Baby Girl

The inside of the card - the middle has an opening to hold a gift card
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!  Can not believe that Sunday is tomorrow!!   This weekend has flown by too quickly but I was able to get several scrapbooking projects completed today, so it was a very productive day!! :) 

The project that I have to share today is a card that I made for a friend of mine that just had a baby....this is the 4th person that I know that has had a baby in the last month....I guess it is in the water right now.  :)  She recently moved to North Carolina so I wanted to send a gift card instead of an actual gift, since I don't know what all she has received and still needs.  I learned how to make this 'gift card holder' from Heather, where you create an overlay that you slice a slit the size of a gift card in the middle.  It is such an awesome way to hold the gift card vs. having the gift card just laying inside.  The pictures have a bit of a shadow and are a little dark....sorry!! Should have turned on a lamp....whoops! :(  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
