Penny Roll for a New Baby


I was asked to make a new baby card, they had seen another penny roll card that I had made so I decided to adapt it to fit. The baby I cut on my Cricut machine using the New Arrival cartridge along with the sentiment. I did the baby in really pale pink card & then chalked over him so that his skin looks all pink & perfect, the shorts are also inked round the edge for definition. I also cut the baby on shadow to mount under the pink baby to add more depth.
The sentiment is also cut on normal & shadow to let it lift from the page.
I added the bounce line with a Marvey Pen & added a few gems.

The insert I printed on the inside & the outer part so that a message peeked through the slot, all that needs to be done now is to tilt the card left & right to watch the baby roll....lots of smiles on the horizon I hope.

Oh my goodness . . . I've never seen a card like this before! Is there a tutorial for it? I'm curious as to HOW you made it! The baby is so cute (I don't have new arrival for my Cricut), and the patterned paper you used is adorable! The recipients of this card are going to LOVE it!! Wow!
