New Baby Boy

I have this adorable stamp from Whiff of Joy called Willow holding baby. I just love this stamp and seldom have the need to use it. It is a joy to color and it is a great learning tool for mastering your folds and shading skills …. lol!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

For my card I used a MS punch and the Tim Holtz Tim Holtz Sizzix Elegant Flourishes die and these adorable little flower pack from SSD.  They can be painted, chalked or airbrushed but the base color was perfect for this card. These are available like this or in several different colors. SSD has created their own line of flowers – be sure to check them out here, they are gorgeous!! I added some pearls from my stash.

The little charm I purchased at Michael’s. Since the card is kind of feminine I wanted to make sure it showed somewhere that it was for a boy.

Here is a close up of Willow. I colored her with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00
  • Hair – N7, N5, N3
  • Dress – BG13, BG11, BG10, BG000
  • Baby Blanket – BG48, BG45, BG11

Here is the inside. So, here is my story as to why there are signatures on this if I just made it. Well, if you are a follower … or even if you look down a few posts for the baby girl card … you will know that I recently made a baby card in pinks for a co-worker. Guess what? They are not having a girl. I could have sworn it was but I was wrong so I move the signature mat from the other card and added it here. It will continue getting routed at work when I return on Tuesday and both sides will be full of signatures.
