Baby Shower Blocks

Baby Showers are a great time to get cute & a bit over the top.. for this one I tried my hand at a block step card. Not sure what the actual name of the design is, but the idea is it can look like blocks stacked up in a stair case fashion.  
I pulled the dimensions & scoring / cutting instructions from Deb Valder's blog.

 The baby carriage die I absolutely love so even though it is bigger than the 1 3/8 in squares, I had to use it. I cut a second one to use for the pieces in the hood of the carriage... all one color it kind of looses something.
The blanket draped over the corner is just a piece of white stock I'd run through the dot embossing folder & cut off a bit after I rounded the corner.

Although you can't really tell from these pictures, I added a bit of shine with glossy accents around the carriage hood, the edge of the blanket  and on the heart & flowers.

Flowers, hearts & tiny feet... all sweet little nods to the precious little one on the way.
