Hooray baby card

Good morning,

I am up today on the Papermilldirect blog with this card:

I love making baby cards and also using Papermilldirect slate coloured card, so I thought it would be nice to make a baby card with the Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm with a hint of sparkle!

The products I used are:

Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Natural Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm

Silver Sparkle Card 280gsm

Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml

Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm

You will also need:

• Die cutting machine

• Card front panel die

• Hooray die

• Elephant stamp

• Copic Markers

• Gems or sequins

To start with I made my card base. I used a piece of Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm which I trimmed down, scored and folded in half. For my die cut panel I run a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm through my cutting machine and adhered this down onto my card front using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then die cut the word hooray using some Natural Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm a few times and adhered these words together using some more Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then die cut the word once more using a piece of Silver Sparkle Card 280gsm. This was then adhered onto the back of the other pieces and I slightly moved this so that the glitter shows through. I adhered this onto my card front with some more Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I then got a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and stamped the elephant image. I then used my copic markers to colour him in. After cutting the stamp out I adhered him onto my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish off the card I added some gems which I adhered down using some more Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

You can change the colours on this to make a baby girl card too.

I hope you have fun creating this card!

Have a lovely day!

Vic
