Baby Shower Card

Good Morning Everyone! 

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Here in New York we had a beautiful day on Saturday, the weather was warm and we almost got into the 60s.  However, it is cold again today and they are saying we might have snow tomorrow into Wednesday -- so much for Spring!  Anyway, enough about the weather, I want to share a card I made for a dear, sweet, crafty friend who is about to have a baby.  I was fortunate enough to get invited to her baby shower and I knew I just had to make her card.

I wanted to make something special so I chose a building block card.  My papers are white Georgia Pacific card stock, light blue Recollections card stock and the patterned paper I believe is by DCWV.  For the big rattle on the front of the card I used my Cricut New Arrivals cartridge.  The rattle parts were all cut at 3 1/2 inches.  I cut the shadow three times and glued them all together because I wanted it to have a little weight to it.  Then I layered the top using the same papers as the card base.  I added three Queen and Company pearls and a piece of ribbon I had in my stash. I used foam tape on the back to make it pop up off the card front.  For the inside I chose some EK Success dimensional baby stickers.  The letters for Baby Boy were cut from the Plantin School Book Cricut cartridge.  My sentiment was typed and printed out on my computer.

That's my baby shower card.  I think my friend liked it and I hope you did too. 



  1. Wow.......Paula your card is fabulous! I have never seen a building block card before, what a great idea, your friend will love it! The cricut cuts are perfect:) Have a great day!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I love trying different kinds of card shapes. This one was really fun to make. I found the tutorial on the Split Coast Stampers site. Thanks again.
