Storytime Friends baby card

For the past month, the gender of the royal baby has been inevitable… because my former colleague, Jonny, and his wife, Laura, had a baby boy. Why inevitable? Because the couple are living parallel lives with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Not totally parallel, obviously – Jonny and Laura don’t do many state visits. Nor did people camp outside the hospital waiting for news. But they got married at around the same time, and then produced their first-born at roughly the same time. Ok, not very parallel at all – but there were at least commemorative tea towels made for both weddings!

So today seems the right time to show you the baby card I made for Jonny and Laura. There’s only one new product on this one, just a clean design and some soft, gentle colours.

I’ve employed the Simply Scored tool here to add a bit of interest around the edges of the Whisper White panel. Colouring was kept to a minimum – just a little So Saffron around the edges of the lamb, a little Pear Pizzazz on the grass and a tiny amount of Pool Party around the outside edges of the lamb for shading.

Stamps: Storytime Friends, Happy Day
Cardstock: Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron
Accessories: Blender Pen, Paper Doilies, Simply Scored


  1. Beautiful! This is so clean and elegant, perfect for a prince! Aren't all babies princes and princesses, after all?

  2. Love this! It's a CAS card for sure but absolutely lovely! Love the scored lines too - why don't I do that?!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
