Blue Plaid Welcome Baby Boy Card
I have a card storage container with dividers that I use for my own stash as well as for selling at a few local bazaars. I actually have two, one is dedicated to Christmas cards (which I love to make year around) and the other is filled with everything else. I noticed after a couple of new babies arriving late last year that I am OUT of baby cards! I cannot have an empty section so I put one boy and one girl arrival cards on my to make list. I started with the boy's card. I made this card using some fun dies that I bought because they are a bit "distressed" and unfinished looking. I tend to make things very finished and like that these dies push my limits. So, I chose two complementary blue papers, one from a DCWV 4 x 6.5 pad and the other came from a 12 x 12 Recollections pad. I used my favorite Lil' Inkers banner stitched die for the sentiment. It was painful, but I forced myself to tear the blue paper, and lo and behold it came out great! DIY Enamel dots finish this one nicely. I have a template for the stitched die that I put in my MISTI, it ensures perfect sentiment placement every time!
