Build-a-Block Baby Card

By | May 19, 2014

Once a month my Sunday Stampers meet and yesterday was the day. Also a pleasure to get together with the ladies.  I had a request from Jan, our hostess for the day,  for a special baby card and when I saw some samples of a “Building Block Card” I knew this had to be base of my card!  I found the directions on how to make the card on the SplitCoast stampers blog in the tutorial section.

The card base is Whisper White with Gumball Green (retiring) and Daffodil Delight as the main coordinating cardstocks for backgrounds.  Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper was used on the front as background to the stamping.  Since its was a baby card, I used the Zoo Babies stamp set and the Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up all the animals on each others back, how cool is that! To finish off the front of the card, Congratulations was stamped.

On the front for an accent, pieces of Gumball Green stitched ribbon were folded and placed behind the animals.

Inside on the “blocks”, I used the 1 1/4″ scallop circle punch (Daffodil Delight) and 1″ circle punch (Whisper White) and the words “For Baby” from my Tim Holtz Alteration Upon a Time Alphabet die. On the 4th block under the F-O-R, I punched a heart from the new ” Itty Bitty Accent Punch Set” (new 2014-2015 catalog)

Hope you enjoyed the card as much as the Sunday Stampers did, Craft On!
