Adoption Card


I'm so excited for my cousin and his wife. After going through a very long process, they were finally able to bring home their new daughter from China last week. Isn't that the best Christmas present ever? Since Charlotte is 2, I didn't want to make a traditional baby card. Instead, I thought this image from the "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge would be perfect. I cut it, with its shadow, at 3.35".

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Berry Sorbet cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Dark Chocolate cardstock
3 3/4" x 5" Patterned Paper from the "Pink Patterns" Collection
"Night, Night Moon" Stamp Set
True Black Ink
ekSuccess Ticket Punch
Berry Sorbet Topnotch Twill Ribbon
