A Week of Retiring Stamps - Day 5 - Goodbye to Fox & Friends

Here's a cute little card for you today. It's a perfect card for a new baby, but you could change the greeting and easily make it into a young child's birthday card.

This layout is inspired by a card from the talented Mary Fish. I cut five 1"x4" strips of Nursey Nest designer paper and attached them to a Pear Pizzazz card base. The monkey images are from the Fox & Friends stamp set, and are stamped in Early Espresso on Whisper White. That panel is on an extra wide mat of Blushing Bride Cardstock. I tied Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon around one end. I used the Pinking Hearts border punch on a small strip of Early Espresso Textured Cardstock, and tucked that under the main panel. The greeting, from A Word for You stamp set, is stamped on Marina Mist in Espresso ink.

On the inside, I used Early Espresso ink and textured paper, the Pinking Hearts border punch and Nursery Nest designer paper again. The greeting is from Curvy Verses.
