If you like Creative Stamping on Facebook, you will know that my sister had a healthy baby boy over Easter.  What better way to express our best wishes than with a card!  I created this "it's a boy" swing card using the Circle Card Thinlits Die and Baby Prints stamp set...

Inside the circle on the card front is a clay impression of a baby's handprint.  To create this sweet keepsake, I rolled a large amount of Simply Pressed Clay into a ball, pressed it flat onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and then left the flat disk to air-dry for about 10 minutes (this stops the clay from sticking to the rubber stamp).  Using the hand print stamp from the Baby Prints stamp set, I pressed the rubber image into the clay.  After the clay was completely dry, I adhered the finished impression onto my card using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
