Baby Boy Card


Today I have a masculine baby card that saved those precious snippets of Lawn Fawn plaid patterned paper from the trash bin. I die-cut 3 stitched squares using a Gina Marie Designs stitched square die set and added 3 white sailboat diecuts from Impression Obsession. I placed them on a white panel, matting with Cool Caribbean and Island Indigo cardstock, then did the background with a SU! square lattice embossing folder. The "Baby" die is from Cottage Cuts and all of those sapphire gemstones are from Pizzazz Aplenty, The twine was from my stash.

I'm entering this into the following challenges :


Also a couple of new challenges I recently discovered.....

Interesting to read your comments about Google + - pleased its not just me who isn't keen. This is such a lovely card for a boy baby and great use of various snippets for the little panels.
