Sentimental Saturday – Baby Girl Card



Hi! Brenda here from Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker. For today’s Sentimental Saturday post, I’ve made a baby girl card in anticipation of the birth of my granddaughter.

This is an A2 size card and measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The base was cut from an 8 1/2″ x 11″ ivory cardstock. I cut the cardstock in half, which gives me two bases. The pink layer is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. The background behind the stork was cut at 4″ using the oblong and shadow cuts on the Elegant Edges cartridge (page 33). The patterned paper was something I had in my stash. Baby Girl phrase and shadow were cut using the Tiny Treasurers cartridge (page 68). I then used pink glitter on the baby girl phrase to help it pop more. The stork and baby were cut at 3 1/2″ using the Tiny Treasures cartridge (pages 54 and 55).

Here is a screenshot of my Gypsy showing the stork and baby cuts, as well as a picture of my papers on my Cricut mat.


I completed the front of the card with four pink buttons from a Cute As A Button kit I bought from HSN. I also added Queen and Co. twine to the top of the blanket.

For the inside of the card, I cut the pink cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″, the patterned paper cut at 2 3/4″ x 4″ and the white cardstock at 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″. I added a Queen and Co. heart gem. The sentiment is from the Close To My Heart New Arrival stamp set.

All solid cardstock is Recollections cardstock.

I hope you like my baby girl card. Please visit my blog at to see more of my projects. I’d love to have you visit.
