My husband's cousin and his wife are due to have their first baby any day now. What perfect timing to take advantage of the Typecast Creative Baby Cartridge Challenge!
The blog owner of Typecast Creative is Curt Jensen, an illustrator for Provocraft. This challenge required using Curt's cartridges or Cuttlebug folders to create a baby project. I chose a Word Collage embossing folder and an image on Campin' Critters!
I embossed the green layer and rubbed over it with a foam pad that was covered lightly with white acrylic paint to help the raised areas stand out. (Yes, the finger is the best applicator of paint!)
We won't know the gender of the baby, so I chose my colors to be as gender-neutral as possible. I also wanted the card to coordinate with the gifts I purchased. (I know: buying baby gifts does violate the Crafters Code but time is of the essence because I have procrastinated!!! I blame Pinterest.)
These were my cuts for the card:
- Card base cut from white cardstock - 12"x7.75" folded down to 6"x7.75"
- Teal layer - 7.375"x5.625"
- White cardstock layer - 5.125"x6.875"
- Green polka dot layer - 6.75"x5"
- Moon from Campin' Critters (cut on the Expression) and extra stars - 3.25"; small star dangling from hat was cut at 2.75"
I think these images would also be perfect for baby onesies. For my tutorial on making baby onesies with the Yudu and Yudu Cardshop, click here. To see all my paper and Yudu projects, check out my Project Gallery, or click here.
I am looking forward to seeing all the baby projects made for this challenge. All projects will be posted on Typecast Creative March 12, 2012. Be sure to check it out!
