There’s nothing better than making a beautiful handmade card when a family member or friend has a baby. This cute duck card can be made if your recipient is having either a boy or girl, for a girl simply change the colour scheme and use the ‘girl’ die that comes in the pack instead of the boy one.

How to make

  1. Cut a piece of white cardstock to create a 14 centimetre by 15.5 centimetre tent card. Using the M Scallop Edge Border cut a decorative edge to the front bottom of the tent card. Cut two pieces of White Pearl Cardstock to 15.5 centimetre by 4 centimetre, two pieces of blue card to 15.5 centimetre by 4 centimetre and one piece of blue cardstock to 15.5 centimetre by 10.5 centimetre.
  2. Using the M Scallop Edge Border die, cut a decorative edge to the bottom of all of the pieces. Using the Graduated Dot Border, emboss along the scalloped edge of the 15.5 centimetre by 10.5 centimetre strip.
  3. Using the Large Dot and Small Dot Embossing Folders, emboss along the scalloped edge of the two smaller pieces of blue cardstock. Layer up the pieces from the bottom in the following order – small dot border, white border, large dot border, white border, graduated dot border and mat together ensuring the pieces are distributed evenly matching the scalloped border on the front of the card. Wrap two lengths of blue ribbon to the top of the piece and mat to the front of the card.
  4. Cut an 11 centimetre circle from white pearl cardstock. Cut a starlight circle from white pearl cardstock and mat onto blue cardstock. Trim around the edges and mat onto the white circle. Apply adhesive to the bottom half of the circle and mat to the front of the card, overlapping the top edge by approximately 3 centimetre.
  5. Cut baby boy from white pearl cardstock and mat onto blue cardstock. Trim each piece separately to create a tag outline, and mat behind the top right of the overlapping circle.
  6. Cut the duck die from white pearl cardstock and colour using alcohol ink markers. Colour a piece of pearl cardstock with the orange pen, cut to the size of the wing and mat behind the duck wing. Mat onto the front of the card. Finish with blue pearls.
