Simple Baby Shower "Gift" Card

Here is my very first card project I made using my cricut and cuttlebug. A friend and co-worker is expecting her second child soon and we’re having a shower for her at work on Friday. I decided instead of getting her something she may not use or need – I would get her a gift card so that she could use it for diapers or other odd and ends she will need once the baby arrives. Even though this is a very simple card – it was a little time consuming. LOL….I know I will get faster the more familiar I become with card making.

For this project I used the following:

  • royal blue and baby blue cardstock for layering by Design Studio
  • blue/brown striped paper by Design Studio
  • cuttlebug swiss dots (outside of card) and tiny bubbles (inside of card) embossing folders
  • white tulle for the bows in the corner
  • baby carriage hole punch for lower corners
  • hole punches for the white dots
  • Cricut cartridge, New Arrival for “It’s a Boy” and Circle with feet
  • Cricut cartridge, Celebrations for the scalloped circle
  • blue crayon for the shading around the circle
  • white crayon for squiggle lines
  • pop dots to make the circle and feet “pop out” as well as my signature inside Ü

Inside the card I made a “pocket” with cardstock, embossed it with tiny bubbles using my Cuttlebug and attached it around the sides to prevent the gift card from falling out.

Again, simple and fun to make. I hope my friend likes it.
