Wobble Baby

This card is for the Action Wobble challenge at Wobble Wednesday.  This week's challenge is to do a baby item (card, LO, party favor, etc.).  I actually made 2 cards this week, but I didn't get pictures of the other card before my daughter took it to a shower for a friend of hers.  I used the same DCWV paper stack (8x8 Nana's Nursery baby girl stack) for both cards. The other one had a monkey on it (theme of the shower) instead of a onesie.   The solid green and pink are from a Martha Stewart 8x8 pack.  The onesie was cut from the Cricut Sampler cartridge at 3 1/2"

The card base is a piece of plain white card stock cut in half so it is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  The corners were rounded using my corner chomper.  The green was cut 1/2" shorter on each side and the striped piece was cut 1/2" shorter in height, but 1/4" shorter in width.  The green piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  The squirrel was punched from another piece of paper in the same stack.  I inked around the card and squirrel with MS inks.  The  squirrel is on a piece of foam tape.  The onesie is on an Action Wobble.  The buttons are from Wal-Mart and the stamp is from Hampton Arts (I think).  I had a little trouble with the stamp, but it didn't turn out too awful.  (I'm used to using firmer stamps and pushed down a little hard on one end.) The rosette is a piece of scrap ribbon that has stitching down both sides (we all have it).  I pulled the thread on one side from both ends and tied it together to make the flower and glued a button in the middle.  I used Scotch Quick Dry glue and my pink ATG as adhesives.  I stamped two little diaper pins and punched them out with the same MS scalloped circle punch as the squirrel and attached them to the inside of the card.


  1. Very cute card. The colors are perfect together and that little Squirrel is sweet. Great job putting it together.

    Have a great day!
