Baby Boy

Don't you just love newborn babies and the chance to make something special?  I sure do!

Today I visited my friend's little boy Benjamin.  He was 8 days old and so tiny.  You forget how small babies are!

Of course I had to make a card for the occasion.  I was inspired by a card that I saw while surfing the blogs and made my version from one made by Marelle.  I hope you enjoy:

What I really like about this card is the use of non-traditional baby colours.  Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, but it's nice to play with other colours!!

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Fox & Friends and Short & Sweet
Papers: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive (textured) and Whisper White CS, Tall Tales DSP (retired) and scraps of other DSP.
Inks: So Saffron, Soft Suede & Old Olive
Other: Big Shot & Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlits dies, Square, Scallop Oval & Oval Punch & Stampin' Dimensionals.

Now it's got me pondering, how could I tailor this card for girls?  Pinks and Greens, Purples perhaps!!  Time to go experiment with colours!!


  1. This is gorgeous Carolyn, will definitely have to case it with all my friends having babies as well as myself at the moment!

  2. Thanks Christine. I'm so waiting for one of my friends to have a baby girl so I can try a different colourway!!
