Start-to-Finish Sunday #15 - Gender Neutral Baby Card with Window

This card came about in a rather interesting way. I was on Pinterest and I saw that somebody had pinned a pair of adorable handmade loafers from etsy. They were super cute, so naturally I repinned them. :) But then I kept thinking about that picture, not for the shoes, but for the color combination. I really liked it a lot and tried to figure out how to interpret it in Stampin' Up! colors. Here's that inspiration photo...

Totally cute, right? :) So for my project I chose Sahara Sand, Basic Gray, Pool Party, Cajun Craze, and Very Vanilla. Then I had to mull over it for a few days to decide what kind of card to make. Well, friends of ours are expecting their second baby this spring, and they're not finding out the gender. I think that's totally awesome, but would never do it myself because then everything people give you for the baby is yellow and green! (Seriously people, baby girls can wear blue and baby boys can wear purple. It's ok.) So I decided on a gender-neutral baby card.

For a little added interest, I decided to cut a window out of the front of the card and do my stamping on the inside so that it shows through. Love this technique!

The video came out a little long because I goofed up and had to fix it. But I decided to keep that part in because I always appreciate when other cardmakers show how they fix their mistakes. I hope you do to! Anyway, you can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Happy Stampin'! :)
