A New Baby Boy

I had so much fun making this new baby boy card for my online friend Sam.
I have been a long time admirer of Sam's creations on her blog and when I read about the birth of her new baby boy, I had just the idea. I have seen a few variations of these kind of cards around, and I was lucky enough to receive a Christmas version last year, so using that one for measurements I was able to create this card. I am really happy with how it turned out, and I cant wait to make a few more for my stash.

Crumb cake, bashful blue cardstock, early espresso, crumb cake and bashful blue inks, well scripted and baby bundle stamp sets (kindly lent from Philippa -thanks Phil). Bashful blue brads, trimmer & scorer, circle, scallop and tag punches, blender pens

HI Leonie! It was so nice to have you pop by on my blog! Thanks for your lovely encouragement! This is super super cute! The crumb cake makes the bashful blue just "pop"! I so have to try one of these cards! But ... I love the "drawer" look on the main section! How clever! Hugs xxaxx
