Balloon Animals goes Baby-themed!

Balloon animals aren't only for birthdays!!!  Here, I used the elephant balloon animal to make these cute little baby cards. We've got a few friends who are expecting this spring, so I can't wait to send these out once their new bundles arrive!
The glacier version is a bit more "masculine" with the clean edges and the mini staples holding the twine in place.  The pink version is a bit more delicate with the scalloped edge and no staples (I just used liquid glass to hold the twine in place).  I love how the Georgie Patterned Paper and Whisper Paper Fundamentals create such dimension in this card. 
The sentiment stamp can be found in the sets accompanying the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  This set is an invaluable tool for any cardmaker.  There seems to be a stamp for every occasion!  The sentiment here is actually two different stamps, so you can change out what you are congratulating the recipient for.

Remember, this stamp set is only available during the month of February.  It can be purchased for $17.95, or ONLY $5 with any $50 purchase.  Contact me to order yours today!
