Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you had a wonderful and safe holiday, and are ringing in the new year with cheer! In honor of the classic & iconic New Year's Baby, we've decided to show you a quick and easy card that you can make using just a few products. Keeping a few extra baby projects on hand can be great when you find out the stork just delivered a bundle of joy!

Products used:

1 piece of brown cardstock
1 piece of white ribbon

  1. Trim brown cardstock to 4 x 11" and fold in half to yield a 4 x 5.5" card
  2. Using the border on the Baby Boy Cardstock sticker, wrap it around the card about a 1/2" from the bottom and trim off excess.
  3. Punch out the Sweet Baby Boy tag, the blue star, and the swirls from the baby boy chipboard. Centering the tag over the sticker border, adhere with your favorite adhesive. Glue the blue chipboard star onto the top left corner of the chipboard tag.
  4. Place the onesie sticker in the upper center of the card. Using pop dots on the back of the baby bottle sticker, adhere to the front of the onesie as an embellishment.
  5. Glue the chipboard swirls on either side of the onesie, facing in.
  6. Finish of by tying a length of white ribbon around the fold of the card, and add glitter or bling if desired!
We love the modern look of the baby blue on the brown cardstock, but any coordinating color cardstock would work perfectly as a base. You could even make several different variations with different color bases, and save them away in your emergency card stash!
