So Happy For You Handmade Baby Card

so-happy-for-you-baby-card

I’m not sure what to think about the way this card turned out. I think maybe the swirl needed to be a different color? Maybe popped up? I definitely could have stamped the greeting straighter lol…oh well, I’ll call it a prototype and change it a bit if I redo it. :D. You know…just one of those weeks…

If you’re interested, the video is below. I cut the 2 white papers and the dotted paper at 4″ x 2″, and embossed the white paper, then edged them with a Fiskars Edge Punch. The swirl is from Cricut’s Cindy Loo, and then there’s a run-of-the-mill blue button. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Crib Mobile Handmade Card

This week’s card started with a simple idea of making a baby card with a crib mobile. I’m not sure if I quite accomplished what I was after, but I like how it turned out anyway. This card can be this simple, or you could add extras to jazz it up a bit. I used a 4″ tag that I cut from Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge (a plain square, or a square trimmed with decorative edge scissors would work too), and I used star die cuts (Cricut Doodlecharms @ 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″), adhesive pearls, and a peel-off greeting sticker. Try to convert this to a scrapbook page by cutting a larger tag and stars. It would look so cute with a baby photo under the star mobile :). Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cricut Create A Critter Baby Card

I haven’t made a baby card in a while, but decided to use my Cricut Create A Critter cartridge to make this sweet baby card. This card also works great for a young boy’s birthday card too. Now of course you don’t need this actual die cut to make a similar card, just look for an image to print, a stamped image, or a sticker to use in place of the giraffe. I just wanted something thin and tall to fill that space and I cut the giraffe at 4″.

Besides the die cut, I used a white card, brown cardstock, white cardstock, 2 different blue patterned papers, ribbon, brads, and silver letter stickers. Thanks for stopping by!

Teddy Bear Baby Card

This week, I made a simple baby card for a boy. Of course the colors can be changed for a girl and teddy bears work for any little cutie :).

I used a teddy bear stamp that I got a long time ago, so I’m sorry that I can’t tell you where I got it, but any teddy bear stamp or die cut would work great. Even another animal would be cute, such as an elephant from Inkadinkado’s Baby Boy Stamps or a giraffe from Inkadinkado’s Baby Girl Stamps.  I also had a button that I tied ribbon through, and another stamp with a baby saying that I from Hobby Lobby. This card is so fast & easy! Thanks for stopping by!
