hello, baby… (boy)

** 4/16/17 Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft! **

Hi everyone! Can you believe it’s April 1st?! Hope nobody gets over on you with an April Fool’s joke today, lol! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for April Anything Goes! You’ll remember last month I created a baby girl card using the three-step ‘Baby Bear’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Well, this month I have a baby boy card created with the same stamp set. How cute is this?! :) A CAS design with minimal embellishments. The card base was cut with that same awesome Papertrey Ink die set. ;)


I cut the image with a stitched oval die and layered it on foam for a little dimension. All four corners were embellished with rhinestones. The seam binding bow matches the cardstock.


I kept the inside very simple with just a stamped sentiment on a panel cut with a die from the same die set

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
