WHOO Loves You Baby?

My friend Julia is about to pop out her first baby girl. I was SO excited for her when I found out. Even more excited when I found out I got to be pregnant for a few months with her! She is going to have what I know is going to be an ADORABLE princess. For her baby shower, I made her a picture to hang in the nursery as well as a simple, matching card. Enjoy!

Ok, first up is the card. I used the following supplies:

Cardstock - Hot Pink, Light Pink, Dark Pink, Metallic Pink, and Orange
Orange Ribbon
Cricut Cartridges - Create-a-Critter and Celebrations
CTMH Stamp -
Black Ink

I cut the card and enevelope using the Celebrations cartridge with my Expression at 10 inches, and the Owl from the Create-a-Critter cartridge at 3 inches.

Here is the picture I made to hang in her nursery. I used the following supplies:

2 12x12 pattern cordinated papers
Cardstock - White, Green, Black, Dark Pink, Light Pink, Orange
Cricut Cartridges - Storybook and Create-a-Critter
Shadow Box

I cut the white cardstock with my paper cutter so that I had a 12x2.25 strip. I cut one of the cordinated papers so that I had a 12x2 strip. I cut the owl from Create-a-Critter with my Expression at 9 inches. I cut the letters (1 set of regular and 1 set of black) from Storybook with my Expression at 1.5 inches.
