Baby Booties Card

Challenge #12
Shower the Baby:
Create a project that has something to do with a baby shower. Example; invitation, card, gift, baby album etc...

I made a simple baby card, using the New Arrival cricut cartridge. What is great about this cartridge is that it has a "card" feature, great for making quick and easy cards that look super cute.
I used DCWV "The Glitter Stack" for the card, the the solid glitter stack for the booties, the bow is just white cardstock.

This card is on page 107 of the New Arrival handbook, I used card 2 feature and the shift key.
To add just a little extra to my card; from the same page I cut out two booties at size 1 1/4" (one bootie I used the "flip" key). The bow was cut at 1", it doesn't line up perfectly on my card but cutting the bow at 3/4" was just too small. Even though the booties and the bow are just a little larger than the size in the window of the card, I really like the look it gave.
I added thick white thread for the stitching on the booties, and pop-dots to lift them off the card, a small glue dot in the center of the bow for the adhesive.


To close off the window I cut a piece of yellow cardstock at 5" x 4" and glued the the inside of the card.I hope you'll join us for the challenge at FCCB and show us your baby creations, and come see the wonderful baby ideas the design team has created -HERE.
