Baby Boy Blue.
I always delight in making baby cards and revelling in the joy of a new birth. There is something about a new life that always reminds me how very blessed I am on so many levels. The funny or rather quirky "me-like" aspect of this current paper crafting creation is that I actually don't have a current birth to celebrate, but felt like a little fanciful yet jubilant hit that only a new baby can bring.
This card was born out of the current CR84FN Color Challenge showcasing Light Blue, Yellow and Green. I also wanted to take the opportunity to submit once again for the current call for DTs for this esteemed challenge. I think that my last two submissions are all that are required, but I thought, why not...just to be sure to be sure that they know what a keen bean I am. Overkill perhaps.
This card afforded me the opportunity to use the cutest Onesie die from Papertrey Ink. This is such a fun die that can be used to make Onesie shaped cards or can be utilised as I have done as a Onesie shaped focal embellishment. The Onesie was cut from a sheet of the sweetest 6x6 paper pack from Crate Paper called Little Boy Blue. I highly recommend this pack if you are after delight after delight when it comes to delectable patterned paper 100% suited to wee boy bairn. After cutting out the die and staining the edges, I glued a few snippets of the softest pale blue vintage lace I could find in my stash. The die cut ovals with Waltzingmouse Stamps' "Wee Little Baby" sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink and is part of their Limitless Layers Oval set which is also a handy little set to have in one's stamping arsenal.
Lastly, I wanted to mention the cool knit textured background stamp from Impression Obsession that I stamped with Sky Blue ink from Memento. It is one of those nifty, photorealistic, red-rubber Cover-A-Card stamps that I am so fond of. I have a few dozen of them and would not want to be without them. Ever. 100% worth a look-see.
Thank you so much for popping by. I enjoy each of your visits so. Here's to a delightful day filled with the heavenly fragrance or thoughts thereof a new baby. What joy!
