Muse #34 - Hello, Baby Bear


For this week's Muse challenge, where our inspiration is this clean card by Therese:




Debby Hughes used this Ink+Wit  image once upon a time and I knew I had to have it. It's perfect for baby cards! And brown (Baked Brown Sugar) and cream is a great neutral colour combination for baby cards. It's especially useful for those baby showers that happen before the baby arrives, but it's easy to add a last-minute tiny pop of colour as I have here if you know what kind of baby it is.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

This card is neither a 4.25x4.25 square (my favourite go-to size) or a 4.25x5.5 standard card. It's 4.25x 4.875 (that's 4 7/8). There's no science to it - I just felt it was the right amount of space plus it will still fit into a regular envelope.

There's still time for you to play along with Muse this week. The deadline is Monday at 8:00 am EDT and then you can vote until Tuesday at 8:00 (even if you didn't get a chance to play along!). Hope to see you there!

  1. Sigh ... this is so adorable, Ardyth ... such a perfect colour (one I would never have thought of for a baby card but it's delicious) and I LOVE that wee pop of hot pink bling! Sweet and elegant at the same time! Anita :)

  25. BEYOND....WAY BEYOND sweet & cute! I just checked out Ink+Wit (must be living under that rock again, cuz this is news to me!) and the image is sold out. I strongly suspect sales went through the roof minutes after you posted this fabulous card! The sweet wee pop of pink is perfect - especially with the kraft colors!
