Yesterday was such a fun day because my daughters and I attended a baby shower for my nephew and niece in Marine City.  So that meant we visited with my younger sister and nieces and nephews while we were there.  The weather looked terrible (snowing) when we left my place, but by the time we got on the highway the sun was shining (yes, I was blessed again).

Anyway, I want to share with you my baby shower card and gift wrappings.  I have to admit the colors are not my favorite for "baby" cards/gifts -- but they do not know the gender of the baby and these are the colors they picked (Chocolate Chip and Sage).  The baby's maternal grandma uses Stampin' Up products in her crafts and did all the invitations, table decorations, and gifts for attendees using the same theme.  Even the games were Stampin' Up, which I had never played before and soooooooo cute!!!  I will save that for another post, but will definitely offer it to my clients.

I stayed with the Chocolate Chip and Sage theme for my card, etc.; used the Stampin' Up Pop-Up Look Here Big Shot Bigz XL and Scallop Circle Bigz Dies for the gift card; Nursery Necessities, Animal Stories, & discontinued Buggies and Booties (?) stamp sets; and Build A Bear Bigz Die for decoration.

Card Front -- Check out my first try at ruffles (I peeled my cardstock in half so it wasn't as thick & it gave me 2 layers of ruffle).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!


  1. Terrific Sandi great job and use of stampin up stuff. Not bad for last few days work. It all makes for a great display and all comes together nicely wish I could of been there. I just love those bib cards have not made one yet but need to add it to my list.

  2. What a wonderful gift. Love the bib card, you did a fantastic job.

  3. great job, sis. Of course it looks so much better IRL. I love the colors for a baby and love the idea that Jen & Cody are keeping their choice of name a secret (along with not finding out the sex). It was a very FUN afternoon and always a joy to see Pam's kids and her other family. TFS
