Baby Gift

My husband's co-worker's wife (got that?) just had a baby very early this morning.  It has been a rough pregnancy for her, so we are all glad both mom and Kodie Miracle are doing well.  I made a card and gift to welcome the new little one.

This is a 5x7 card.  The front is covered in pink cardstock by Paper Reflections.  The patterned paper is from The Glitter Stack by DCWV and is cut at 4-1/4x6-1/4".  The white paper is from DCWV's The Glitter Cardstock Stack and is cut at 2x7".  The letters are cut using the Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge at 1-1/4" on cocoa cardstock by Close To My Heart.  The ribbon is 3/8" cocoa grosgrain by Close To My Heart.  All the cardstock edges are inked with Close To My Heart's cocoa inkpad.  Finally, I accented the letters with cinnamon stickles by Ranger.


On the inside, I put a piece of 1x7" cocoa cardstock at the bottom of the card.  I cut the pink cardstock at 5x7 and then punched the bottom with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The sentiment is a Close To My Heart stamp from the Baby Miracles set.

Finally, here is the gift.  I had made this many months ago, for no one in particular at that time.  When we found out they were having a girl, I knew this would be the perfect gift.  It is knit on the diagonal with a self-striping yarn by Bernat called Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes.
