This was such a fun card to make! I made it to welcome a sweet baby boy to our world using the Party Pandas set from Stampin’ Up. The set is no longer available – it was part of their Sale-a-bration in 2018 – but look in your collection, you probably have a very cute stamp that you could use in place of the panda.

I stamped the panda with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock. I colored the balloon and added the shadow beneath the panda with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment with blue ink. The sentiment stamp I used has been in my collection forever! You probably have a great baby sentiment stamp in your collection. If you are looking for something new, I love this set from Lawn Fawn.
I used this set of Dotted Scallop Rectangle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to die cut the stamped image and a larger rectangle from brown card stock. I layered the stamped image to the brown rectangle. (This is my favorite adhesive for card making and here are the refills.)
I embossed a panel of bright blue card stock with the Softly Falling embossing folder from Stampin’ Up – also no longer available 😦 But this Dot Embossing Folder would be great! Or use your favorite embossing folder in your collection. I tied some brown and white bakers twine around the panel and then attached it to a white card. The stamped image is attached to the card with foam tape.
This would also make a great birthday card for a little one – just change the sentiment to Happy Birthday.
