A Cute Baby Card for Make My Monday #123

I’ve been wanting to create a black, white, and yellow card for a couple of weeks. However, I’ve gotten side-tracked with other ideas and challenges and kept putting off a card with this color combo. That is, until this challenge when everything came together in my head.

Sweetest Baby

I just love this stamp set for baby cards! It’s already obvious that I love fun fold cards, so this card just seemed like the perfect combination.

Here’s my card:

I’ve used a similar fun fold before, and you can see that card here. This one is less detailed, but adorable for a baby card. I saw this card on posted on Pinterest by Courtenay Heuston.

So Saffron seemes like a pastel yellow that would work well for a baby card. The So Saffron gingham DSP pattern really works for this card. I used the (now retired) Golden Honey striped DSP for this card, but any contrasting DSP would work as well.

Wildly Happy

I could have used one of the four adorable mother/baby stamps from the set, but thought the panda pair would coordinate well with my color combination. This pair could have been colored, but I like how light the card looks without coloring. I’ve thought about coloring them, but really feel the resulting focal image would be too heavy.

The Wild About You stamp set also contains the sweet sentiment I used on the front and inside. One of my most used die sets, Stitched Rectangle dies, allowed me to crop both rectangles on the front. The stitched borders really add a finished look to the card. I couldn’t resist adding the adorable bees from Welcome Easter. The cuties also run across the bottom of the front of the coordinating envelope.

Since I used dimensionals on the panda panel, I could wrap the black ribbon around it. A cute little square knot would be perfect. However, I soon learned that the square knot wouldn’t work on the left side of the pandas. It would get in the way of using the sentiment as a way to keep the panda panel closed if I left it on the left side.

Putting It All Together

The measurements for the card bases below are in inches:

Card base – 5.5″ by 7″, scored at 4″.

Flip open panel – 6″ x 4″, scored at the 3″ mark leaving a 3″ x 4″ flip open mini card.

Margins are personal preferences based on your card layout.

If you want the mini-card to stay closed, the front sentiment does need to be either on the top or bottom left hand corner. I used dimensionals on three of the corners of the sentiment block. In order to allow the mini-card to tuck under the sentiment, make sure to leave the fourth corner free.

As Always, Thank You for Visiting!

I love to read and reply to comments. If you are so inclined, please feel free to leave a comment. If you’ve created a card based off this fun fold, color combination, or bundle, I’d love to see what you created!

Have a Peachy Day!
