Zoo Babies

I attended the baby shower for Anthony and Shakarri Hamilton of Dublin, Ohio on Saturday.  I am so proud of this devoted couple so my card to them had to have multiple WOW factors.    The Zoo Babies stamp set makes a perfect baby shower card.  The pristine cuts from the Dies by Dave framelits, popped the adorable giraffe and rhinoceros (for some reason I keep calling him a hippo) for first WOW.  The second WOW is inside the card with a coordinating die cut gift card holder announced by that cutie potooty toucan. 

A handmade card lets the recipient know how much you care.  What was tucked inside the gift card holder may fade from their minds over time, but the card will stay in their hearts forever.

Sweet Baby

One of the qualities of a good demonstrator is to be a good listener.  I listen to my customers and use their comments as constructive feedback to improve their Stamp Camp experience.  Sometimes they will ask for a card with a certain theme.  A baby boy card was requested by one of  my customers.  Being a good listener, her wish was my command.  The Itty Bitty Banner stamp set made this card versatile enough to use for not just a baby card.

The Moving Forward stamp set used on this card is official Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set.  Stampin’ UP! donates $3.00 from each set purchased to the RMHC.
