I got this idea for the card from browsing for pictures for baby greeting cards.

I saw ideas for it on the following pages:

I made this card for a little baby boy in mind:

Take a blue coloured greeting card

I first did  the front of the card by pasting the "painted wall" with a white strip to serve as border.

Then I cut the top part of the baby rattle (using a sihouette of a rattle) to serve as window for the inside of the card.

I then finished the inside of the card before doing the remaining outside for ease of working with the card.

For inside of card :

1.  "Painted walls":  Use two seperate blue themed papers.  Cut to size and paste.

2.  Use baby rattle to cut window for the sneak peak (optional) before decorating the left wall of your baby room.

For the left inside:

1. Add blue ribbon as a border, decorate with beads

2. Add chest of drawers; toys; clothing; photoframe. Use glitter glue to add sparkle or definition.

3. Decorate window (if applicable)

 

For the right inside:

1. Add blue ribbon as a border; decorate with beads

2. Add painting / scripture  against wall in wooden frame

3. Add baby cot (I made it by using a template)

4. Add baby toys

5. Add finishing touches with ribbon/glitter glue

 

For the front of the card:

1. Decorate the rattle by using gel pens, blue ribbon, glitter glue and some beads. 

2. Paste the rattle on the card.

3. Add any other finishing touches as desired.

 

Colour scheme could be changed to pink for a little girl!
