Baby Crib Cards

Hooray!  I have been on vacation for a week now- with one more week to go!  The weather has been great!  It has been hard to play in my craft room with all the outside work that I wanted to get done.  But this morning I decided to finish these 2 cards that I have been working on a little bit at a time.  I was inspired by a bunch of crib cards I saw on Pinterest.  It seems they have all been made by "cut files".  I don't have one of those ( not sure I know what that is) but I do have Tim Holtz's bird cage die.  I took 2 of those and overlapped them a bit to make the crib part of the card. 

I bought the ribbon on the bottom of the girl crib from Joann's.  I am thrilled to use it since I have had it for some time.  The giraffe, bear, baby, bottles and pacifier are all Sizzix dies. 
Now I have to admit I used a Jolee sticker for the mobile on the Boy card.  It was so adorable!  I decided to make my own mobile for the girl card.  That is a Spellbinder umbrella die. 
The cards do fold so you can mail them.  I am sure the postage will be greater since I added so much stuff to them.
Here is a picture of the back of the card.  These were fun to work on!  Now back to my gardening!  Oh, I am having a yard sale this weekend too!  Wow, I have forgotten how much work those can be.  But it is fun to meet and talk to people who come to the yard sale.  The weather is supposed to be great too!!  Have a great weekend!

  4. oh, what beautiful cards/gifts these will make for new parents! You have the most wonderful talent for figuring things using a birdcage die for the crib slats - who else would've thought of that! Good luck on your yard sale - wish I was there to participate (by buying, not helping, of course!) lol
