Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
It’s so exciting when we are blessed with a grandchild or a “great” … they just fill our hearts. So today I made a quick & simple Congratulations … It’s a Girl card. It would be just as easy to make an It’s a Boy card too because I’m using the Bright & Beautiful Designer paper!
This is the same designer paper I used yesterday and WOW, this pack has 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets with 12 different patterns. This is the perfect party pack with the watercolor washes, stripes, stars, confetti, and more, you will be able to create cards and more for any occasion.
I started with the Bubble Bath base (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4″) and then chose my designer paper to match … I thought the one with the little pink bubbles/dots would be cute, and on the other side is the ombre pattern you see. I did cut one piece to 4″ x 5-1/5″ and the other to 4″ x 1-3/4″, all from the same sheet.
Once I secured those two pieces together, I added a strip of the Sweet Sorbet Metallic ribbon to hid my edge and to create some texture and a little bling for our new princess. (No … the are no new little girls blessing our family, but there will be a little boy in the near future ❤ ) Now let’s attach the card front to the base, and I just did that with my Stampin’ Seal. I used the Liquid Glue to attach the ribbon.
I created my greeting using the Alphabest stamp set, and then die cut it using the Stylish Shapes dies. I used the circle because of the little circles in the paper but because of the ombre style paper. I added a little bow to that with a Mini Glue dot and popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish the front, I added 3 of the Berry Burst Tinsel Gems/4 pack.
On the inside, I used a piece of scrap designer paper and then ran the ribbon on the inside to. This was layered onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock. The “Congratulations” stamped in Bubble Bath comes from the Wonderful Thoughts stamp set.
This cute It’s a Girl card is so easy to make, I just hope that delivery will be just as easy … we’ve been there!! lol Thanks for taking a time out from your holiday weekend to take a peek.
Have an amazing rest of your weekend.
