Well, I figured since I posted a little boy card, that I should do one for a little girl too. Start out with a white card stock base, and then choose two corresponding prints for the front. Rip the edge of the piece that will have the seem on top. Wrap a small piece of ribbon around the ripped piece and secure with glue dots on the back of the paper before you glue it down. I used a small metal heart brad on the ribbon, but you could use a little sticker or flower. I stamped "Baby Girl" directly onto the paper and then used a little metal frame to accent it. You could stamp it or print it on your computer and use "Princess" or whatever you want to make it age appropriate. Have fun!
For this cute car card start out with a half of a sheet of blue card stock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2). Fold it in half with one of the edges sticking out about 3/8 of an inch and then fold the edge down over where the two edges meet and glue it down to create an envelope. With the folded over edge on the back, glue the left open end shut. Glue on a strip of green paper and black paper, and add your cars cut out of paper and the button wheels. I used a white marker to make the stripes on the road and the windows on the cars. Cut a small semi-circle out of the front of the card on the end where the insert is pulled out.
Then for the insert where you'll write your message, create a stop light to put on the one end of your paper and punch a small hole and tie a ribbon around it so that it's easier to pull out. This will be your son or nephews favorite card!!!!

I found this black cabinet door a while ago. I painted the front part of the cabinet with chalk board paint.

My friend had a book themed baby shower. I was in charge of the table center pieces. I wanted to be creative. So I made these box hat towers using a book with old children poems.
It was a fun shower, and everyone loved the decorations and the cookies!

Here's how to make this card:
-First cut your black card stock in half and fold for the base.
-Cut out the green card stock to be just smaller than the front of the card and then rip off
one of the edges. Before you glue it to the card, finish everything else on the front of
-Glue the black polka dotted piece on with the top edge ripped.
-Wrap the black and pink ribbon around the bottom and secure with glue dots on the back
of the green.
-I crinkled up the white paper so it looked worn and then I inked the edges of it before I
glued it on.
-Put the small safety pin on and tie the pink ribbon through it with your charm attached.
I found these cute keys to use, but you could cut something out of paper or use a
flower or pretty much anything.
-Glue the green paper on to the black paper.
-Use a small hole punch to punch the holes for the eyelets and insert the four eyelets.
-Use thread, twine, string, or ribbon and insert through the holes and tie them on the insideof the card and you're done!
