Welcome Baby featuring Mini Peeps

Hello. My sister's good friend was having a baby shower so this card is for the happy couple. She didn't know the gender of the baby so I kept it neutral using yellows and grays. 

I used a really cool lettering die by SimonSaysStamp called Alphabet Blocks. It's really neat because you get the letters to create the word twice. It cuts out like the way I did above by and you will also have the negative cut outs to use on an additional card. It was my first time playing around with it and here's a tip: If you want to give it some dimension, adhere the foam to the card stock first before cutting it. I made the mistake of not doing that and I had to fussy cut foam and double sided tape to line up the letters. It took a lot of time to do it.

Next I used the Lawn Fawn flower die on white card stock and stamped and embossed the welcome sentiment on it. I stamped the baby peeps and filled it in with glossy accents. 

The card is very simple as I wanted the printed background to really stand out.
