How To Make A Baby Grow Card0
Nicole here to share a pretty and cute card showing how to mix up Papermilldirect card with patterned paper to make a new baby card. For this one I used:
- Papermilldirect Pastel Pink Plain card
- Papermilldirect Hammered White card blank (A5)
- Patterned paper
- Silhouette cutting file from Printable Cuttable Creatables
- Circle and scallop dies
Even though my patterned paper was not from a 'baby' themed set I simply picked one that had a pink tone that complemented the Papermilldirect paper perfectly. This meant that when I layered them together they worked like they were made for one another! I used Papermilldirect card to mat the patterned paper, and die cut a circle from the patterned paper. I created a scalloped frame from the Pastel Pink card to surround this opening in the patterned paper. I then used the cut file to cut out the baby grow. I cut this from the patterned paper, but it stands out nicely because the circle peeks onto the Pastel Pink matting layer in behind.
I added a sentiment, stamped in pink ink, to give a slightly tone on tone effect. Then I added some bling and foam mounted the sentiment banner. The baby grow is also foam mounted.
The Pastel Pink card is the perfect complement to the patterned paper, and combining the two makes this a perfect new baby girl card. It also means you don't have to go out and buy a paper pack just for the occasional baby card, so it means more money for the more important crafting goodies, like more Papermilldirect card!!
