‘Welcome Baby’ Cards – K-Mart Craft Revisited, Part 4

Another simple handmade card idea to welcome the new baby. You can find everything you need in the Craft Department at K-Mart. Come up with your own baby themed designs or you can download my pattern for three card designs for free. Thank you to my sister, Cathy who inspired me with the ‘pram’ card that she designed.

Here is what you will need to purchase to make these cards. You will also need some scissors, a glue gun and some double sided tape (the normal variety and the mounting tape which has a bit of thickness to it). See pictures below of the materials and equipment you will need.

Here are some simple step by step instructions with photographs to show you how to make them. Have fun!

Trace the shapes onto some plastic sheeting with a felt pen and carefully cut them out.

Here is how you make the pram card:

Choose a background from the 30 Patterned Papers pad. On the back measure a rectangular piece 9.5cm x 13.5cm or make a template out of card or plastic and draw around it. This is handy if you are planning to make a few as it save some time on all the measuring.
