Welcome Baby card by designer Patty Folchert

Who can resist a baby elephant stamp set? Not me, I found it to be adorable and dived right into making a welcome baby card. This time I grabbed one of the new Hampton Art watercolor tags for the sentiment, new wood stamps and some Summer Red Raspberry Soup allowed me to keep it gender neutral.

Welcome Baby card by Patty Folchert

This card is very simple in design, I began with a plain white card base. I stamped the sentiment in navy ink onto one of the beautiful new watercolor tags as shown.

Next I grabbed the bubbles paper and I stamped the Mama and baby elephant design in navy ink three times to create a border strip.

Then I added the yellow diagonal stripe paper from the same Summer Red Raspberry Soup collection as shown.

Then I adhered the border strip to that paper as pictured. Using my sewing machine I stitched the three separate rows as shown in white thread. The last step was to tie the tag bow and attach it to the card with 3d foam dots.

The card is so simple, yet a very sweet baby card. I am in love with all of the new Hampton products from the last release; they are available for purchase at your favorite retailers and online stores now.

Sweet Baby Parade,
Patty Folchert
