Baby Card 2 of 2

So, here is the other card I made for my friend for her baby showers.  This one turned out soooo cute!  I made something similiar to an explosion box only with one layer and used it as a "unfolding card box".

I created a simple box using two 9"x9" sheets of cardstock (one for the base and one for the top).  You score the paper on the  both sides at 3" and 6".  You than cut the 4 corner pieces off.  Fold in and this makes the unfolding box base.  For the top I cut out a 5 1/6" inch square (this will create a top that is 3 1/6" with a 1" lip all the way around). 

I than used cute baby I had in my stash from paper pizazz I picked up at Joann's.  I cut these squares for each side at 2 1/2".   I have a ton of cute baby stickers and 3D embellishments in my stash that I decorated the inside and outside with. 

I finished it off with glueing a piece of ribbon on the bottom of the box so it would stay attached but could come up around the sides and tie into a cute bow at the top.   My friend went goofy over it and the mother to be and everyone at the shower LOVED it!

Baby Shower Card 1 of 2

A Friend of mine asked me to make a couple of baby shower cards for some teachers that are expecting from our school.  We know that one of the babies is a girl and the other is a surprise.  I worked on the girl baby card and created a tri-fold style card.  There are lots of tutorials out there on how to do this style card.  I just love the way it turned out.   Sticking with my notion of using up scraps I can't even tell you what paper this is. 
The saying is from a DCWV pack I had that came with velum sayings for babies.  The font that spells out "baby" is a digital font called DJ inkers doodles.  The baby on the stork is a digital scrapbook elements from the many kits I have.  I had so much fun making this and I think it looks adorable.  My friend LOVED it!

Card Mania

I challenged myself a couple of weekends ago to make a bunch of random cards using scraps from my craft/scrap room. I used various scrap papers and old tags I had lying around. I used random stamps from lots of different stamp sets I own. Normally I would try and layout the process I went through but this was just a challenge to use scraps which I think worked great. So here are the cards I came up with!
