Baby Bear Squares Flip Cards
Hello friends. I am back today to share two of the cards I worked on last weekend, Baby Bear Squares Flip Cards. I made two of the cards, one for a girl and one for a boy.
I used the sizzix card die set pictured above, Sizzix Square Flip its Card Triple Framelits Dies, which can be purchased for $17.81 at Amazon by clicking on the name of the die set. I love the versatility of this die set and I find that I am often on the lookout for 1 - 1.25 inch square stamps to use with the dies. I picked up this set of baby bear image stamps late in the summer after I found out that we were expecting our Granddaughter. I also found some tiny thank you stamps to use with this die set.
I used another set of sizzix dies to cut the little flowers. I have two flower set tiny dies that make great embellishments. I thought the little flowers went well with the baby girl card.
My baby boy card is not finished yet. I am awaiting the naming of my friend's future grandson so that I can add his name vertically down the left side of the card front. Right now we just call him New Baby. That is probably NOT the best long term name choice!
As you can see, I used the same papers, only the blue version, and the same stamps, only colored with blue markers. I really like both versions of this card. But when you start with a great die and stamp set, is it easy to create nice cards.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my Baby Bear Squares Flip Cards. I still have several layouts to share with you from my weekend away!! So be sure to check back soon.
