It’s no secret that I LOVE my Cricut!! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sleeping Pooh and Friends Baby Cricut Card. This beloved character from the Hundred Acre Woods has been a favorite for many years now. I love classic characters that are popular for generations.
I haven’t made any baby cards for quite awhile, and I thought this sleeping Pooh Bear would be perfect. The Disney Pooh Font Set Cricut Cartridge has all of the baby Hundred Acre Wood characters.
There are five baby Pooh Bears, three cute Tiggers, two adorable Piglets, and two sweet Baby Eeyores. It was hard to choose which one to use for this card, but I settled on the sleeping Winnie the Pooh.
Supplies Used to Make this Pooh and Friends Card
- 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock for the base*
- 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of red cardstock for the background*
- 1 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of printed paper with foil stars
- 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of striped paper
- 3″ Sleeping Winnie the Pooh from the Disney Pooh Font Set Cricut Cartridge*
- Stampin’ Up scalloped border punch
- Cuttlebug Machine
- Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder
- Small red adhesive rhinestones
- Two Small yellow flowers
- Glue Dots**
- Pop Dots or Dimensional Tape
- Inside of Card – 5 1/4″ x 4″ red cardstock, 5″ x 3 3/4″ white cardstock, thin strip of printed paper
*I used White Canvas, tomato, sunshine, and licorice cardstock by Bazzill Basics.
**I use Glue Dots when I’m attaching textured paper. The extra stickiness works much better than regular scrapbook adhesive. Tape Runner adhesive can flatten the texture. If you need more information about what type of adhesive to use, visit Card Making and Scrapbooking Adhesive
How to Make this Winnie the Pooh Card
- Fold the white cardstock in half to create the base of your card.
- Use the punch to add a border to the red cardstock.
- Run the red cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot folder to add a dotted texture.
- Using Glue Dots, attach the red cardstock to the base.
- Attach the star paper to the red cardstock, so that you can see the scalloped edge.
- Attach the striped paper where the red cardstock and star paper meet to cover the seam.
- Now that you have the background finished, attach the Winnie the Pooh to the card using pop dots or dimensional tape for added height.
- Use a glue dot to stick the flower to the upper right corner.
- Embellish with red adhesive rhinestones. I put one in the center of the flower, and three in the lower left of the card.
- For the inside of the card, I attached the red cardstock to the base, then added white cardstock to the red. I had a small scrap of striped paper left, and it was the perfect size for decorating the inside. I finished the inside with a yellow flower with red rhinestone center.
This cheerful Cricut baby card could be used for a baby shower, welcome baby, or baby shower invitation. You can easily change the colors and papers to create a unique card by following the general layout that I used.
