This was done using the old retired Soft and Sweet set, which goes beautifully with the Buggies and Booties set still available. Both sets have wonderful sentimental sayings - I use one on the front and another inside, usually also with the word Congratulations on the inside also. I used the old single stamps plaidmaker set, so I could do part of the plaid in blue and the other stripe in pink. I like the look I got. Oh, and after reading and seeing so many cards done with that darn Cuttlebug, I went to Joanne's and got one with a 40% coupon ($89-$36). So the blue and pink pieces behind the saying and the baby's face are done using an embossing folder (only $4.99) for the cuttlebug. I used matching SU brads and store bought pink gingham ribbon. Unfortunately, the baby's face looks a bit jaundiced! I overdid it with the blush blossom. This card is meant for a large SU 6 bar envelope. I work for a non-profit - we run a Hospitality House in our community for individuals and families who are ill, and also take in health students who are studying - medical students, etc. I make my cards and sell them at my office and donate all my proceeds to help pay the bills for the house. I always stamp my cards with an approved Angel Policy stamp, but also created a very small image on clear labels with a graphic of the house and a notation that the proceeds to towards helping with the house. It also states that I use Stampin Up products for the cards, so I feel doubly covered.
