A New Baby!!!

No.... not mine YET!!!! For those of you who just held your breath momentarily.... still got a couple of months to wait. hahaha

Our next door neighbours just welcomed a little baby boy into the world so I thought I'd make a little card to give to them and here it is.

This card is the same sort of layout I used for one of Kristina's colour challenges in this post except I've changed the colours. I started with Very Vanilla as the base and then used Blue Bayou and River Rock for the larger layers. The River Rock piece I've stamped with a stamp from the Boho Backgrounds Stamp set and then tied some Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon around it before sticking it to the card base. The Giraffe and Bird are of course from my FAVE 'Wild About You' and stamped in Soft Sky and Blue Bayou and layered on Soft Sky and Blue Bayou Cardstock. The words are from the hostess set 'So Many Sayings' and I've just cut it into small sections and mounted them onto the same layers as the Giraffe.

This is such a simple but effective layout and you just can't beat the Wild About You set to make some baby cards.... well I can't anyway.... If not the Giraffe then the Elephant... mmm... maybe I should try this card out with the elephant now.... might just do that!!

Hope you like.


Here's a list of everything I used:-

Stamps:- Wild About You, Boho Backgrounds, So Many Sayings
Card:- Very Vanilla, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, River Rock
Ink:- Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, River Rock
Accessories:- Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon.
