The stamp set, Zoo Babies, is perfect for creating a darling new baby card. Several of the critters even lend themselves to paper piecing for adding a little dimension.

This card is loosely based upon a card sketch I found online. As I worked through my creative ideas, I deviated away from the sketch a little bit. But it is still fairly true and recognizable as created from the sketch.

I used Designer Series Paper, punches, Framelits and a stamp from a Paper Pumpkin kit! A little heat embossing, buttons and baker's twine, Basic Pearls, Paper Snips and Stampin' Dimensionals all added their own special touches.

Do you see how the elephant's ear is stamped onto the heart DSP, and then cut out? I love how it looks like little matching dots poking through the grid of the stamp. 

And the arrow stamps underneath the heart-festooned banners are from a Paper Pumpkin kit! See how versatile and forever-useful those Paper Pumpkin kits are?!?
