Baby Card

A really simple card that can be adapted for boy/girl, pre-baby/post baby or even birthday!

Stamps: Year After Year, Cheer & Wishes
Card: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana
Ink: Mellow Moss, Barely Banana
Seasonings: 1/4" White Grosgrain Ribbon, Blender Pens, 1/2" circle punch.

- Make a card blank from whisper white (9cm x 18cm folded to give 9cm square). Stamp the elephant onto another piece of whisper white with Mellow Moss. Use Blender pens and a dab of Barely Banana ink to colour in... (Tip: with the ink pad closed squeeze the lid gently onto the pad inside. When you open your pad the inside of the lid has picked up a little ink and can be used as your palette for colouring!)

-Trim to size and knock off the corners with the 1/2" punch. (Tip: turn your punch upside down and use the markings on the cutting edge to line up your paper.)

-Trim a piece of Barely Banana to size and (if needed using a Stamp-a-ma-jig) stamp congratulations.

- Trim a pice of Certainly Celery card to 8cm square and trim the edges with the circle punch as before. Wrap a pice of ribbon around the Celery card and glue this to the front of your card blank.

Assemble the other elements as shown, tie a cute bow and stick down.

Thanks for looking!
