I no longer make many baby cards, as I haven't had much of a need for them recently.  But it is always smart to have a couple on hand -- just in case.  So today I decided to use the Happier than Happy Bundle to restock my stash.  It seems like the perfect bundle to use for a baby card.

It has been quite a while since I made one of these Diagonal Fun Fold cards.  In fact, it has apparently been so long that I couldn't even find my Fun Fold Template for this design, so I had to start from scratch today.

The diagonal on the card base is the easy part, but then getting the two pieces of angled designer series paper to fit correctly was a little more difficult for me.  But I figured it out and to make it easy for you I have created a tutorial with all the cutting and scoring dimensions.  I hope you will download a copy and make use of it!

My friend Bob the Bear has brought a friend today to also welcome the new baby.  Her name is Olivia the Owl.  They are having a lot of fun as they dance through the mushrooms.  Maybe they are eating some along the way.

The Happy Forest Friends 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper makes creating with this bundle so fun and easy.   I love the design of the paper behind Bob with the trees nestled in the pretty woodland floor covered with leaves and mushrooms.

There are also all kinds of images in this paper collection that can snipped out and used on projects, but today rather than cut them out from the designer paper, I stamped Bob with Soft Suede Ink and Olivia with Basic Gray Ink, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  Olivia's tree trunk perch and the mushrooms surrounding it were all snipped from the designer paper.

The sentiment on the "inside" of the card is one of my most favorite baby sentiments that I have.  It is from a very old sentiment set that I probably will always keep called Occasional Quotes.
