Christmas Babies

A friend at church asked me if I could make some Christmas cards for 3 baby girls in her life.  So I started going through all my Christmas stamps to see what inspired me as cute for baby girls!

My card for 3 year old Chloe was inspired by the Cas-ology Cue Card: Ribbon challenge.
I just love this little gingerbread girl from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy - one of the first Waltzingmouse stamp sets.  I stamped her in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, colored her with a Copic and added a little gingham ribbon bow to the top of her outfit..  The sentiment is from the same set.  I stamped Chloe using the Victorian Alphabet and drew the top and bottom framing lines using a Micron Pen.

Here's what I stamped on the inside of Chloe's card.  I just love this 'You're Yummy' sentiment as I find most babies to be quite yummy!
My next cards - for Emma and Ava celebrating their FIRST Christmas -  are the same, as they are going to different families.  My design was inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge which is a sketch.
I used three Waltzingmouse Sets on this card - Twas the Night Before Christmas, Around Christmastime, and Victorian Alphabet.  I sponged the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I popped the Santa circle up on foam dots.  The names are stamped on vellum attached with sparkle brads.

Here's what I stamped on the inside of these cards.  Stamps from Twas the Night Before Christmas.
and here are the two together
I hope you'll stop by on Friday -  I'll be posting 4 lovely gift packaging ideas using templates from Creations by AR.

Simply stunning Julia! I love the vellum overlay with the soft pink, such an unusual Christmas colour but it works brilliantly.
Thanks again for supporting the Fanatics challenge :-D
