Under the Sea Baby Accordion Card

I have been asked to make several cards in the past, but this is a first, I was asked to make a baby card with a shark theme. Hmmmmm I’ve never really thought of a shark theme for a baby card. I was sent a couple of photos of babies room and sure enough it had a shark/ocean theme (there was also a picture of a whale 🐳) sooooooo this is what I came up with, and I have to say it turned out pretty cute.

“Cheers to you” Beachy Birthday

Here is a beach themed card that I made a little while back for a friend who loves her beachy vacations, so I thought she would enjoy this card. She enjoys her rum & coke so that is what Rocky the Crab is enjoying as well.

“Jolly” the Mischievous Mouse

Love this little mouse, and in this card, the little stinker is running away with a Christmas light. I thought that it would be fun to make an interactive card and have Jolly the mouse actually be able to scurry across the card.

So this card was so much fun to make but turned into quite the challenge when I decided to make 50 of them, there were a few challenges along the way but I did get them all done and in the mail 🙂

Fall Baby Scrapbook pages

Here are a few more pages from a baby book I had made for family friends. It is the fall and Halloween pages.  I call it a growth chart book. I also give a Teddy bear with the book and for a year, every month and holiday the parents take a photo of baby with the bear and then they have a record of how much baby grew in their first year. Other pages can be found here https://mymessycraftroom.me/2018/08/31/monkey-fun/

“Hoppy Birthday”

So this little cutie actually dances in the waves, as you can see from the photo he moves from side to side (he has a pendulum type mechanism). This style of card is a little thick for mailing but he is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. To see a card with a similar mechanism check out “Snappy Birthday” from August 11/18.

“Monkey Fun”

To mix things up today I thought I would post a scrapbook page, this was a page from a book that was a baby gift for a friend. I call them growth chart books, when the book is given it is given with a stuffed bear, the recipient is supposed to take a picture of the baby with the bear every month and place the picture on the labeled pages. When the year is up the baby will have a growth record in photos.
