Mod Baby Card

What a fun challenge was today on SCS!! I really enjoy making circle cards with 4" round coasters as the base. Plus it gives me the opportunity to use my circle scissors from EK Success - which is an easy way to cut circles in various sizes perfectly every time. For this project I cut two 4" circles for the top of the card - one plain patterned dp was adhered to the coaster front, then the second circle was scored 1/2" from one side (with my scor-pal), then glued down to the coast on only that 1/2" piece. Once the glue dries I attached 3 brads to form the card flap.



I used paper from Cosmo Cricket "Cogsmo" paper line. The sentiment and arrow are also from this paper pad. I was thinking of using this as a funky baby card for my Brother & SIL's new baby.... since I'm an Aunt now I'm always popping over there with a little something!


I made the scalloped edge with a small circle punch. Each circle was adhered to the back of the black paper, then faux stitched and a drop of stickles was added to the center. I also used the platinum stickles to outline the arrow. I also made this card for The Cat's Pajamas TCP Tuesday challenge - this time it was for a blue card - see Toni's Blog HERE.


Let me know what you think!

You TOTALLY ROCK!!! I love these cars you have made with the CP stamps. I just rec'd mine this week and I am going crazy copying these for kids cards. I love looking at your work on a daily basis and have had you in my Google Reader for some time now. I don't comment very often, (lazy). But these, knock my sox off. I hope you are submitting them to magazines for publication!!! Thank you, so much, for all you share! XO, Mimi
