Baby Card Ideas for Manic Monday Challenge

Baby Card Ideas - Manic Monday Challenge -

It's baby card ideas for today's Manic Monday Challenge.  And the Happy Forest Friends Suite couldn't be cuter for this.

What is the Manic Monday Challenge?

Manic Monday was first introduced early in the COVID era.  In the beginning it was just for a month, and here are the original projects:

2020 Manic Monday Challenge Week 1

Manic Monday Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

I thought it would be fun to resurrect it for 2023.  No contests, just supporting and encouraging each other in our passion. 

The Stampin’ Up! catalogs are full of samples created by our team of designers.  Why not duplicate them or use them as a starting point for your card designs?  Each week I'll reference a project from one of the current catalogs and create a similar design based on it.

Today's Project

This baby card idea started with the project in the lower right-hand corner of Page 81 of the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog

I cut the paper pieces larger than shown in our inspiration sample, but I think they look great.  The three paper patterns came from the Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper Collection.

Rainy or Shine Sample Card -

Everything used to create this handmade baby card (except the circle) is included in the Happy Forest Friends Bundle.  You'll find that collection in the May 2022 – April 2023 Annual Catalog  on Pages 46 and 47.

I stamped the bear, owl, and tree and then cut out using the Happy Forest Dies.  I stamped the card sentiment on some scrap Basic White cardstock and then cut it out using a circle die from the Stylish Shapes Dies.  A few Brass Butterflies were added for a little more whimsy.

Here is last week's Manic Monday Challenge, Card For a Friend.
