Baby Banner Card


I love making baby cards! This one is for the music teacher at my school. She just had her 2nd baby girl. I had fun making this with my favorite Papertrey Ink stamps and dies: the Banner Builder set. I wanted to stamp out "BABY" on half inch circles, but my Expression and my Imagine do not cut out circles at that size. They come out as ovals! Does anybody else have that problem? So instead, I went on a hunt for a half inch circle punch, but they don't seem to exist. Luckily I was able to find the ekSuccess Circles Large Edger Punch. It's a border punch, but the circles that come out that would normally be discarded are the perfect size!

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Raspberry Fizz Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Simply Chartreuse Cardstock
3 3/4" x 5" "Pink Patterns" Patterned Paper
Sweet Blush Cardstock
Raspberry Fizz Wool Felt
"Banner Builder" Stamp Set and Dies
Raspberry Fizz, Chai, and True Black Ink
ekSuccess Circles Large Edger Punch
