Hello everyone!  And welcome to my Wednesday post!!  Today, I’ve made a baby card.  An “It’s A Boy” card, in fact!

I started by die-cutting a scalloped oval from some watercolour cardstock. I blended on some heavy colour using Distress Oxide Inks in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio.  I then flicked on some water drops to get the cool bleached effect.  And to top it off, I used a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls (in the colour Perfect Pearls), and sprayed it liberally.

While that was drying, I stamped the teddy bear, the blocks and the rubber duckie from the Welcome Baby stamp set in Versafine Black Onyx ink onto watercolour cardstock.  I also stamped that cute little box from the Curious Kitties stamp set. I coloured all the images with my Stabilo 68 pens.

For the sentiment, I stamped the “boy” word onto white cardstock in blue ink and die cut it with theHooray Baby Honey Cuts.  Before adhering the images to the oval focal point, I stamped “It’s A” with Versamark Ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I cut a slit, following the black stamped line on the box to create an opening where I could slide my toys in.  I simply fastened them to the back of the box with Scotch Tape.  I adhered the box filled with toys and the boy word with foam adhesive.

To give my plain white cardbase texture, I used a triangle embossing folder.  Then foam mounted the scalloped oval, as well.

To finish the card off, I added some light blue enamel dots and some dark blue ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Have a fabulous day and I’ll see you next week!!

    A fantastic card Laurie and just in time! I need to make some baby boy cards today and this is a great ‘jumping off point’ for me. TFS!

    BTW, do you know if Honey Bee has drawn their winner yet from the My Sweet Petunia/Honey Bee collab? I have been checking back here but can’t find it. (I see My Sweet Petunia has drawn theirs. Just curious.) Thanks
