A card for Cora

Hi Everyone, Well I have a baby card today. Shocking Right? This is for by new granddaughter. This was a fun card to make. I missed the CTMH class to learn how to make it but I figured it out and I thought it was so much fun. You use one 8 1/2 by 11" sheet of paper. Then you fold it into quarters and cut one of the folds. Next you fold the first quarter back diagonaly. The one behind that is folded the same but a little bigger. I used scrap paper to figure it out.
The buggy was cut with my Cricut. All the details are listed below.
The first tag is printed with advice for our new little girl. On the second tag I wrote advice from Grandpa which you can read if you click on the picture. It is too funny.
The last picture shows how it looks from the side and the folds. The picture really doesn't do it justice. This is the prettiest card I think I have ever made.










After I finished the card I look to see if it worked for any challenges and it did.

Wow Linda, this is a gorgeous card! What a lucky granddaughter you have. I love the pearls along the edge of the carriage! Great job figuring out the card without attending the class...I still don't know if I could do it.

I'm off from school tomorrow so I'll hopefully be creating then. After a week of vacation, there more snow coming tomorrow and MANY without power...including one of the schools. Oh well!
