I made this card for a woman at work. She likes to give personalized cards to new moms. I hadn't made one of these since I've had my Cricut. (I used to use punched out balloons to put the personalized information on--see my "Earlier Cards" page for a laugh!). Here's a "new" style card for a baby girl.
Here's how I made it.
Card is 5 x 6.5"
Cardstock: Baby animal cardstock is from DCWV Nana's Nursery, Baby Girl matstack. Blue cardstock is Heidi Grace, both inside and outside of the card. MS Doily Lace punch used inside and out too.
Cartridge: New Arrival, p. 98 Outfit cut at 4" blackout in pink patterned paper by Heidi Grace with green patterned shadow from same Heidi Grace cardstock pad; p. 107 2 booties cut at 1-1/4" blackout with same pink and green paper. "It's a Girl" wording, p.90 cut at 1" shadow.
Wording: Getting the wording to print in the center of each image was a little tricky, but I finally did it after several attempts practicing with white cardstock. This is the first time I used the Centerpoint key function on my Expression. Great feature for centering your cut around a picture or wording, in my case. Probably would have been a little easier to start with a photo!
Added some gems, white stitching with a gel pen, pink ribbon around the booties, and pink glitter ribbon for some pizazz.
I'm really pleased with the finished product. Hope you like it too! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits!
