Welcome Baby!

Good morning my crafty friends!  Today it is design team day over at the Celebrate the Occasion Challenge blog! The challenge is to make a card for a new pet or new baby.   Head on over to join in the fun!  A winner will be selected and entered into CTO's monthly drawing.  March's prize will be the Rock Princess cricut cartridge!!

This card is from the same sketch as one I did a few days ago.  Both cards even have a Chick!  I thought the scalloped circle shape was so fun that I made a few cards like this. 

For the grass:
First, I used a circle the same size as the white inner circle that the grass is attached to as a template. 
Next, I welded the grass border from the Paper Doll Dress ups cartridge (1 inch) to a circle that had been stretched so that the bottom was the same as the circle you are using for a template, but didn't stick up past the grass blades. 
 ** There may be an easier way.  I just couldn't get the grass to weld to the bottom part of the circle and then cut out at the top.  If you have an easier way, let me know!!

The card folds along the top of the back of the card:

The chick was cut at 2.5 inches (Create a Critter cartridge).  The stamp is from My Pink Stamper

I used the Peachy Keen face stamps, but had a hard time with the beak.  Tip:  It is much easier to use the face stamps on smooth rather than textured card stock!  :-)

The Crinkle Ribbon is a color and technique that I have been experimenting with and isn't available yet.  The flower I made using the Mother's Day bouquet cart and my Gypsy (love my Gypsy!!!)  Click HERE to see a video showing how I made this flower.

Have a very happy day!!
