Oh Baby!

Since it's Father's Day month I have challenged myself to make guy cards for my workshop (coming up this weekend). An easy "guy" card is a baby boy card. This one uses the paper pack called "Notebook" which I've used and used. The flip side to the blue polka dot paper is pink polka dot so you could totally make this a little girl color by just flipping the paper. The card base is Colonial White and the brown is textured chocolate paper which comes in a neutral combo pack. I love it because the flipside of the card is a light color making it easy to use with cards. I did stamp some polka dots on it using the Argyle Backgrounds stamp set to go with the whole polka dot theme. The onesie and frame are from a set called Baby Steps which has a lot of cute little stamps (most of which would have fit in the frame.) Rather than coloring in the onsie I decided to stamp it on the Notebook paper to match the blue strip. I then stamped it one more time on the brown to get the little heart. The ribbon just finished it off and I think it's from Walmart. Finally I used rub-ons from the Chocolate Love Letter Collection. On the inside of the card I used the alphabet rub-ons and spelled out my new nephew's name. I can't wait to send it along to my sister.
All supplies for this card except for the ribbon can be found on my Close To My Heart website. Don't forget to look for the deal of the day if you're visiting in June 2009! Thanks for stopping by!
You are Close to My Heart,
