Cute and Cuddly - New Baby Card

Hello bloggers today's card is a cute card for a new baby.

This card began as a white hammered DL card blank.  To the card blank I stamped some random building blocks using Victorian velvet distress ink and Crafter's Companions 'popcorn the bear kids bundle of joy' stamp set.  I then punched out a 3" circle using a circle punch and some baby footprint patterned paper.  This was then adhered to the card blank.  Next I added some pink floral card stock to just below the circle.  I adhered some pink polka dot horizontally across the card and then a strip of gingham card stock vertically down the right hand side of the card.  Next I stamped my topper using the same ink and stamp set.  It was then coloured using ProMarkers and die cut using spellbinders scallop labels 1 die set.  Whilst still in the die I inked through with Victorian velvet distress ink  Using some pink mirror board I die cut a mat for the topper using the same sized die as before.  I then cut it in half vertically and adhered it to either side of the topper to make a mat.  The sentiment was then stamped directly onto the card using the same stamp set and black soot distress ink.  Finally I added 3 pram shaped buttons to the gingham strip.
