Nautical themed baby block card

A collage of the front, back, top and bottom of the card

I had a blast making this style of card.  There are so many extra surfaces to decorate that it allows a person to use most of the image and sentiment stamps from one stamp set.  It stands up all on its own to allow the receiver to proudly display the handmade card you have so lovingly crafted for them.  Best of all, it folds down to fit inside a standard envelope.

For instructions on how to make a Baby Block style of card, see my instruction post.

This card was inspired by the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge #188. The colours required this week are White Daisy, Sapphire, Pomegranate, Glacier and Flaxen - all colours from the Regatta paper pack.

The card was made using the My Anchor (C1642) stamp set.

Postnote:  Oooh!  Not to brag (but I am), this is my first time winning an award for a challenge.  This card won the Emerald (1st runner up) Award.  I'm so proud!


  1. Well aren't you a clever crafter! I was amazed when you said it folds down to go in an envelope! Thanks for sharing your talents at Color My Heart!

  2. Fabulous card! I love this 3D card and I would love to make one myself. I can't find the instruction post you referred to--could you make it a hyperlink so we could easily find it please? Thanks for sharing this wonderful creation with us at the Color Dare challenge blog. Please join us again soon!

  4. I loved seeing your stair step card, I was making one for our DT Challenge this next week with flowers, and have another one made for a scene for my grandson who is a fishing have inspired me.
