Welcome Baby

Hello friends!  Janice here to show you a card I made with the CottageCutz Rocking Horse, from the recent baby release.  I LOVE this entire collection!  So CUTE!  I used the rocking horse with October Afternoon, Cakewalk papers to create a Welcome Baby card.  I could see this die being used for Christmas cards as well, by adding some pine boughs with pine cones.  I wanted to have one already made to show you the variation but didn't have enough time.  Maybe next time I will show you a Christmas one.  So here is my card for today.

I also used the Stork Banner and the Baby Buttons Mini.  After the pieces were assembled, I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.  Everything was pop dotted and some Hug Snug seam binding was used to tie the bow.  Next is a picture of 3 assembled rocking horses.  One of them was made with the left over pieces from this card.

This rocking horse would look wonderful on  a baby layout or as a Christmas ornament.  How might you be inspired to use the rocking horse?  Have a great day!

Hugs and smiles,
