Spellbinders Baby Boy

Hello friends - there is something about making baby cards - is it the fact that they are one of the cards people seems to keep, along with Wedding cards?  I do love the create them and adding lots of special details.  This may be the only time that you can make cards for males pretty and even add a bow! LOL!

I have cut/embossed the card base using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles 2 and Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform..  The patterned paper has been cut to size and popped up onto the card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The image is from my stash and has been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  This has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and adhered to a Standard Circle LG using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner, then popped up onto a Die from  Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance and frame from the Silhouette Die D-Lite.

The sentiment is from the Darkroom Door  Hello Baby stamp set and stamped using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  This has been cut and layered onto a strip of the patterned paper and then onto the layered card base.  The gorgeous sheer double bow is created using May Arts Ribbon.
