Welcome Little One

Here is a card I made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge and for My Pink Stamper's Challenge. On Cricut Cardz Challenge you are to make a baby card using the colors orange, green, yellow, and white only and on My Pink Stamper you are to make something with a bird. I love when I can enter more than one challenge. Just so you know Robyn on My Pink Stamper is celebrating 5 million hits on her blog and is doing several challenges and giveaways. If you haven't check her blog out you are missing a real treat. Here are the details for my card:


This card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and is folded at the top

  • Cricut cartridge used ~ New Arrival ~ rubber duck. I used the hide contour on my Gypsy to hide the eye. I also used Plantin School Book~ squares for my matting. I used real dial size and also unlinked the height and width to get the sizes I wanted.
  • Martha Stewart ~ Lace punch
  • Solid Cardstock ~ Recollections ~ You can purchase this cardstock at Micheals. I have been trying out different solid cardstock and this seems to cut nicely and it's not too expensive :)
  • Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
  • Sentiment ~ Computer generated
  • Cuttlebug ~ Swiss Dots embossing folder and Divine Swirls embossing folder ~ these are 2 of my favorites!
  • Foam tape ~ I popped the duck up off the base
  • Martha Stewart ink ~ Orange ~ I inked the duck
  • Gelly Roll Pen
I am so encouraged by your comments. Thanks for being so sweet!

Happy Crafting!
