One of our good friends just gave birth to girl #2, and I put together a card (without Cricut!). It's almost so impossible now to create a card without using a cutout of any sort, but I've got way too much embellishments and felt like I need to make something out of these before my husband looks at it and tells me that I just buy but haven't seen me use this stuff.
I used the triangle chipboard from American Crafts to make a banner, and used stamp for "girl" and the sentiments. I used prima flowers, ribbons and cotton lace. I don't think I've even put a dent in my collection, but I can say that I HAVE USED IT with confidence!
Here's the card:
