Sweet Baby Card with Matching Gift Tag

When I saw the Sweet Baby card on page 24 of the Spring Catalog, I knew immediately that I would make it for an upcoming baby shower I was recently invited to attend. What I love most about this card is that it's non-traditional but yet so adorable.
Here is a picture of the card along with a matching gift bag and shaker tag.  I love how everything easily coordinates.  For the gift bag, I purchased a bag with white polka dots and then stamped polka dots on white tissue paper using Calypso Coral Ink and the Distressed Dots stamp.
Here's a close up of the card.  To make the card, I used the Layer Labels Stamp Set to stamp the middle of the card.  Then I layered the card using the really cool new Silver Soda Pop Tops, which are lined inside with baby images stamped and punched using the Itty Bitty Stamp Set and one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I used the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies to create the "sweet baby" tag.  To complete the card, I embellished it using Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine and a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets.

Here's a close up of the shaker tag I created to coordinate with the card and gift bag.  I used the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper along with the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.  Both of these exclusive products can be earned as FREE products during Sale-A-Bration.  I used the same little stamped punches in the shaker that I used inside the soda pop tops on the card.  I love how it all came together to make a coordinating gift.
