DIY Baby Girl Card Ideas With Stickers + Freebies

Dear Friend,

I’ve got the invitation for the first birthday celebration of a daughter my close friends. In addition to the gift I prepared for her, I decided to make her a birthday greeting card as well. 

Eventually, I had two baby girl card ideas and wanted to share it with you.

In general, these baby girl cards are easy to make, yet some require a bit more.

Feel free to make changes and mix and match different materials to come up with something unique.   

I have created two free sticker printables for baby girl card ideas (baby pink dress and stroller) which you can download by subscribing to my blog in the form at the end of this post and get them right away. 

Here are my baby girl card ideas: 

BABY GIRL CARD IDEA #1 – PINK DRESS IN A FRAME

baby girl card idea 1

This baby greeting card is totally girly, I know. Although it looks a bit complicated to make it, it’s not. The steps for making it follow the materials you’ll need. 

Supplies you need for the pink dress in a frame baby greeting card: 

  • Pink Cardstock (This is for the base)
  • One Dress Sticker & Four Flower Stickers 
  • Glue (Any Kind)
  • Pink, Gray & White Sheets of Paper 
  • Paper Clip & Wire Cutter (This is for the mini dress hanger)
  • Pen, Scissors & Ruler 

STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL FOR PINK DRESS IN A FRAME BABY GREETING CARD (See photos below):

Step #1 – Make the basis for the card

Take a pink cardstock and fold it in half. This is the base of your card. 

Step #2 – Cut out the gray frame 

On the gray sheet of paper draw preferred frame shape which you will add in the middle of your card. Depending on the size of your card make the measures for the gray frame. In my case, I measured 5 mm from the edges of the card base. It can be wavy like in my case or rectangular if you like it better.

Step #3 – Cut out the pink & white small middle frames

Use the second pink cardstock to make a small pink frame. Measures depend on the size of your card. I took a quarter of the folded pink cardstock as a measure.
Then, use a white sheet of paper to make a smaller frame within that pink one. I was measuring 5 mm from the edges of the small pink frame and after that, I made waving edges. You can leave it straight if you find it better that way. After you finish with cutting, glue up those two frames together. 

Step #4 – Cut out the message ribbon

Using the rest of the second pink cardstock you can make a small rectangle message ribbon. Measures are the same as for the small pink frame. After you cut it, make a smaller white ribbon which you will glue up in the middle of the pink one. I was measuring 5 mm from the small pink ribbon. 

Step #5 – Glue the gray middle frame & add flower stickers

This is where the fun part begins – putting all the pieces together.
First, glue up your gray frame in the middle of the card. Then, add flower stickers in each corner of the frame. This way, you will have a better perspective to decide what is the middle for the smaller pink-white frame. 
Optional: If you do not have flower stickers, you can make or simply draw them by yourself. 

Step #6 – Glue up a pink-white frame

Now, glue up the pink-white frame in the desired position. It can be tricky. When it comes to measures, it was only after I glued that up and measured the distance from the edge of the card for 3 cm. Maybe this will help you. For me, it was easier to estimate “out of sight” where the pink-white frame should stand. 

Step #7 – Make a dress hanger  

To make a dress hanger I was following the tutorial from Agus. It’s really easy and fun. Here is her photo step-by-step tutorial:

After you make a hanger, add a pink dress sticker over it and put it in the middle of your pink-white frame. 

Tip: You can have the same pink dress sticker that I have used. All you have to do is subscribe to my blog at the end of the post and get the printable free

Step #8 – Glue up the message ribbon 

Last but not least, glue up the pink-white ribbon in the desired position. You can add it between the two flower stickers at the bottom of your card or make a composition whit the pink-white frame in the middle, like in my case. This is totally up to you. 
Finally, add your personal message in the ribbon.

BABY GIRL CARD IDEA #2 – STROLLER IN THE HEART

Since I only had a pink stroller sticker, I tried to make a nice composition. This lace ribbon tape gives a gentle impression. Here’s how you can make this baby greeting card. 

Supplies you need for the strollers in the heart greeting card: 

  • White Cardstock (This is for the base)
  • One Colorful & One Pink Sheet of Paper 
  • One Strollers Sticker 
  • Glue (Any Kind)
  • Lace Ribbon Tape (or lase ribbon which you can glue up by yourself)
  • Pen, Scissors & Ruler 
  • Scalpel or Craft knife (I forgot to include it in my photo below)

STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL FOR STROLLER IN THE HEART CARD (See photos below):

Step #1 – Make the basis for the card

Take a white cardstock and fold it in half. This is the base of the card. 

Step #2 – Cut out the heart shape frame

The colorful sheet of paper should cover up 2/3 of the card’s base. It should be a bit smaller than the base. In my case, I measured 3 mm from the edges. 
Draw the desired heart shape frame. This is where you’ll add a stroller sticker later. Depending on the size of your card make the measures for the heart frame.
In my case, I’ve measured 1 cm from the top of the card base and 0.5 cm from the side edges. Use a scalpel or craft knife to cut this frame. 

Tip: You can have the same heart shape frame that I have used, as well as the strollers sticker. All you have to do is subscribe to my blog at the end of the post and get the printable free

Step #3 – Cut out the lace ribbon tape 

Depending on the size of your folded cardstock e.g. your base of the card, measure the size of the lace ribbon tape. 

Step #4 – Cut out the pink frame

So, the first 2/3 of the card’s base is covered with a colorful sheet of paper. The rest is covered with the pink sheet paper to the edges of the card. 

Step #5 – Glue up frames & add stroller sticker

First, glue up the colored sheet paper on the card base and then the pink one. Add lace ribbon tape over the line where the two frames merge and after that put a stroller sticker in the middle of the heart shape.
