The cards I would like to share today are made with the "Little One" collection. This is a bright and modern baby range with lots of cute little graphics and appropriate baby colours. All of these cards I'm sharing today were made using the card panels designed by Kaisercraft. Did you know Kaisercraft makes 12x12 paper that is specially designed to help you make quick and easy cards? In the Little One Collection there are two 12x12 papers to look for. One is called P1888 Chloe and the other is called P1889 Cooper. Here is a little picture of them both:
To make cards using these papers I suggest buying three 12x12 sheets of each colour. This allows you to cut and layer the bits and pieces and really make the cards "pop".
You will also need the following Kaisercraft supplies:
PP974 Paper Pad - Little One | CT832 Collectables - Little One | CS224 Clear Stamp - Little One |EM926 Lace Pack - White | ST908 Epoxy Stickers - Sea Breeze | ST911 Epoxy Stickers - Monochrome | ST912 Epoxy Stickers - Candy | T314 Double Sided Tape 6mm | T303 Foam Tape | T322 PVA Craft Glue 125ml | CD101 12x12 Weave - Coconut | IP719 Black Ink
I also added some little googly eyes to some of the animals.
To make each of these cards simply follow this basic sketch below. Cut and layer the templates for the background and centre shape with mounting tape.
Cut a strip of paper from the 6 1/2 Paper Pad for the horizontal strip behind the centre shape.
I added some lace or a strip of paper or a die cut element along the top and bottom of each horizontal strip. A little tip is to only apply the lace or die cut element on the part of the card that is showing with just a little tiny overlap. This saves our supplies. No point wasting good lace underneath paper where nobody will see it!
I added a little doodling with a black felt-tip pen to define some borders of the elements. I rounded the corners of my card bases to match the rounded corners of the card panels.
I added some Epoxy stickers for a little bit of added dimension. Have you seen Kaisercraft's Epoxy Stickers? They come in lots of different shapes and sizes. I think the stars and love hearts are my favourite.
I added some Collectables to the front of the card with Double Sided Tape.
The matching Clear Stamp Set for this range is perfect for making baby cards. It is dedicated to sentiments! These sentiments are spot on! Just what you need for decorating the inside of your card.
I chose two strips for the top and bottom of the inside of my card. I doodled a little border to tie it all together. Then I stamped a sentiment onto the middle of the card base and decorated with a few Epoxy Stickers.
With this collection of Baby Cards made and in your stash you are sure to be prepared for all the little miracles that come into your circle of family and friends. A hand-made card is a lovely way to welcome a new little one into the world!
