Tall Baby Congrats


This week's Cricut Cardz DT challenge was to create a "tall" card. Tall being defined as a card that measures 8 3/4" x 3 1/2". Wow! So what to do and just how do you fill up that much narrow space anyway?

The first thing that came to my mind was to do something with blocks. Okay, great. What blocks? ........hmmmm.....How about baby blocks? And away I went.

So for this card I used the New Arrival cartridge. The cuts on the front of the card were doing using Nana's Nursery coordinating papers. My rattle was cut twice so that I could cut out the center and create a "shaker" which was filled with baby confetti.

I realize this is another of my simplistic cards but hey I don't really have much of a craft room to work in right now (long story) so I'm just excited to be able to get any cards created with my Cricut right now.
