Hello crafty-friends, Chris with you here today, back with another „circle-card“. A baby was born in our neighborhood a few days ago, so I decided to create a baby card with these adorable foxes from the stamp set Word Buddies Woodland stamp.

I used:

First, I stamped all images on alcohol marker friendly paper and colored them with alcohol markers (e.g. Copics …). Then I cut them out with the coordinating dies. Since Hello Bluebird come out with the Nesting Circle Dies I love to create circle cards, because the circles are available in several sizes, so you can choose your perfect size.

For my card base I cut out a circle and did some ink blending with a turquoise color combo of Pinkfresh inks ( Ocean Breeze, Aquamarine) and a  cloud stencil (just for some little dimension). For a softer look I prefer to use a layer of vellum over the ink blending. In this case I used some vellum clouds – cut them out twice and stick together and arranged it on my card base.

With the Dies I also cut out a frame and the sentiment Hello. The small alphas have a perfect size for sentiments. Both I colored with the same color palette like the foxes.

To finish the card I arranged all images and glued them down … that‘s all.

Hope you like my „little one“ and maybe I could inspire you to create your own baby card.

Thank you for stopping by – happy crafty time
