Select two of your favorite prints. Cut a 5½"x4¼" piece from the first print. Adhere this to the front of the envelope.
Punch (or create with the help of your circle-making tool) a 3¼" circle from the white cardstock. Ink the edges. Cut a 2½" of pink ribbon; fold in half and adhere to the back of the circle. Adhere the circle to the center of the printed section.
Punch out a 3" scalloped circle from your second print and adhere this to the center of the white circle using adhesive foam squares.
Cut out a silhouette of a baby using your pink shimmer cardstock piece. Note: a silhouette can be found online or in your Cricut® cartridge collections. The dimensions of the silhouette needs to be approximately 1¾"x2-1/8". Distress the edges slightly with your paper distressing tool and adhere to the center of your scalloped circle with adhesive foam squares.
Repeat as desired.
Select your favorite card from the Recollections™ Animal Print box of cards. Tie a piece of ribbon around the bottom (lengthwise) and adhere the two ends in place inside the card. Cut out a “bow” from the pink shimmer paper, lightly distress the edges of the bow and adhere this in place on the ribbon. Insert the rivet in the center of the bow and secure it behind the front flap of the card.
Cut out an oval from the word print page that is approximately 3"x4½". Ink around the edges with the pink ink pad and adhere to the center of the card with adhesive foam squares.
Cut out a larger baby silhouette (same as the envelope, this time measuring 2-5/8"x2") and adhere this to the right side of the oval, ½" up from the bottom.
Cut out the word “BABY” (both the front and the back) using the blue shimmer cardstock. Note: when finished, the word should measure approximately 5"x1-1/8". Lightly distress the edges of the letters and adhere to the oval using adhesive foam squares, framing the left side of the word in the left side of the oval.
Repeat as desired.
•Instead of using a rivet and the paper bow, tie a bow with your ribbon on the front of the card.
•If you aren’t fond of tearing up a page in the dictionary, look through our open stock collection of paper for a word print to use in this space.
•Change the colors of the paper, card prints, or ink different sections to give each card a personalized look.
