Welcome a new baby girl to this world with a beautiful handmade card. Use symbols associated with little ones, like a cube, bear and duck, and bring some joy to the parents of this bundle of joy. You can also use this idea for a little boy. Just change the colors to hues of blue.

Steps:

  1. Score the pink marbled cardstock to create a card sized 5 x 6 inches.
  2. With the fold at the left, centre and glue the pink floral cardstock to the front of the card.
  3. Trace and cut the cube from three different cardstocks and glue the cube to the front of the card.
  4. Add an alphabet sticker to the front of the cube.
  5. Trace the outline of the cube with the glitter glue and allow to dry thoroughly. Tip: Use a hairdryer to dry the glue quicker, but use the coldest setting of the hairdryer.
  6. Glue a piece of pink lace to the top of the card and use stickers to spell the word "baby."
