For The Sweetest Little Man!



I have made baby cards in my day, but not that many truth be told, and even fewer for the wee boy bairn that we also love so. Therefore when I spotted The Shabby Tea Room's current "Sweet Baby" challenge, I instantly thought...why not?  I just knew I had to get crafty with the scrumptious Little Men in our lives in mind.

May I present to you...drum roll please...my mini masculine card for the wee dote:



All supplies used save the yummy striped DP, the star brad, and the corrugated paper (from my stash) are from Papertrey Ink.  The DP is from October Afternoon.  ...And dont they do good pattern papers too.  Love.

Thanks a wonderful bunch for stopping by.  I find it so fabulous when you do!  Hugs.

Jen........This is so adorable!!!! Love those little stripes (reminds me of the little train conductor overall sets you can buy for baby boys, complete with the little hat.....lol). The tickets and colors are just perfect together!

Ooh..that's such a cool baby card! Love the stars and the striped paper is awesome. I haven't made a baby cars in a while either. It seems to come in cycles. One minute everyone is pregnant and the next zilch. Haha

This is a great card. I love how you made the corners of the card match the corners of the tickets..very clever. And those stars are the perfect touch.

Very sweet makes a great baby boy card. I especially like that striped DP and your use of the tickets too! Mine still have not seen ink. I need to change that soon though. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh I HAVE that paper, and now you have inspired me to go dig it from the "Do not use this paper, it's too pretty" vault! HA! Love the layout with the star and tickets, soooo cooool!
