Cardz TV 3-D "New Baby" Challenge

 Happy Friday my crafty friends!  Today starts another challenge over at Cardz TV.  The theme for this challenge is a New Baby.  (Picture heavy)   My project was inspired by a friend of mine who shared how to make this kind of card.  (Thanks Ann!)  For the "Jump for joy!" sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Toad-ally Awesome."  For the "So SWEET!" and for the "Big Congrats!" I used the "Ticket Talk 2" set.

The patterned paper is from Recollections.  To create the Onesie on the front, I used the Baby Steps cartridge and cut it at 2 inches for all of the layers. I used stickers mounted to acetate that I mounted to the inside flaps.  I created the bow with the WRMK Envelope Punch Board.  And of course, I used my favorite EK Success photo corner punch.  The scallops were punched using a 2 3/8 and a 2 inch scallop punch.  The white circle is a 1 1/2.  The white circle on the card is 1 3/4, and the yellow scallop punch is 1 3/4.  I located a tutorial in case you want to make one.  I am pretty sure you'll want to.  I know I'll be making more!

Are you ready to join our challenge?  Just create a 3-D project for a new baby.  Then head over to Mary's Blog to enter.  You have until noon EST April 3, 2014 to enter.  Mary will be giving a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner.  I hope you visit the blogs of my Design Team sisters to see what fun projects they have created.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really like to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
