Bundle of Joy -My Craft Spot Project

Hello everyone, each Monday there is a new challenge at My Craft Spot this week is challenge #97... that's a lot of challenges, and there is always something fun to challenge you and get your creative juices going.
This weeks challenge...
Invitations and Announcements
(baby, graduate, wedding, parties - we want to see them all!)

This is a post card style pocket card that I made into a baby announcement.
I started with an 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock, folded it in half then cut 1 1/2" off the top.
I had fun incorporating several stamp sets from My Craft Spot in designing this card.
I used the Postage Stamp stamp set along with the coordinating Postage Stamp metal die. The "it's a Girl" is from the Bundle of Joy stamp set.
These adorable pink feet are cut from the New Arrival cricut cartridge found on pg. 110 of the handbook and cut at 3 3/4"
I used the Scalloped Diamond border punch from EK Success, on the brown piece of cardstock.
I used my sewing machine to sew all around the card.
My announcement pulls out of the pocket, it would also be fun to place a photo in the pocket as well.
The Bundle of Joy phrase is from the New Arrival stamp set, along with the individual words name:, length: etc.
Close us of the announcement
The tiny postage stamp images on the announcement card are from the Postage Stamp stamp set, the words in the circle read "special delivery" ... so appropriate right!
