CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop and CDS Digi Release Day!

Hello everyone!

Today's card is a double duty beauty! :)

Now, for the CardMaker hop, the theme is "Little Lullaby's". We were asked to create a card for a baby.
I wanted to use my pre-colored Butterfly Bunny digi that is releasing today so I took a little artistic licence and made a different sentiment then what comes with the stamp (this is something anyone can do in Word or any photo editing program).  I think the "Welcome Little One" sentiment makes this image work very well for a baby card. ;)

I printed 2 images then popped part of it with Helmar ZapDots to give it some added interest and dimension.
I created the floral designer paper to match the image and it is included in the "Butterfly Bunny" digi set.

The cardstock is Brilliant White and Herbal Garden Medium both from Discount Card Stock.
I used some pretty seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The white pearls are from Want2Scrap and it was all put together with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue.

This is what my new pre-colored Butterfly Bunny digi set looks like.
It is available now from Clear Dollar Stamps for just $3.50 and it comes with the colored version, (2) digi papers, the sentiment plus a line art version in case you would like to color it yourself.

Make sure and visit the rest of the CardMaker blog design team. I am sure they have some adorable baby cards to share with you!
