"It's a Girl" Diaper Card

My sister's baby shower is tomorrow for her baby girl due the beginning of January 2013. I thought the Cricut Artise Cartridge would create the perfect shower card.





I used the "card" cut on page 64 (or the letter v) on the Artise Cartridge. I cut the diaper at 5" and the sentiment at 2".

The following products were used:

CTMH Tulip cardstock
CTMH Light Pink cardstock
CTMH Green cardstock (extra from Advent Workshop)
Sparkles Clear Assortment
Blush Close to My Heart Ink
