Baby Shower card and gift bag by Designer Patty Folchert

Need a baby shower card and gift bag anytime soon? Here is a cute set made from a Hampton Art/Bella Blvd. stamp set and Bella Blvd. papers for one precious baby girl.

Baby Shower card and bag by Patty Folchert

The gift bag itself is super easy, just grab a kraft bag and some patterned paper. Cut a wide border strip from 12 x 12 paper, cut two if your bag is as long as mine was. Then border punch the edges, I used an EK Success border punch. Then align the two strips to fit across the bag as shown and attach with adhesive. Then using a Fiskars Heart punch I added nine coordinating patterned paper hearts and attached them with adhesive. That was all there was to the bag, just finish with some coordinating tissue paper. 

The Card is attached to the gift bag using a decorative shabby chic hanger. The card itself was made from two different Bella Blvd paper collections: Baby Girl Cutouts and Birthday Girl papers. The elephant was fussy cut from the cutouts page and set aside. Then I stamped the sentiment using Bella Boulevard Sand & Surf stamp set in pink ink onto white cardstock and cut banner tips. Next I stamped flowers in pink ink onto light pink pattern paper on border strip for right side of card. A chevron strip was added to top of card and a wider chevron strip was attached to the bottom left of card. Then a stripe border was added on top of bottom chevron strip as shown. The darker pink rectangle of pattern paper completes the base of the card. Next attach the elephant using 3D foam dots to the card front. Then add the Bella Blvd flag to elephant’s trunk as shown. Finally add the pink gemstones to flower centers to add some bling.

There you have it, a baby shower set you can be proud to give!

Lullaby & Good night,
