Sweet New Baby

Today I have a baby girl card to share that features some sweet Simon Says Stamp products, old and new.
To make this card, first I die cut the Small Heart Doily from some cute Pebbles Special Delivery patterned paper. I added a sentiment created by mixing a stamp from Simon's Handwritten Greetings set, with one from Clearly Besotted's Sentimental Type set. I love mixing and matching my sets like this to create custom messages.
Next, I die cut the Super Heart border from another sheet of patterned paper then laid it over some of the polka paper before flicking with Calico Shine Mister Huey's.

As I was adhering the heart to the card, I couldn't resist adding a vellum die cut Calliope Flourish. Love this die so much… And a little button completed the card.Sweet New Baby 1 by Lucy Abrams 
I do love die cutting, and I must add that my new Big Shot is AMAZING. I asked my Instagram followers for advice on whether to buy a Big Shot or a new Cuttlebug and the vote was petty much unanimously in favour of the Big Shot. I miss the convenience and portability of my Bug, but the Big Shot is fantastic. My favourite thing: it is slightly wider than 6 x 6 meaning I no longer have to trim down my 6 x 6 papers before running them through the machine. :) It's the little things, right. :)
OK - that's all from me today.
Have a great weekend.
Bye for now.
