Baby Boy Card

Hi all,

I saw the recent challenge on The Paper Players which was Buttons and Bows for baby. It made me think of the card that I made for my Cousin when he had his son last year.

I started out by stamping the rattle and two sentiments from the Papertrey Ink stamp set Baby Button Bits onto a piece of cream cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I found a button that was the right colour and size for the centre of the rattle and sewed it on. I then matted the cream cardstock with a piece of baby blue cardstock and added a rhinestone to each of the corners to finish my focal image.
Next I trimmed a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than my card base and embossed just the bottom portion with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then wrapped some blue striped ribbon around the cardstockand tied it into a bow as I wanted to cover the join where the embossing started. I die cut a tag using a JustRite custom Spellbingers die and stamped the baby's name onto it using JustRite alphabet stamps. I sewed on a small silver dummy charm and the tag underneath the bow. I adhered my white panel onto my cream card base using a Tombow Mono adhesive tape runner. To finish the card I attached my focal panel with dimentional foam adhesive.

I am entering this card into The Paper Players Buttons and Bows for Baby Challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show Metal-ology Challenge.

Before I go I just want to say thank you to all of the people who have chosen to follow me, I really appreciate it! At first I was quite doubtful that anyone would be interested but you have really made me feel like it is worthwhile me blogging about my cards. I hope I am able to continue sharing my creations with you in the future!

I hope you have enjoyed viewing my blog today and I hope you will stop by again in the future!

Until next time,
Lucy x
