Animal Outing New Baby Card

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a baby card!  As I was going through my new stuff today, I saw my Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam card stock next to each other and thought they looked really pretty together.  Then I saw my Animal Outing stamp set, and this is what came to mind.  Green is my favorite color, and I love these two shades together for babies!

The rhino was colored with light and dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, the little bird was colored with light and dark Bermuda Bay ones, and the rhino’s horn was colored with the Ivory marker.  I framed him with Stitched Shapes Framelits, and layered him with a large scalloped circle cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.

The sentiment is actually two different stamps from the Animal Outing set.  I placed them both on the same block and stamped them together, but even though I put them as close together as I could, there was more space between the two words than I would have liked.  Instead of redoing it, I pulled out my Pick a Pennant set and stamped the tiny heart in between them in Blushing Bride ink.  It was the perfect size and perfect way to fill that extra bit of space!  I also went over the heart with Clear Wink of Stella for just a bit of shimmer (though it’s hard to see from the pics.)
