Baby Boy Card

My lovely hubby asked me if I had any cards for a new baby boy so I had a look through what I had made already and only had one, loads of baby girls but not boys. As he wanted to take it so all his colleagues could sign it he needed a larger one so I rustled this up using lots of baby bits and pieces. Most unusual for me though is that there are no digi images on it!!!

I used a scalloped 8” square cardblank and added some Craftwork Cards Candi around the edges in plan blue and a paler spotted one. The main paper is by DCWV and is from a Spring themed drawer set from QVC which is years old. The paper has the spots on it, the wording and the star border so I just cut it to size and matted onto some blue card.

The little duck is a clear sticker from Papermania added to white card and then some of the blue and both layers have been trimmed with my corner rounding punch. I used some Woodware brads for the fuzzy hands and feel. The rattle is a glittered chipboard sticker from a sheet I got in a £1 shop in Manchester last year. The rocking horse is a 3d sticker from Poundland, the little hand is a Pebbles Inc sticker, the safety pins by Papermania and the Congratulations sentiment is a rub on.

I was told that the Mummy and Daddy loved the card and it had lots of lovely comments when it was being passed round for Paul’s colleagues to sign so I am really pleased it was received so well J

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – 8” Square
Paper – DCWV
Embellishments – Craftwork Cards Candi, rub on, stickers by pebbles Inc, Papermania, Poundshow & Poundworld items, Fuzzy brads by Woodware
Tools – 3d foam, Woodware corner rounder punch
Techniques – Punching

Mandy~ Very nicely done...I make cards for people at work often and I try to keep in mind how many people will be signing it! So it was a challenge for you sometimes we get so used to using digi or stamped images as a focal point. Well done :) Thanks for joining us this week at Jackson's Digital Expressions!

Adorabale card, Mandy. I find that the majority of my baby stuff is geared towards girls, too. I had to recently purchase a new paper stack to finish some decor for a baby shower. Thanks for playing along with Jackson's Digital Expressions.
