She's Having A Baby ~ with Cyndy G.

Having a baby is such a joyous time for a family.  I have had and continue to have a great deal of joy watching my children grow but I admit I love the "baby stage" the best.  For me there is nothing better than rocking a baby while they sleep on your shoulder.  Today I have a project to share that I made for very special members of our SVG Attic family, Mike and Kenzie.

3d paper bunny and baby card

I love the soft baby blues.  I used some older Making Memories, Pitter Patter paper I had for the bunny and the stunning paper on the card is Maja Design, Vintage Baby.

3d card with teddybear, rocking horse and carriage

For the base of the card I used the Step Card SVG Collection.  
I modified the width of the right side slightly so it would look more like a dresser.

To make the dresser I used some basic shapes.  I used the rectangle for the dresser and drawers and interstate sign for the molding on the bottom of the dresser.

The carriage and rocking horse I used are in the SDS Rockabye Baby Cards kit.
The teddy bear is in the JGW 3 Stockings kit.

I just love this JGW 3D Button Jointed Bunny.  I wanted to soften his features so I used Brown for the eyes and nose.  I would recommend this kit to anyone wanting to make an impression with paper crafting.  He is worth the time.  I have made two of these so far and I think I will make more!

If you want to try one with a pattern paper take your time to think through the direction of the pattern on each piece so you can configure it the right way on your cutting mat.

He even has a cute little tail!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project as I had making it.
Congratulations Mike and Kenzie!

Do what inspires you,

  1. These are fantastic! I love that you invented that step card. Ingenious. You really nailed it with those papers you used for the bunny. It reminds me of the striped fabric that the inside of our feather pillows were made with when I was growing up :) Congratulations Mike and Kenzie!

    1. Thank you Beth! I didn't remember about this fabric on feather pillows until you mentioned it. I bet that's why I love it so much, it reminds me of my pillow from when I was a child!

  2. That paper does look like pillow fabric from yesteryear! Both projects are absolutely beautiful!

  3. This is absolutely STUNNING!! Love every piece you made. I am sure Kenzie and Mike will too :)
