Hand-Lettered baby card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cute baby card made with combining the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle and Animal Outing! It’s been a while since I made any baby or shower cards, so I thought this would be the perfect time to make not one, but two versions of the same card! The card that I am featuring is more of a boy theme, but I will also show you at the end of the post a girl themed card! 

For this card, the base layer is this design from the Country Club Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Use the second largest Stitched Nested Die to cut out a piece of Garden Green cardstock and the third largest to cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

2. Cut a 5 ¼” piece of 5/8” Burlap Ribbon.

3. Use the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies to cut out “little one” from Night of Navy cardstock.

4. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.

5. Stamp the kangaroo in Early Espresso ink, color in the noses with Light Basic Black Stampin’ Blends, the koala with Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, the ground under the kangaroo with Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, the kangaroo with the Bronze and Ivory Stampin’ Blends, and cut out with the coordinating die.

Use Tear & Tape to adhere the burlap ribbon to the DSP base layer and the layered Garden Green and Whisper White cardstock to the burlap ribbon. I used liquid glue to adhere the letters to the Whisper White cardstock:

The punched out sentiment is adhered with mini dimensionals and I used liquid glue on the kangaroo’s tail and a mini dimensional at the head and foot (the part that is overhanging off the layered cardstock) to adhere to the DSP and cardstock:

This completed piece is adhered to a Garden Green cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, the sentiment from Praiseworthy Prose is stamped in Night of Navy ink and a ¾” x 4” strip of coordinating DSP is adhered along the side:

Here is the girl themed card that I made, the only difference is that I used Perennial Essence DSP, Very Vanilla and Blackberry Bliss cardstocks, and Blackberry Bliss ink:

Aren’t these super cute baby cards?? I know that this is not something I would typically have an abundance of on hand, but it’s nice to change up the cards that you make every now and again, and you have at least one of each on hand! The Hand-Lettered Prose Dies really make personalizing your cards to easy and fun!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
