Isn't Little One here so sweet?!  This week over at Cricut Cardz Challenge we are to make a card for a new baby using any cartridges we'd like and the colors green, orange, yellow and white ONLY.

I made a card a little larger than the A2 size cards I usually make.  This card size is A6, and I followed the instructions the Martha Stewart Scoring Board provides.  Just start out with a piece of cardstock 9" x 6 1/4" and score @ 4 1/2".  This will make your finished card size 4 1/2" x 6 1/4".

The papers for this card came from several different stacks.  Here's all the info:
  • Orange background paper from DCWV Indian Summer cut at full size for front of card which is 4 1/2" x 6 1/4"
  • Dark green mat (textured) from DCWV Ultimate Year Stack cut @ 4 1/4" x 6"
  • Green & white polka dotted mat from DCWV Nana's Kids (embossed) cut @ 4" x 5 3/4"
  • Orange ribbon from Joann's
  • Prima Flowers - Multi Bright from Michael's with added green rhinestone in center from Joann's
  • Cricut Cartridge:  NEW ARRIVAL
  • "Little One" cut @ 2" page 110 in yellow and again in white with Shadow Feature
  • Baby page 97 cut @ 3" and face drawn on with Ultra Fine Tip Black Sharpie
  • Diaper cut in white and colored with Orange Stampin' Up chalk
  • The little baby is popped up with foam squares
I hope you hop over and join in the fun at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week!  Happy Hump Day!

  4. So cute, Janis. Glad I wasn't the only Team #1 player. Don't you just love those cute little baby faces on New Arrival? I just got that MS scoring board yesterday and pulled it out of the package today. Thanks for giving your dimensions, I can make a note of it.

  5. Great card even with the challenge restrictions. Thanks for playing along with us.

  6. Love it!! That is so cute. I keep looking at New Arrival, but somehow, it has yet to make it into my house. That may have to change - but since I got Winter Frolic, Mini Monsters AND Sweethearts today, I won't be buying it tomorrow or anything... yes I am an addict :)

    Can't wait to see what you come up with next week...
