Baby Boy Card
I made this card a few weeks ago but never got around to posting it. It was literally made in 10 minutes before I went to church one Wednesday night for a girl in our church who had just had a baby boy. No cricut on this one, since I didn't have enough time to even look through my handbooks to choose a cut!
The blue striped paper is from a baby boy pad of paper I got at Walmart on clearance a few years ago. I cut it at 5 3/4" x 6 3/4". The contrasting strip is white cardstock cut at 2" x 6 3/4". I embossed it with the baby cuttlebug folder then inked it with baby blue ink from Martha Stewart. For the stamped image I cut a 3" x 3" square of white, and matted it with a square of baby blue cardstock cut 1/4 inch larger. On the inside of the card I added baby blue cardstock. The stamps both on the outside and inside are from a Close to My Heart stamp set called Baby Miracles. I love this set because you can add color to the images, but they look great just stamped as well. I stamped them in Cocoa ink from Close to My Heart. Sorry the pictures are so dark. I was in such a hurry that I didn't have time to take a picture so my husband took one with his iphone at the church. Thanks for looking!!
