Welcome Baby Carley card





My cousin's baby is due on Feb. 12th and this is the card I made for the gift I am taking with me that day- scheduled C section- and I get to hang out with her son while they are having her. I worked really hard getting the punch for the edge as you can see, I was so frustrated I just had to take a picture to prove how many times I tried to line this darn piece up! lol

Very cute card. I like the scalloped border and circle.

I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say you are having a hard time getting your punch lined up. But if you mean that you are having a hard time getting the two edges to come out the same (like both half scallopes or whatever) here is a tip for what I do: I cut my cardstock to the finished width. I measure that and divide in two to find the half way point. I draw a pencil line on the back of the paper at that point. I turn the border punch over so that I can see through and line up the center of the punch on my line then punch. Now you can flip the punch back over and punch as usual. This will assure that your edges will come out the same on both sides every time. HTH
