Thanks so much Jessica! I will be emailing you shortly for your address!!

Onto my next project! I have 3 friends who have had 4 baby boys in total this past month!! You may be seeing a lot of baby boy cards and bags this next little bit!


I made a different version of this card first but really wasn't happy with it.... I had to make a couple little changes and I think I like the revised card better. Here's the first version.


It was just really missing something....

Here are the details for the revised card...
- Card is A2 (8 1/2"x11" sheet of carstock cut in 1/2 and folded)
- card base is kraft Recollections paper
- baby is cut from Baby Steps, cloud is embossed with Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and inked with blue Martha Stewart ink
- stars are cut from Create A Critter
- blue background is stamped with stars using cheap white ink - the effect was almost a watermark effect. I also sprayed on some Pearl Angelglitter Mist which I could see might get very addicting! I really love the effect of this stuff!! Check out the closeup to see the background better...



- of course stitching and doodling with white Gelly Roll and ZIG black pens
- oh, and I can't forget stamps! 'Baby' sentiment was by My Pink Stamper and the baby's face is Peachy Keen

You may see a matching gift bag to go with this sometime in the near future!!
