New Baby Boy Card

I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom of of the card with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Tattered Lace embossing folder.  Where the blue and white card meet I have attached self adhesive crochet ribbon.

I have die cut the baby vest, bib and duck using Sue Wilson dies. I assembled them before adding them to my card with foam pads. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate scalloped oval die and mounted it onto a blue scalloped oval that I cut with the next size die in the nesting set. I added some flat backed pearls where the poppers would be on the vest.

I have die cut the the bib using a Marianne die, I wanted to add the baby's name onto the bib. To have the perfect size font I decided to use my Sue Wilson "BOYFRIEND" die and snipped the letters to separate them. I attached the bib to my card using foam pads so it would act as the stopper.

I printed the baby's full name and date of baby birth and used the scalloped oval nesting set again then added them to the bottom of my card.
