Cricut Simply Sweet Baby Card with cut files

I decided to use Design Studio to create some baby word art to go on a card. The cartridge already had the "Love" with a Heart on it so I just added the Baby and the diaper pin. I made the cut file of this word art, including the shadowing around it, for both Expression and Baby Bug owners.

I used some American Crafts cardstock for the purple and pink areas and then the Glitter 4x6 Mat Stack (seen below) for the rest of the card. That little mat stack has a TON of cute papers that are just perfect for card making! I added some Stickles on the Baby Love and diaper pin in white (can't remember which white, though..oops!). I also inked around the edges with purple (wisteria) chalk ink and popped up the word art layer. Want to see something interesting? Here is the photo enhanced with my photo software (see below). I think it looks much different. The real card looks more like the first picture. Unless, of course, you prefer this one...ha ha! I had trouble getting a good photo since it's been so dark and stormy here today. In fact, we had a ton of hail and a tree in our yard almost got hit by lightning! YIKES!!

So, for Expression owners, click HERE to download the cut file.

Baby Bug owners, click HERE to download the cut file.

Coming up this week will be more cards and cut files as well as a summer themed word book with cut file! So, stay tuned and stay cool! Whew! It's hot out there!


  1. I am enjoying seeing your creativity with the new carts. Thank you for showing different things we can attempt. Because of your inspiration, I finally got DS out of the box and loaded. Now, trying to educate myself and take the plunge because I have that, " I want do that too!" attitude. Thanks for the push. Cathy

  2. Beautiful Card! TFS!
