Guest Designer: Melanie from Everyday Cricut- Baby card made using Plantin Schoolbook

Hello, everyone!!

I am so glad Pam asked me to be a guest designer on her blog today! She asked me to make something using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and I was more than happy to oblige!

Today's card is a 5" x 5" card that would be perfect for a new baby. I made mine for a baby boy, but with a quick color change it could easily be for a baby girl.



I used the cut on page 81 in your handbook and with the use of my handy dandy Gypsy, I welded a star in the middle.



Then I stamped this sweet little sentiment I got from Verve on a circle. I then backed that circle with a piece dark aqua glittered cardstock and popped it up with pop dots in the middle of the star.



I added a little bling to my sentiment because aren't most thing better with a little bling!




Here is the down loadable cut file : http://www.4shared.com/file/FCUWS2kN/little-star.html

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Also, thank you so much Pam for inviting me!!

Very sweet blue baby card. Great work, Melanie!

DoriG said...

So sweet and pretty. I can see it as a baby boy's card and easily, a baby girl's card. And with a gender neutral card, it's just right for either.
