Practicing Creativity

A card for baby's first Christmas

I subscribe to several card making and paper crafting magazines. I love it when they give gifts (makes me justify the expensive subscription prices). The main elements in this card were just such a gift with a recent issue of Complete Cardmaking.

The original 3D sheet by Mary Jane Harris was for a complete card front. I didn't find much challenge in that, nor did I really like the whole card design.


I cut the design apart, changed things around and added a bit more. A card with no texture just doesn't do it for me. I left the 'ribbon' though; it looks real, but it's paper. The burgundy polka dot paper is another gift; this time from Cardmaking and Papercrafting magazine.

Normally I leave the insides of my cards blank, but this time I included a sweet poem by Jon Bratton.

I've put this in the Etsy shop, just perfect for any first Christmas baby.
