I had an idea of the layout I wanted to use, but it took me some time to get it finalized.  I am hoping my instructions help those that may want to CASE it complete it faster than I.  Stampin’ Up! has done a fabulous job with the coordinating products in the Twinkle Twinkle Suite. I love the Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins and they really make the card.

    Love all the elements you chose to create this card, particularly the effect of the water colored letters. Can’t wait for my Little Twinkle bundle and DSP to arrive. Got the lined alphabet bundle with my first order of the new catalog but held out for the DSP’s and some other things and now I’m doing the “happy dance” when I see such inspiring projects like yours.

    This is truly a great baby card. I guess I just didn’t understand why t calls for so much DSP?. The directions call for 12 sheets of six double- sided DSP.. What did you do to finish your inside of card Any parents would love receiving a card like this. Would also make great birth announcements. Thank you for sharing!

      I must not have made the directions very clear because it didn’t take 12 sheets. It takes a little over a 6×6 piece. I will read back through the instructions to determine if I need to reword it so that it is better understood. Thank you for enjoying the card.
