Baby Card

It seems like I've been making more cards than layouts lately. I'm not gonna lie, it's fun! I love being able to get a finished project in so much less time. I also love using up my scraps. You can do so much more with so much less when making cards.

My son and daughter-in-law still have not announced the sex of their baby so I've been making crafts that are teal (if it's a boy) and lavender (if it's a girl). They will be hosting a gender reveal dinner on the 28th, so I don't have too much longer to wait, but boy it seems like forever!

The card today is a teal (boy) version. I'm helping a friend with putting on a baby shower at the end of August so I'm trying to come up with ideas for invitations, thank you notes, decorations and favors.

The only definite thing I know is that there will be a gray chevron pattern that will be used regardless of the baby being a boy or a girl, so you'll be seeing a lot of that in the near future. The font stamp for the banners is from Close to my Heart and is called Glamour, Lower Case Alphabet.
Here is the inside:

I used the pennants punch from Stampin' Up and everything went together very quickly. I also used the itty bitty punch pack from Stampin' Up and brads to hold the banner together on the front of the card.


  1. Cute baby card! Cards are my absolute favorite to make too. I want to make layouts, but I like my finished project and being able to share.

  2. Total cuteness! Love the colors!

  3. Bring on the chevron!!! I think it ranks right up ther on my top 5 list with hexagons. ;) Cute card.


Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
