March 2014 Card Swap - Baby Cards

Welcome! This post will feature the cards from this month's swap.  

The challenge was to create a card and envelope with a BABY theme, incorporate a chevron pattern and NOT use the colors pink or blue...

We had 5 ladies this month rise up to the challenge!  These cards are so CREATIVE...  you will be inspired!


This card is so pretty - needs to be displayed in the baby's room!  The focal point on the card in the black baby's dresser on a polk-a-dot background of green and black.  Check out ALL the intricate details on the dresser with baby supplies...  hanging baby onesies, teddy bear, baby blanket and bottles - all cut-outs from the Cricut machine.  The dresser opens up to the card part - featuring the chevron embossed on the inside!  Such a special card!


This card  features a yellow chick (transformed from the SU's owl punch) with a fun yellow "plume" of feather for hair!   The color scheme of yellow & green features a woodgrain chevron printed paper and a textured banner with "Bundle of Joy".  With an multi-dot eyelet punched edge and stamped inside - finishes this card to perfection!


This card is packaged perfectly with a chevron printed sack that holds the card-tag inside.  The outside features a variety of brown schemed paper cut-outs; - a large B for baby cut from the Cricut and is embellished with hemp string.  The decorated stamped layered card-tag inside, also created in a brown color scheme, features a multi-string tassel and "Congratulations" tag and room to include your own written sentiments on the tag surface. This is an elegant card for any baby!


This card features a red/yellow color scheme with a touch of white punched eyelet trim and red ribbon.  Along with colored brads and an embossed chevron paper - the punched art monkey finishes the front of this card with a smile!  Here's a link for the "monkey" layout!  Inside the card carries on the color scheme, eyelet punched edge  along with red ric-rac embellishment with stamped baby icons and wording.  This card is a cute greeting for any newborn!


This card has the ultimate W.O.W. factor for the homemade card.  This card is FABULOUS!  It's a "card in the box" and it features a fold-up card that fits into an envelope - upon opening up - the card blossoms out with a variety of stamped, colorful icons and sayings that will sure to please anyone opening up this sensational card!  With a variety of colors, textures and patterns - including the chevron printed paper in the envelope - this card was the one that received the most - oooohhhhhs and aaaahhhhhs of the evening!
