Baby Shower card and gift box

I'm going to a friend's baby shower in a few minutes, but I thought I'd post these pics really quickly before I go. I was busy most of the morning with this project... the card more so than the box. I just took an old Christmas gift box, and cut a piece of white cardstock to size to fit over the top image. I then just stamped a bunch of baby images on the cardstock. I used double sided tape to secure it to the box top, then colored the outside edges with matching markers. The colors are Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.

A little closer... sorry, the colors are light, so I had a hard time with the photos.

The card was certainly another matter. I have seen a couple of cards like this on other stamping blogs, and didn't have a pattern to work with, so I ended up making my own (which was a little time consuming!) Again, the colors are Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. The striped paper is actually tissue paper that I just glued on to white cardstock to give it some substance. The ribbon is some that was given to me by a friend, but I'm thinking it may be Barely Banana organza(?). The punches I used are all Marvy Uchida. I colored in the Baby Gift stamp with some watercolor markers, but didn't want to make the ink I stamped the image with run, so I just left it "as is."

All closed up...


Stamps I used:

Baby Firsts; A Little Love; Welcome, Little One; Very Punny; Fancy Flexible Phrases; Riveting; Swell News
