2 random baby cards I made

I made baby cards for some friends who just had a baby boy so I thought I'd share it here with you too!

The ducky card was made using the "New Arrival" Cartridge with my Cricut Expressions. I cut the bubbles out of the same cart and added Martha Stewart glitter to them to make them appear wet! The coordinating tag I made using the negative duck I cut out at a smaller size. Inked up a dauber and matched the cardstock as best I could. The large card I added a piece of paper that I fussy cut to look like waves. It's embossed with the Cuttlebug using the swirls folder and inked over with white pigment ink for a softer look. Here and there I added a touch of glitter so it sparkled just a bit! The ducks eye is a black pearl from MS too! Love her supplies so much!

The Stork delivering the baby boy is cut from the "Nursery Rhymes" cart. I also used my Expressions for this one. The two clouds were cut free hand from embroidery cloth for a textured feel. I layered the stork with grey cs to add depth. I cut a banner out of the same cart to look like an announcement across the sky!!!! Have ya ever seen those while you were at the beach? It reminds me of when I went to the Jersey Shore and the airplanes would fly by with special announcements on them!! I tied it on with thin white string.

Welcome baby William Ralph!!!
