I’ve sold out of nearly all of the baby cards in my Etsy shop so it was time to come up with some new designs and replenish my stock. While I like traditional baby colors and soft pastels, I really prefer non-traditional color combinations, especially when the results are gender neutral so that I can have appropriate cards on hand whether it’s a boy or girl.
I decided to use Bunny Luv by House Mouse Designs depicting a mother’s love for her baby as the central image. I still had on hand enough of the Sealed with a Kiss patterned card stock by Doodlebug to add as an accent. I wanted to play off the hearts in the stamped image with the design of the card stock. And while brown and red are probably not traditional baby colors, I think this combination works and I’m pleased with the end result.
