crafty Secrets "Baby Boy" stamp set.

The cute little carriage is a Stampin Up stamp, from the "Something to Celebrate" set. Miracle of all creation sentiment is from SU's "That's Nice" stamp set. The pins are colored in with a Sakura gelly roll clear glitter pen, to make them look shiny and pin-like. Sorry, not much else to say tonite. Hope everyone is having a good week and getting some stamping time in!

I think the color and pattern scheme works perfectly! Kind of retro baby. The safety pin stamps look very cute the way they're positioned.

Hello,
Cute baby cards. They only seem Christmasy because that is the season. If you were to make these cute cards any other time of year, no one would associate them with Christmas. They are adorable.
I wanted to let you know of my work with Copics please check it out here: http://lyricalstamper.blogspot.com/
So THANK YOU!
Take care,
ML

thanks for posting these - i am going to a baby scrapbook shower tomorrow night - it's my job to make a few pages for the new mommy - plus she requested something to keep track of all the firsts....she doesn't know what she's having and the pastel color palette wasn't very inspiring to me!
