Cutie Pie Retro Kids Cards

Cutie Pie Retro Kids Cards and a Little Announcement

Hello, Friends!  I have such a fun post to share with you today.  Many of you have seen me share projects made with beautiful digital collage images from my favorite Etsy shop, Polly’s Paper Studio.  Well, Ginny Nemchak, the amazing artist and owner,  has asked if I’d be on her design team!  Are you kidding me?  Play with Polly’s Paper goodies?   Twist my arm!   So today, I’m sharing these Cutie Pie Retro Kids Cards.Retro Kids

These images are available for instant download and you can get all the information HERE.

Baby Boy Retro Kids 01

I love baby boy cards, and this little sweetheart with his brown and white puppy has stolen my heart.  Most of the papers I used on these cards are from K&Company Brenda Walton’s Dollhouse Scrapbook Pad. It’s ancient, and I found it when I cleaned out the Closet of Shame this past Saturday.  It kind of made all that dust and mess worthwhile!  I added brown micro gingham ribbon , a denim patch, and loads of stitching to this sweet card.

The inside is stamped with Fiskar’s “Make a Wish” stamps.

Retro Kids Baby Girl 01

If you make a baby boy card, you just have to make a baby girl card, right?  I trimmed this one out with goodies from my stash and added pink and white Baby Animals Cotton Blend Ribbon.

The inside is finished simply with artwork from the paper pad, a strip of ribbon and a stamped sentiment.

Birthday Kiss Retro Kids 01

This little dollie is getting a birthday kiss!  I added a perky bow made with bright pink gingham ribbon. The rosettes are made with Tim’s mini rosette die and topped with one of the little envelopes from the paper pad and a vintage button.

The inside of this card has a gift card pocket and tag that matches the little purse on the front.

Blue Jeans Retro Kids 01

I added a frayed denim panel and a burlap string bow to this cute little boy birthday card.

And every little boy needs a little red wagon!

Fancy stitching forms the border on this card, along with another rosette, Spellbinder die cuts and more pretty pink gingham ribbon.  Because gingham ribbon is so perfect with cutie pie retro kids cards, that’s why!

I stamped the number border along the top, thinking you could just circle the number that matches the birthday girl’s age.

Hugs and Kisses Retro Kids 01

Last but not least is this darling Hugs & Kisses card.  My double bow is made with Bright Pink Plaid Ribbon and topped with Bright Pink Polka Dot Organza.  It makes me think of a party dress circa 1960!

I had a blast working with these printable images!  I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them.  If you love Vintage and Retro designs, you owe it to yourself to browse through Polly’s Paper Studio, because it is loaded with oodles of delicious paper treats! I can’t wait to share more Vintage and Retro goodness from Polly’s with you!

    Firstly … I’m not surprised you’ve been asked, I’m only surprised that you’re not on every paper makers list of ‘needs’ on their design team list, because you are Card Maker Extraordinaire!
    (aka: The Fairy Godmother from the first made Cinderlla film). :o)

    The papers and your creations from said papers are all so deliciously sumptious! The little ones are so vintage and you can’t help but smile at them. They bring a warm glow to the heart. So perfect.

    Congratulations Kathy on being snapped up for their design team. They couldn’t have found anyone more perfect for their creations.
    Love ~ Cobs. x
