House Mouse Baby Boy Card

Wow! I knew it had been awhile since I had posted, but I didn't realize how long until I saw the date of my last post! My goal of posting regularly went great the first of the year, but flu, birthdays, and teaching has been crazy!! Hopefully, I'll get back to this more regularly.

So, on to the card! Another one of my goal is to use up the stamped images that I have stockpiled. I stamped a ton of images to take on vacation last year to color and I need to use them up. I cut the card from Birthday Bash in baby blue cardstock from Hobby Lobby. That cart has amazing shaped cards for every button. The card was cut at Fit to Page which cut it at 5 1/2". The coordinating piece of blue plaid was cut at 5 1/2" using some baby boy paper I had in my stash. I cut the baby carriage from Heritage at 4". The stamped image was from House Mouse stamps, which I colored with my prisma pencils and cut out. I used pop dots behind it to give dimension. Everything was inked with brown cats eye chalk inks. The flowers were some that I crocheted last year and had in my embellishments. I added adhesive pearls from Hobby Lobby to the center.

I hope you have enjoyed this. Thanks for stopping by!
