Today, I thought it would be fun to make some cards that can be used for either a baby shower or birth of a little one. I used Stampin’ Up! Little Dreamers Bundle, as well as, the Partial Embossing Technique to make some darling baby cards. If you are unfamiliar with the Partial Embossing Technique, the link for my Connect To Create video showing you how to do it is here.
Since I didn’t have any current patterned paper that I wanted to use on this card, I decided to layer with Balmy Blue card stock followed by a layer of partially embossed Basic White. For my partially embossed layer, I used two different embossing folders, one of the Basics and Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folders. The variation in texture and dimension was appealing and the Cane Weave reminded me a crocheted baby blanket.
For the die cuts of the moon, I used a scrap of Lemon Lolly card stock. The stars were die cut from Textured 12′ x 12″ Shimmer Paper (Balmy Blue). If you don’t have the Shimmer Paper, simply use Balmy Blue card stock or color an area using Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends on Basic White and die cut the stars, that way.
The video below will demonstrate how to make the card, as well as, some tips and tricks. Further down in the post, you will find a second baby card. You will, also, find the supplies, measurements and instructions with a downloadable PDF. Leave me a comment, I would love to know which of these darling baby cards you like best!
