Baby Boy and Girl Cards

A good friend just became the proud grandmother of her first granddaughter, and another friend is expecting her grandson to arrive sometime next week.  So, I made two of the same card, just changing the colors to make one for a girl, and one for a boy. I have seen a lot of cards made using the scallop circle punch to make a bib, and I think it is a really cute idea for baby cards.

The bibs on both cards were made using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle and the 1 3/8" Circle.  I punched the curved opening using my 1" Circle punch, and added brads and Baker's Twine.  You can use any of your favorite baby stamps for the image on the bib, and my little duck is from the Baby Bundle Stamp Set.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink #10059, Wisteria Wonder #122922. Daffodil Delight #119683, Bashful Blue #105120, Whisper White #100730

Stamp Sets:  Baby Bundle #118525 wood or #120576 clear, Friendly Phrases #126149 wood or #126151 clear
Ink:  Daffodil Delight #119667, Wisteria Wonder #122936, Bashful Blue #105209
Punches:  1 3/4" Scallop Circle #119854, 1 3/8" Circle #119860
