Here's a baby card I made for a co-worker's baby shower. It's plenty big for lots of people to sign inside.
I found the cute "Cuddle Cloud Baby" digital image on Meljen's Designs. I used a sketch from the Sketch Saturday challenge for the layout. It's an older sketch - challenge 192.

The base card is a piece of dark blue card stock measuring 6" x 12". Score it 6", and fold.
Cut a piece of light blue card stock measuring 5 7/8" x 5 7/8". Mount 3 pieces of ribbon around the left side of the mat layer. Twist the white ribbon once before you adhere it to the card. Tie a white ribbon bow, and mount it over the twist in the white ribbon stripe.
Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 2 1/2" x 4", and mount it horizontally above the bow.
Cut another piece of patterned paper measuring 3" x 5". Using a paper peircer mount 5 brads across the bottom of this piece of paper. Mount it vertically on the right side of the card front.
I resized the image to a length of 3". Print the image on white card stock, and cut/emboss it using the largest plain oval nestabilities. Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:
- Cloud: BG70
- Hearts: R32, R37
- Stars/Dots: Y15, Lemon SPICA
- Swirls: Sand SPICA
- Skin: E000, E02, R20
- Diaper: BG72, BG75, BG78
Using blue patterned paper, cut/emboss the smallest Grand Scalloped Oval die. Mount the image oval onto the scalloped oval, then mount this onto the card front.
