Is there a new bundle of joy arriving into your life? I could not resist reaching for the Jillibean Soup new shaker card system to create a baby card. It paired up nicely with a Hampton Art wood block stamp to make this sweet baby card.
Bundle of Joy card by Patty Folchert
Beginning with the plain card base I cut four border strips as shown from Summer Red Raspberry Soup papers in pink and aqua patterns. Then I sewed them onto the card base with white thread with my sewing machine. Then I grabbed one of the new kraft banner tags from the “Tag You’re It” collection and stamped the sentiment in brown ink. Then I added the color floral strip on the end and sewed it on as well. The banner tag was then attached to card with foam dots.
Then I added the plastic shape shaker. Next I filled the shape with sequins in gold, pink and green colors with a few wood veneer stars sprinkled in. Then I added a pea pod doily shape to the back of the shape attaching it with the adhesive already on the shape. Then laying the shape into the front card opening I added adhesive to the doily and attached to inside of card. That gave me a nice pink backer on the shape and a cute scalloped edge on the inside of the card.
That is how I created a sweet welcome baby card for a very special baby girl named Addison. With one color change from pink to light blue, and two different paper choices this could very easily adapt to a baby boy card too.
