Friends of ours just had a baby boy, so this was the perfect challenge since I bought them a Babies R Us gift card.
I made mine following the pop-up gift card holder tutorial that was posted on SCS a couple weeks ago. OMG, these are soooooo easy to make...and fun! I'll definitely be using this again for a couple Christmas gift cards!
...and of course whenever I make anything baby-related, THIS Whipper Snapper Squeaky Clean stamp is THE first stamp I think of. It's my absolute favorite for baby cards (or gift card holders, hehe!). It's watercolored with reinkers and I added some December Sky Shimmerz paint to the water and bubbles. The Mellow Moss mat behind the main image is up on foam dots.
The inside left cover has a stamped sentiment and some baby pins in the lower corners. This is where I'll write our little congratulations note to them. For the back cover, I printed out all the birth info (name, date, time,weight, and then at the bottom it says "...and cute as a button") from the computer onto white CS.
