Cricut Sweet Treats Cartridge or 3 inch Scalloped Circle Punch
Cricut New Arrival Cartridge

First, I chose the yellow cardstock from the paper pad and folded it in half.
From white cardstock, I cut out a 3 inch scalloped circle using the Cricut and the Sweet Treats cartridge. (You can also use a 3 inch scallop circle punch for this part)
I then used glue dots (regular glue works well too, but I love the convenience of glue dots) to stick the white 3 inch scalloped circle onto the top half of the card.
I then used the Imaginisce baby giraffe stamp and stamped the center of the scalloped circle. Other cute stamps work well too.
I used the pebbles scrapbooking chalk to color in the giraffe and add a bit of color to the scalloped circle. It was my first time using scrapbooking chalk so it didn't quite turn out, but I hope to get better at it with practice.
Using the brown cardstock, I cut out the word "baby" with my Cricut and the New Arrival Cartridge. I set the size to 3/4 inch to cut some and then set it on 1 inch for a couple more sets. I cut some using the scalloped edge as well as plain edge so I could mix and match the letters, and gave myself way too many options! This is a great little "shape" from the cartridge, because it cuts out the blocks and you can use the letters from inside the blocks as well!
I ended up using the 1 inch block for the first letter and 3/4 inch blocks for the rest. I mixed and matched the scalloped and plain edge blocks just for fun.
I decided to make a ribbon tie closure and used my Fiskars 1/8 rectangle hand punch to make the holes.
and tied a bow!
