Special Delivery Stork Card

Our family had a busy weekend, so I only got to craft a little here and a little sad!  But I did finish this card -- another baby-themed project!

Card Details:
  • Card Base - 9" x 4"
  • Papers - clouds and dots by American Crafts - Everyday; cardstock by The Paper Studio
  • Cricut Cuts - stork and sentiment from 3 Birds on Parade, page 70
  • Cuttlebug Embossing - bird's wing with Victoria; blanket with Swiss Dots
  • Other - inking with cyan Colorbox petal point ink pad and butterscotch Le Plume II marker; ribbon is CelebrateIt Basic Narrows; cloud background, stork, and sentiment on pop dots

Our MOPS group was asked to take meals to a new mom in need, so I'm including this card in the box I'm taking.  I thought it would be nice to include something unexpected and special.

I also wanted to play with some of my new cartridges, and this is my first time to use 3 Birds on Parade.  Even if I'm not crazy about birds all the time, this cart has great "non-birdy" sentiments for common occasions.

I tried to keep this card simple, but I'm not so sure I succeeded.  Oh well, I'm still submitting to CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC13, since they did inspire me to make a long card.


  1. Great job on this- I really love it! :)Amy

  2. How cute! I like how you embossed the bird's wing - very clever use of the Cuttlebug. :)
    I would vote that this is definately a clean and simple (and fabulous) card. :)

  3. Great card Jessica.I think you did keep it clean but with great touches like your embossing.
