FabScraps Royal Baby Cards



FabScraps Royal Baby Collection 

FabScraps continues to surprise me with each new collection release - each one so completely different from the last.   This is a soft and adorable release and perfect for all those baby projects you need to start.  

Well at least I need to start!  I have a few baby events coming in the coming months and I'd love to give the new parents something created from my heart.  What could be better?  

I am also on a simple "do-able" card kick lately.  Something that others can actually replicate if they wanted to.   Simple instructions  for each card are at the bottom of this post . 


Card 1 Baby Blocks
Here are some cards I made.  
The first card uses  a few items from the Royal Baby collection:
C70002 Precious Bunny paper
C70007 Pastel Alphabet
MC70001A - Postcard

The postcard from MC70001A journal die pack has a nice vintage feel so that is the look I used for my card. 
Card 1
Products used from the Royal Baby collection:
C70002 Precious Bunny paper
DC70007 Little One Chipboard words



I have an embossing folder that sasy congratulations so I thought I'd put it to good use.  I embossed ivory cardstock and then ran an inkpad over the top.
