Just a Little Change - Embellished Events

I had a great response yesterday to my, "why try to re-invent the wheel?" post.  So how about we try that again, ok?

I saw the cutest card on the web here and I knew with just a quick modification, it was a perfect baby card for those occasions when you weren't sure if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl.  I did make one identical CASe copy of the first card where I reproduced it exactly - but of course I forgot to take a picture of that one (and it is already gone).  Here however, for your viewing pleasure, is my just a little change version of the card.

Supply List
Stamps - Embellished Events
Paper - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Polka Dot Parade DSP
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip Marker
Big Shot -  Perfect Polka Dots EF
Tools and Accessories - 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 3" Circle Die, Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Sponges

Isn't this a great gender-neutral baby card?  The organza ribbon and delicate doily cut-out on the original card were gorgeous, but really leaned towards a baby girl.  The few modifications I made turn this (at least I think) into a card suitable for the arrival of a baby girl or a baby boy.

See?  The internet is loaded with great card ideas that someone else has already thought up.  When you are pressed for time, (or lacking sufficient mojo), turn to the web and CASe someone else's brilliant idea.

Until tomorrow - have a wonderful day and a great rest of the week.  God Bless,    ~Cynthia     <><


  1. I like your version of the card better - too cute! I'll have to CASE you now! :P

    1. Ha. Thanks Rachelle. I certainly like how "functional" mine is. But the original is awfully cute too! Wish I'd photographed my identical CASE of it before I gave it away. It's all soft and baby-like. :)
      Have a wonderful week and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><

  2. Cute card, and you are so right, it is definitely functional - gender neutral!
