Baby Shower Cards

A co-worker asked me if I could make a couple of baby shower cards for her. She doesn’t know if the babies are boys or girls so it was a bit of a challenge. Most of the patterned paper I had was either for a girl or boy. This is the first one I came up with.
I started with a 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” white card stock base. I then added a green mat cut at 4” X 5 1/4” and then the patterned paper cut at 3 3/4” X 5”. I used a corner rounder to round the two outside corners on each layer. I cut the Bundle of Joy at 3 1/2” from the Everyday Pop Up Cricut Cartridge. I added a light yellow ribbon and pop dotted the image to my card.
For the second card I again started with a 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” white cardstock card base. I added a teal blue mat cut at 4” X 5 1/4” and my patterned paper cut at 3 3/4” X 5”. I wrapped some teal twine around the card and adhered it to my base. I cut the baby carriage from the Mother’s Day 2010 seasonal cartridge at 3 1/2”. I cut the base layer from green and the top layer from yellow cardstock. I added some tiny white buttons to the center of the wheels and pop dotted the whole thing to my card front. I stamped my image with some yellow ink on white cardstock and cut it down and matted it with some green card stock and then added it to my card with some foam tape as well. I hope she likes them.
