Baby Cards...

Here is a baby card made for a friend, she has a shower to go to on Saturday and asked me to make her a card for it. I ordered they swiss dot cb folder and had hoped it would come today but the Mail person didn't have it... :( Maybe tomorrow. I thought it would be more appropriate but used the flower one instead. I really had to look for a ribbon tying tutorial and never found a video which is what I must have. (See I am challenged when it comes to reading instructions! Can't do it.... )Shy Whistler I did find a great instruction one here. I think I did an okay job, one problem I always seem to have is that the ribbons come out pointing up rather than down so I tied it then turned it over before attaching it.
I have made a few and would like your opinion on them. Are they both alright for a girl and which one would you choose? Please let me know what you think.

Awsome cards! I love the cards you have been posting on your blog!

They are both perfect for a little girl. I really like the all pink top one. I really like how the embossed background is cut into pieces. I usually turn my card upside down before tying my bows, because mine always end up the wrong way too.

Both cards are lovely and would be perfect for a girl. My favourite is the top one.

Here is a bow tying tutorial I came across. This one is for a knot, but you can also look at the others that are shown on that site for bows.

Love your cards! First time to you site. I found it from your posting on my blog! Good luck!

These are both adorable!! I hate it when the mailman doesn't bring my stuff when I need it!! LOL!! I find if I turn the card in the opposite direction before tying the bow they go the right way, but yours look fabulous!!

They are both perfect for a girl! I love the second one, simply b/c you stamped the white on the pink, and I never would have thought of that!!! Kerilou
