Baby Card with the Cricut Expression 2 (with video)


Don't you just loving making baby cards?  I made this one for a friend who recently had boy/girl twins.  The adorable strollers are from the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge that is built into the Cricut Expression 2.  


My sweet sentiment is from My Creative Time's All Star Baby stamp set.

Watch the video below to see how I used my Expression 2 to make this card, including some tips on moving images around the mat.


Recipe:

Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist Cardstock
Core' dinations Black Cardstock
Bazzill White Cardstock (for Imagine print)
The Paper Studio "Safari Untamed" Patterned Paper
My Creative Time "All Star Baby" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink True Black Ink, Vintage Button, & Rustic Cream Button Twine
ColorBox Cat's Eye Chalk Ink

This card is precious. And I LOVE the fun patterns that you used on the strollers. Terrific job, I don't know if I dare to watch the video, I'm afraid you will try and talk me into buying an E2 and I REALLY shouldn't do that at the moment - LOL! Hugs- Glora

Adorable card, the baby carriages are so cute. I agree with you, they look better without the color behind the wheels. Love the tutorial, your teaching skills really come through. TFS!
