My Little Red Wagon Cardmaking Inspiration

Hi friends!  I’m Debi Adams and I am happy to be on the blog today. Can I just say, “I LOVE babies!”  Guess this new grandma is very happy to have a baby in the family!  And speaking of babies, my latest collection “My Little Red Wagon” is centered all around babies and children.  Today I have created two cute cards.  One is for a new baby or baby shower and the other is for a child’s birthday. Can’t wait to show you how to make these.

Do you remember those birthday cards in the 60’s that actually had the birthday age “button” you could wear? That concept is exactly what I was thinking when I designed this specific stamp and die set.  I love being able to put the child’s age onto the birthday card.  (Wouldn’t the numbers make great cupcake toppers too?)

This is a super easy card to make.  I used a 4 ¼” X 5 ½” card base.  Attach two strips of patterned paper at the bottom.  Die cut the bunny, star, number, circle and clouds from white cardstock.  The bow was die-cut from patterned paper.

Apply ink to the bunny’s ears, stars and number using the foam applicator on the Tool ‘n One as indicated.  Add other details with a black pen.

Stamp sentiment onto top of card with black ink.  Attach bunny, star, clouds, bow, circle and number to card base using foam dots.

The fun part about this stamp set, “Love You to the Moon and Back” is the space located between the words “Love” and “to”.  This is left blank so you can personalize it with “you”, “him” or “her”.

Begin this card by embellishing the smaller cardstock (3 ¾” x 5”) using the Tool ‘n One with the Foam Applicator and ink.

I found that adding color to the die-cuts really makes a difference.  I used a little bit of yellow to shade the stars and the moon.  Also, these dies were designed to help you add the details.  Simply color in the face where indicated on the die with a black pen. You don’t have to be an artist to look like one!  Stamp the sentiment with your own personalized word onto the cardstock then attach the embellished dies to the inked mat base using foam dots. Wrap twine around mat.  Adhere mat to card base (4 ¼” x 5 ½”) using foam dots. Finally add Nuvo drops.
