I love this image - such a happy baby!

For this one print:-

The Adorable Baby motifs onto quality white card
The pink miniatures sheet onto quality white paper
The pink pram background onto quality white paper

To make the card, cover the front of a white A5 card blank with the pink backing paper using double-sided tape.

Cut out one of the 12cm tall motifs and a greeting and mount both items onto larger pieces of silver metallic card with double-sided tape before trimming round with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.

500d6a5444f0cnew-baby-girl-card-closeup.jpgTo make the scrapbook album, cut out a cover and 8 pages or so from the sheet. The cover is double-sized to enable you to fold it over to create a double-sided cover so that you can open it and still see pink inside. Fold it in half and stick it together with double-sided tape or glue stick, trimming to neaten if necessary. Don't fold it to form the album at this point as this will create too harsh a crease - you'll need a nice rounded spine to create the scrapbook album effect.

Stick the pages in individually using narrow double-sided tape on the left-hand side of each. I've used the spring out of a biro to complete the album - if it's not quite the right size, stretch it out (or squeeze it in) a little. Stick with a little tacky glue. Fold the cover around the spring when the glue's dry - it will probably spring open again so neatly tie some pink shoestring ribbon around it to keep it closed. You'll still be able to undo the ribbon to see the inside of the album once it's on the card.

For the rattle, cut out the long pink triangle from the sheet and roll it round a cocktail stick, starting at the big end. Try and keep the roll more or less central as you go, then fix the end with double-sided tape or a dab of tacky glue. Thread a few pink seed beads onto some silver 20 gauge craft wire, then bend to form a little circle with 2 'tails' of wire. Ease some tacky glue into the handle with a cocktail stick, then push the wire into it. Form the other end of the rattle in the same way but without the beads.

The birth announcement is simply cut from the sheet with a craft knife and ruler.

Arrangement the motif, greeting and miniatures onto the card and when you're happy with the arrangement, stick the motif and greeting into place with sticky pads. Add the scrapbook album and birth announcement with double-sided tape and the rattle with tacky glue.
