Baby Girl Building Blocks Card

This is a card I put together for a grandbaby of a very sweet friend who recently became a proud and happy Gramma. I guess I am now in the stage of life where all my friends are joining me in retirement and becoming grandparents too!

It's been awhile since I've made a Building Blocks card, so I decided it was time to try one again. 

This is the first Building Blocks card I've done for a baby girl, and also my first time stretching it to a six block card so baby's name, "Kalena" would fit. I had to keep the blocks to 1 inch in height to avoid ending up with a card that would seem way too huge. I used  Make the Cut Design Program and Memo true type font to create the cutting file for the alphas on the blocks

3 panels on this card to decorate! I created cutting files for the giraffe family on the front using safari animal clipart from My Cute Lobster on Etsy and Doodlebug in the Lori Whitlock Store.

On the inside of the card, paper pieced teddy also from Lori Whitlock Store, ducky is from an old Quickutz die, and onsie and bottle are from Cricut Baby Steps cartridge.
The Building Blocks card makes fun baby cards; I especially like that I can add baby's name to the blocks to personalize these cards and make them extra special. I used the tutotrial and video tutorial found over at Splitcoast Stampers, here.

Yes, it seems everyone is becoming a grandparent....hooray! The baby card you designed is sweet and pretty. We will be welcoming a grandnephew soon so your card gave me lots of good ideas for a baby card. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
