Baby Blues!

Here is my first ever baby card. This is for a colleague who recently had a baby boy.

Luckily and very kindly I borrowed the following from my SU (Stampin' Up!) Mom Caroline as mine are in the post! These were the 'Bundle of Love 121223 (wood mounted - £26.95) 121291  (clear £21.95)  for 16 stamps. I also used the jumbo Stampin' Around wheel with Baby Tees (118621 - £8.50). The card was my own stock and I used Marina Mist Stampin' Up! Ink Pad. Here are the steps of how I made this:

I first used the Jumbo Stampin' Around wheel with the Baby Tees to do the background, the ink used was Marina Mist. I trimmed this card so that it fitted in the A5 cream card with about 1cm border (Hope that makes sense!).

I printed the pram and cut round the edge for an extra effect and mounted. I then wondered how I was going to put this on the front of the card and thought of hanging it from the top. So I put two holes exactly in the centre of the navy paper, one at the top and one at the bottom. I also printed a little caption and hole punched this in the centre as shown in the picture below.

The ribbon was then attached to the pale blue background using the snail adhesive, which is a double sided sticky tape. 
And here is the final product, let me know what you thought, I am sure the mum is going to love this!

  1. Wow! I love it! Can't believe you created it so quickly. You were only round a couple of hours ago! I totally love the way you've cut around the pram, I'd never have thought of doing that! I'm sure any Mum would be thrilled to receive such a gorgeous card. I love the Baby Tees wheel, it's so darned CUTE!
