Baby Wobble-Head Card

Baby Wobble-Head Card

The papers on this baby card coordinate with the Baby Crib Box Card project I posted yesterday.  (I will be sending both of them together.)

The baby image was Googled and “traced” with my Silhouette software.  The baby’s head is mounted on a spring, and it wobbles when the card moves. (Yes, the blurry head is supposed to show movement! lol)

The spring is called an “Action Wobble Spring” and is a plastic spring with adhesive on both sides so it sticks to your card project and to the element you want to wobble.

I used the following paper and card stock for this project: Core’dinations April Lovely, Colorbok Heidi Grace Designs bgirl buggy (double-sided), Core’dinations light pink plaid, Gina K bubblegum, ivory and white.  I inked all the edges and stamped the greeting with Gina K bubblegum ink.  The greeting is from the Gina K Designs “Bundle of Love” stamp set.   The baby’s hair is made with a few strands of yarn and a ribbon, and I added a few pink pearls to finish it off.

Inspiration for this card came from two places.  First, I used the same baby (as a boy) with the wobble spring on a card I made a bit ago.  Here is the card that I had previously posted in my StampTV gallery.  (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)

Secondly, I used a sketch from the StampTV Sketch Book which is under the “Freebies” section on the StampTV Site (HERE – scroll down; the sketch book is a little below the photo of the swimmer).  This is a fantastic resource for layout ideas when you are stuck!  You may need to be a member of StampTV to view this Sketch Book, but membership is free.   (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)  Here is the sketch I used as a starting point for my card project:

  1. I know that you mentioned in your post yesterday that there were a lot of images in this file. this one is so cute and it looks easy. Using the Wobble on the head is genius! I have been so busy making cards, that I have been amiss on my comments. Please forgive me, I will do better. .
