BABY card for Challenge

I have decided to participate in daily challenges to get used to creating every day and to force myself to go into my scrap room.

This card is for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #43
The directions were to make a card for a new baby using any carts and the colors green, yellow, orange and white only.

I have also entered this card at Charisma Cardz Challenge for their Anything Goes Challenge, and at PaperTakeWeekly for their Animal Challenge, and Totally Gorjus for their Wild Thing Challenge.

This is my submission:

Cart(s) Used:
New Arrival Cartridge

Paper used:
White cardstock
Yellow and Green from a stack pack
Orange cardstock

Orange CM marker
Green CM marker
CTMH leaf stampad
Cuttlebug with dots folder

I went sans Gypsy and pulled out my New Arrival cartridge. I cut the Giraffe in shadow and both layers and drew on the face and spots. I cut the Baby blocks from the Orange and white and used the leaf stampad to color the letters. I also used the leaf stampad to lightly go over the embossed paper to bring the dots out some more.
The giraffe is yellow and the background is green, but it is hard to tell them apart.

I hope you enjoyed my card!


  1. How cute is this??? Great job! I love how you took on a challenge. I know I'd love too do some of them, but I fight for time as it is. Yours is so adorable.

  2. Adorable! I need to start doing some challenges to keep me using my stash.

  3. Amy this is really cute. I love the colors in the baby blocks. I have the exact opposite problem as you. It's hard for me to come out of my craft room.
