Easy Happy & Heartfelt Baby Cards

Do you love to make easy cards? Over the next three days, I'll be sharing three sets of two cards that you can make using the same basic design layout. Having cards on hand for those last-minute occasions will be easy to do with this card layout. 

It is also fun to stamp directly on your Designer Series Paper. Just make sure you hold the stamp in place to let the ink absorb for a little bit.

I wanted to show you how some simple changes to a card design will give a new look to the same basic layout.


Okay, I made several small changes, but the resulting cards are still super cute in my opinion
!
Change 1 - Ink color for "hello baby!"
Change 2 - Choosing a different pattern from the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper.
Change 3 - Color of the cardstock for the punched heart so the darling little onesie would stand out.


The Onesie/Heart combo is raised off the card front with Dimensionals.
