Welcome Baby


You may be surprised to know that this was my original card for this week's CASology Cue Card, Wedding.

I planned to go with a shotgun wedding and use this baby card, but at the last minute, I lost my nerve and went with something a little more, well, traditional!

I call this one 'Google' baby (mostly because of the colours) and I think it's perfect for babies of parents who have grown up not remembering life before Google!

I made it for a friend who has a friend having a baby - they don't know the gender yet, so that's another plus to this primary-colour design.

I used MFT Monogram Alpha stamps (can't find it on the website - maybe it's retired) and an old unknown welcome.

Very elegant Ardyth, I can totally picture it as the CASology wedding cue, and yes the colors do resemble Google a lot!

Love this baby card Ardyth! I like that it has primary colors for those of us who don't know the sex of the baby. Great all around baby card! Hugs, Brenda

This would have been brilliant for your CASology submission! :D (Although I do like your substitute card, too.) The bright colours and clean fonts look terrific.

Love this baby card! And I'd have chickened out too as far as the 'wedding' theme goes, lol!! Perfect card for a baby born post 2000. Love it! One of my favs now. Miss you. Bev

How brilliant and google-y graphic, Ardyth ... fab for a new baby ... and for a shotgun wedding!! Bisous, Anita :)

Adore the 'google baby' look of your sweet card! Definitely gender neutral!

Personally, I think this would have been an absolute HIT in the CASology gallery...but I likely would have bailed as well!
