sweet baby cards | pebbles inc.

Hi Friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun little baby card I created recently, a lullaby spinner card!  Actually, I made TWO cards - one for a boy and one for a girl...because my silly friend didn't know if she was having a girl or boy, and I wanted to be prepared either way!  She ended up having the sweetest little boy - so now I'm prepared for someone to have a cute little princess!!  Anyway, the fun thing is, you can make pretty much the same card, just swap out a few papers (pink or blue OR make it gender-neutral with yellow, teal, etc.), and you can be prepared either way!

I wanted to create something a little bit different, and after seeing a spinner card one day while perusing the internet, I knew that's what I wanted to do!  It was easy!  Let me show you how I did it.
I started by cutting a standard size card base (4 1/2" x 5 1/4") from white cardstock and a piece to go on the front (4 1/4" x 5"):

Here's a sneaky little trick for adding stitching to the front of a card.  Just stitch on the patterned paper - NOT the actual card base!  I added a simple straight stitch with white thread.  Of course, this step is optional.  After the patterned paper is glued onto the front of the card, nobody will be able to tell they aren't actually sewn together.  The only giveaway will be the nice smooth back without any stitches or knots!

It’ll work just like before: 
  • Boxes are all different and all random – they may include: patterned paper, cardstock, stickers, misc. embellishments! I am not going to take photos of all the product in each box (thus the term “surprise boxes”), but I promise there will be a lot more than $40 worth of product in each and every box. A lot more. Much of the product is brand new in it’s original packaging. Some things have been opened and I’ve used a portion (some of the stickers and such). :)
  • $40 per box (which will include flat rate USPS shipping) Unless you are local, of course, you won't have to pay shipping and we can arrange for you to pick up your box.
  • US Shipping only (sorry international friends – it just gets too complicated (and expensive) for these boxes)
  • I will accept payments by PayPal only (or cash for locals, of course)
  • E-mail me if you’re interested…I will sell them on a first come, first served basis
  • The boxes are packed and taped and ready to go…so as soon as your payment hits my PayPal account, I’ll print your label and ship off your box!

Thank you!
