Hello and welcome...
I made this card for my niece and her husband who have just become the very proud parents of  a little girl, their first baby

I started with white card stock and die cut and embossed the frame from the Shadow Box Collection - New Arrival and added mounting foam to the back for dimension

Next I embossed another piece of white card stock using the Love Hearts Embossing Folder and adhered the frame onto this

From the Shadow Box Collection - Stitched Lattice Frames and using white card and the first and third dies I die cut and embossed to give me the larger outer frame.  I then used the first and second dies and die cut and embossed onto pink card.  I glued the pink card onto the white frame and adhered this over the main frame

I combined several elements from New Arrival Set, the Little Treasures Set and the Stork and Baby Die Set to fill the cubbies

I die cut the Welcome Little One sentiment 3 times on pink card, glued them together prior to placing them onto the main card

I then adhered this to an A5 white card base and sliced the card at the bottom to give me a very narrow border
