Precious Baby

 My cousin and his wife are having their first baby!!  She had a miscarriage a year or two ago, so this is very exciting and we are all so happy for them.  They are having a couple's baby shower this week far away from where I live, so I can't go, but I made them this adorable little card to welcome their precious little gift!

The stitched heart was in my bits and pieces stash and the white banner is a piece left over from cutting out the striped cover plate.  I die cut 4 of the cover plates out of white card stock and one out of the star paper.  I adhered all the white pieces together before sandwiching a sheet of acetate between the stack of white die cuts and the green one.  I added shimmery clear seed beads into each of the "wells" before adhering everything to a coordinating green card base.  I stamped and colored the sweet little bears and finished everything off with some tiny pink stamped hearts.

Stamps: MFT "Bear Hugs" and "Essential Sentiments"; Verve "To the Moon" little hearts
Dies: MFT "Bold Stripes" cover plate and "Stitched Heart STAX"
