Howdy! It’s Debra, glad to be with you today!
One of my favorite of the new July release dies is the Rubber Ducky set. It’s so cute! I kept envisioning the sweet ducky in pink and blue for a baby card and that was my inspiration for today’s project – a congratulations baby card for a little girl.
Here’s how I made it:
1. Fold a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of white cardstock in half to form a A2 size card base. Cut yellow pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 , ink edges brown and adhere to card front.
2. Cut another piece of white cardstock to 5 x 3 3/4. Die cut Congratulations on the top left using Congratulations Stand Up Helper. Trim top flush with bottom of word.
3. Cut pink pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 3 1/2, ink edges and adhere to center of Congratulations cardstock from previous step. Adhere to card front using pop dots or foam adhesive.
4. Die cut ducky and wing from pink Velvet Adhesive (for a boy, use light blue Velvet Adhesive).
Die cut beak from yellow cardstock, eye from white cardstock and bow (from Ornament Set 3) from yellow pattern paper.
5. Assemble duck. I also made a boy duck – isn’t he cute! I’ll be using this one for a baby boy card on my blog later this month so stay tuned!
6. Die cut banner pieces from Karen Burniston’s Lots of Pops in yellow pattern paper and plain yellow cardstock. Stamp and cut out letters. Adhere to banners then to white twine. (TIP: only add a small glue dot to the inner bottom of each piece in order to move and adjust the banners).
7. Add banner to top of Congratulations as shown using small glue dots in the corners. Tie bows and adhere to each end of twine.
8. Die cut white and yellow pattern paper flowers. Using a small hole punch, punch out centers from scrap of pink Velvet Adhesive and adhere to center of flowers. To create dimension, place flowers on a piercing pad and cup using a ball stylus or the back of a pen, anything with a rounded end will work.
9. To complete the card, adhere ducky as shown using pop dots or foam adhesive. Add flowers around the base of ducky using a small glue dot on the back in the center of each flower. By adding the glue dot in the center of the flower, the petals can remain cupped up.
Here is another picture of the completed card.
I hope you enjoyed making our pink ducky friend today. Using boy themed papers and the blue ducky you could easily convert this sketch into a baby boy card as well.
