Baby Shower Card with {Fussy Cutting}

Peek-a-boo!  This sweet stamp set, Baby Bundle, was used to make a card for an upcoming baby shower gift.  It was also a CardPatterns entry for their sketch and an entry at 365 Cards for "Feeling Fussy" (fussy cutting).  I didn't get the irony until now (baby card = fussy?)  Ha!
Studio-Sara Suggestion:  Use the Stampin' Up! Paper Snips (super sharp -- I've cut myself before!) and with the jaws wide open, slowly make your cuts.  If you do repeated snips, it's harder to get a clean edge on your cutting.
My Stamp-a-Ma-Jig made it easy to place the baby *just so*.  My Blender Pen (dipped in Pink Pirouette) and my {new} Summer Starfruit Stampin' Write Marker made coloring in the carriage a snap.  I used my Blender Pen with the Basic Gray ink to do the tires (after the Pink Pirouette, just to be sure the pen was super-clean). 

The piece of Whisper White with the image was backed on a piece of Primrose Petals, another {new} In Color.
The Top Note die, fed back through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, plus a snippet of Whisper White Organza Ribbon add a bit of class to this project.
