Now the inside is exposed revealing a sweet sentiment also in vellum. As you can see I chose to put the bow on this side. I countered the bow with a cute little frog in the bottom right corner. It is from a micropunch from Creative Memories.

A Swinging Baby Card
I would like to share this baby shower card I made for a friend. I was inspired by Cheryl at Nana's Creative Space in which she had made several swing cards. She directed me to Angela at Simple Creations Paper Crafts who had a video on how to make a swing card. The process is fairly simple and I think the fold is super cute. The parents do not know whether the baby is a boy or a girl so I incorporated all colors into the card. I cut the chick from the Create a Critter cart at 2 1/4". The "Welcome little one" is a vellum piece I found in my sticker binder. I used the Crop-a-dile to puch the holes for the flowers brads and I embossed the yellow pieces with the Swiss Dots folder and my Cuttlebug. As the card begins to open you can see the center section begin to swing. I wanted to put a bow on the chick's head with a little bling but restrained myself to stay gender neutral.
