Welcome Baby card

Hello everyone! I'm here to share a simple little card with you. I'm also sharing this over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY so, if you get a chance, stop over there to see all the crafty goodness that goes on there everyday!!  A friend asked if I could make a card for her to give with a hand-knitted afghan that she was giving to a friend and wanted a verse from Psalm 139 inside because it seemed fitting since she knit the afghan! :-) I decided to give my Cricut Gel pens a try to just write the verse instead of handwriting it or cutting it out.  I designed everything in the Cricut Craft Room, which, by the way, is great for typing text when you want to use the markers or gel pens.

"Welcome Little One" was cut at 4.5" from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2.

For the phrase I used the font from Extreme Fonts and sized it at .5".  I had to make this card kind of quick so I wasn't really happy with my font choice but it worked for my first try.

I love to use my little blog stamp when I giving a card as a gift. :-)

Thanks for stopping by to see my quick little card! I'm anxious to get back into some more in-depth crafting when things slow down a little! Ha! What am I saying??? I can dream, at least! :-)

What a great card. The gel pens worked really great for the sentiment in this card. Thanks for sharing today on She's A Sassy Lady!
