Look who's turning 7! Card made using NEW Baby Steps cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a birthday card for my little one that I made using the NEW Baby Steps cartridge. This cartridge of coarse is going to be thought of as a baby cartridge, but that is so not true. There is a really great font on it and it has some really fun shapes like this scalloped oval. I know that this oval will be very useful for those card makers out there. Also, it would be great for scrapbook page titles or journaling spots.

I used Close To My Heart paper.
I cut the 7 out at 2". The oval is cut out at 2 3/4".
The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by this week!


Have a great weekend!

I love this card...so cute. I like how you used the new "baby" cartridge for a seven year old. Shows that we need to look beyond the name of the cartridge to see how much it has to offer.

Denise-Scrapmouse said...

Oh what a sweet & cute card! You little one will love it. Thanks for sharing.

Deneen said...

Great card for a boy!

Jennifer T said...

Great card! I was expecting something a little reminiscent of baby but you were right! It's great!

Angela said...

This is an awesome card. Thanks for letting us know to think beyond the cartridge titles too.

Cynthia B. said...

Thanks for showing us different possibilities with these cartridges!

Linda said...

Thanks for reminding us to look beyond the title sometimes, You have found some great things hidden on cartridges..

bettie said...

love the primary colors

mimikat33 said...

The versatility of this layout makes it double the usefulness, if that makes sense. You can use it for a boy card, girl card, or the layout as your said.
Great ideas as always

Karen said...

Wow, I would never have thought that a cartridge labeled "Baby Steps" could be used to make cards for someone older. Thanks for sharing!
