Precious Baby Boy

Hello there my crafty friends!  I started today's card by cutting the Plaid Background in both white, Sky Blue and Blue Dusk card.  I backed the white one with another piece of white card to use as the base.  I shadowed the sky blue die cut with the Blue Dusk die cut, then cut two side borders out of it.  I backed both of them with a piece of white card that was covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled off the backing paper, attached the side borders then sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on them.  I cut two thin strips of sky blue card and glued them down the cut sides of the borders.  I added them to the sides of the card with mounting foam to raise them.  Using the Noble Pierced Stars, I cut them in alternating colours of blue then stacked them and attached them to the centre of the card.  I cut the Precious Little Boy sentiment out of Sky Blue and seated it on a white backing piece then attached it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hiya Sue and everyone that pops in.
How cute. A precious piece of inspiration with a design for both baby boys and girls, use 2 of the smaller stars for twins or ...... more lol. I love how with just a simple change of cardstock and change of sentiment you have a card for ant celebration within reason.
Have a good day and love to all xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh such a beautiful celebration for a baby, twins or even more, yes I like this, I would add more glitter bling to the back of the whole card not just the sides, but that is my choice. Stunning creation xx

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx said...

Hi Sue, what a lovely card to welcome in a new baby boy and if you change the colours and sentiment it could also work for older boys who can be quite tricky to make cards for.

This is a lovely modern take on a new baby card, but can easily be adapted for all ages & celebrations. Thank you Sue.

Hi Sue, a lovely card and a design that with a change of colour could just as easily suit a baby girl, good job.
