Card #8 –  New Baby Girl card

I need to start off today’s post with a confession.  I did, in fact, make today’s card – I just didn’t make it today.  I made it about 8 months ago for a card making challenge.  Yesterday, I was going through my stash of cards and came across this card and thought it would make a good addition to this series and truth be told, I simply ran out of time.  So here’s today’s card along with the tutorial video I made.

I used pink cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, pale pink cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) for the front and a selection of pink patterned cardstock (1″ X 5″) for the design.

Here is the finished card.









And the video (it’s only 8 minutes):

This is also a great card for using up scraps.  The scalloped pieces are made using a scallop die cut and run through the Big Shot Machine. Additionally, you could really use this design with any sentiment.

Remember to leave a comment below and be entered to win this card today and possibly the Grand Giveaway of all 31 cards on February 1, 2015.

Until tomorrow,




Woody & Ellie todayIn the video, when we asked if we were getting another puppy, we thought you understood that ‘puppy’ meant a dog of any age.  Obviously we need to communicate better.  That being said, we think Mindy’s awesome.  Good choice!
