Family Fun Time - Card Style

I had to make a card for my older sister, she just became a grandma! So I decided to make it non traditional. It started out traditional, and then took a turn when I saw the the little calendar.

The base of the card is from a DCWV card pack, I love these cards, bigger than the traditional card. 5x5. A little more postage is needed, but worth it. I cuttlebugged the white piece with Tim Holtz folder.

The baby was born July 6, so with the eraser of a pencil dipped in ink, and stamped on the 6. Such a clever little idea I learned from my StampinUP lady and friend, Susan!

It's a boy is cut from Stork's Delivery cut and 2" and layers 1 and 2 as well, page 1.

The tag is cut from Tags, Bags and Boxes cut at 4.50 pg 90.


  1. Nice touch to put in the date of birth of the baby!

  2. I love how you added other elements such as a tag and calender to your card. Love it! The embossing looks great too! Congrats to your sister! Our first Grandchild is due to arrive this later fall. I am soooo excited!!! Have a great wknd!!
