If you arrived here from Linda then you are in the right spot. If you just happend by and want to start at the beginning, you can do so by going to: www.paperpiecingsbynikki.blogspot.com.

For my project I used Nikki;s "Ready To Pop" die cut set. This is an adorable pattern that is very quick and easy to cut.  There is no piecing necessary as they are all silhouettes.  I made three baby shower cards is less then an hour and what took the longest was designing the front of the cards.  The cutting only took 5 minutes!.

For the green card I used Perfect Pearls to give the card a shimmery look
The pink & blue card has a $1 stamp border that I stamped in 1/2 pink & 1/2 blue
For the yellow card I used the polka dot background stamp from Pink by Design
All three cards were stamped with sentiments from the Pink by Design Scripted Year stamp set

I added a single element from this collection to the inside of each
 card for a little something extra
