A Baby Card

Today I'm presenting a baby card I've made for my niece, who's just had a baby boy who she's called Hudson.

We're all so happy for her and her husband and we're sure that he'll grow into a wonderful person as part of their loving and caring family.

This card is CASEd from one created by Therese Calvird.

I wanted my top layer to look more like clouds so cut the white using a scalloped oval die and made some air-foam moulded characters instead of the stamped image she used.

I'm going to use an acronym created by Darnell Knauss. My scalloped oval die, the moulds and the Hello die are all NBUS. (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) I'm making it my mission over the next couple of months to use more NBUS. (Darnelle has inspired me!  ; )  )

They say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, so I hope Therese likes what I did to her card.

Bye for now,


  1. I'm sure Therese will be over the moon with how brilliantly you have CASEd her adorable card, Janelle!! This is just the sweetest card for baby Hudson!! And go you for using all that NBUS!! Now it's BUS!! Enjoy your day and thank you for coming by to the Playhouse! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I adore it Janelle and I know your niece will too, loving the gingham in the background it's one of my faves on baby cards (and I haven't used it in ages). And as for NBUS I think I have some of that somewhere round here lol, I'm going to take a leaf. Thanks yet again for your inspiration!
