Cricut: The Official Blog
Monday, March 28, 2011
Today's project is brought to you by the uber-talented Nana Susan.  Let's hear it for Nana Susan!  Woohoo!!  And don't forget to leave a comment today for another chance to win 1 of 4 Cricut Magazines that I'll be giving away this week.  See yesterday's post for a thorough review if you haven't already.

Susan made this adorable card and gift bag using papers from Cloud 9 Design - the Baby Boy line.  What is it about going to a baby shower that makes us want to go all out and bring the cutest gift???  I have no idea, but this would certainly get a lot of ooooh's and aaaaaah's before the gift itself even made an appearance.


The tag on the bag was made from the New Arrival cart, cut at 3", and the shadow was cut at 2 3/4". She originally cut the shadow at 3", but said it's a very fat shadow, and she wanted to tone it down a bit, so dropped the size. She used coordinating paper, a border punch and ribbon to complete the bag. Simple, yet fabulous!


The card is 5 x 7. "Kisses" was cut from the Sweethearts cart, and she just cut off the "Hugs and" part of it. The blue circle is from George, cut at 1 3/4", and the frog is from Animal Kingdom, cut at about 2 1/4". The ribbon and brad are from Stampin' Up.


Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what Wendy has in store for you!

Denise said...

way way CUTE! My sunday school class, well lots of babies arriving, my husband and I are the oldest of the class and are more then done with kids. but I still have showers to attend!

Harriet said...

Very cute cards but you must have several different cartridges in order to make the card - any possible other cart selections for a similar pattern - a frog somewhere else or a tag pattern on another cart? I love the way it came out but only have one of them - the George. Thanks - Harriet Vincent

Kathleen said...

Wow, Nana Susan!!! Love the matching card and bag - too bad I don't know anyone having a baby boy!!!!!!! However, I think I might scraplift that cute card design and use it on a layout for my son. He's 11-1/2 now, but he's still a precious little boy in my scrapbooks! Gotta get caught up, I guess!!! TFS
