It’s a Boy

Hi friends,

I saw this punch art baby card a while back on Pinterest and knew I would have to make my own version of it at some point…And I finally did! 🙂

It was super easy to make and I love the way it turned out! We called this toy a doughnut stacker and ours was made of wood – so fun when we were toddlers! We also had fun just putting the doughnuts on our little fingers and twirling them around – simpler times. 🙂

I used the die set below to cut my doughnut shapes. I think it is a set from Spellbinders, but it seems to have been discontinued. 😦 You could also cut strips of paper and round the corners with a corner rounder punch. I used a 3-1/2 inch circle punch for the base of the toy and a 1 inch heart punch.

To make the card, I die cut a small doughnut shape from green card stock, a medium one from red card stock, and a large one from blue card stock. I also cut a large one from kraft card stock for the peg that the doughnuts are stacked on.

I punched a 3-1/2 inch circle from kraft card stock for the base of the toy. I then cut it in half and trimmed a little off the bottom to make it flat. I attached a heart punched from red card stock.

I attached a piece of star patterned paper to a white card. Then I attached the 3 doughnuts to the peg and attached the whole piece to the card with foam tape. I attached the base of the toy to the card with foam tape also.

The sentiment stamp is one I’ve had for a long time and I’m not sure which company it is from – use your favorite baby sentiment. I stamped it with blue ink on white card stock and punched it with the Pretty Label Punch from Stampin’ Up. It is attached to the card with foam tape.

Such a sweet card for a new baby boy! Change the colors and sentiment and it would be perfect for a baby girl!

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
