Hey Stampers! Is there a new little “star” coming into your world soon? Maybe a friend’s baby, maybe a grandchild? I’m so excited to share this adorable card made with the Sweet Baby stamp set and Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. While this card is for a baby boy, just stamp/color the baby image with Petal Pink and use Petal Pink Cardstock and you’ve got a baby girl card! The Soft Sea Foam circle works just fine for either, too!
Of course, you could easily slip a gift card into the opening instead of cash.
Twinkle Twinkle is one of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) packs that will be part of Stampin’ Up!’s July sale. During the entire month, buy 3, get one free of the DSP shown below.
You can mix and match with any of these papers, OR you can get 4 of the same one; it’s up to you!
I know a lot of you print off my projects and save, so I’ve included everything you need below to make this project. Don’t forget to set a reminder and bookmark this post so you can grab some DSP from my online store on July 1 and save some money, too!
