A Monochrome Baby Boy!

This week, I was asked to make a baby card for my colleague whose daughter is just about ready to pop! She's a week overdue so time really wasn't on my side as I knew I'd need to make the card a bit sharpish. So, because of the time factor, I went for another pretty simple card.

Oh by the way, I should point out that she already knows she is having a boy - I promise I didn't just make a 50/50 stab at it!

I made the base from layered shades of blue paper and card and then added a plain white section which I stabbed repeatedly with a fondue fork! I then added some DCWV text paper which had been matted onto a scissor-cut scalloped border. I coloured the Stampendous image (Ellie!) with Prismacolors and Sansodor and mounted on to the card using 3D pads. The card was completed with the addition of a Hero Arts stamped sentiment and the obligatory gems and ribbon.

The card unfortunately looks a little distorted as it is a top folder. With all the rubbish weather, the light has been terrible so the picture also has a funny tinge. I'm sure you get the general idea though!

Hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday - even if the weather is a bit iffy!

Hi Stacey, Beautiful baby card and the image is so sweet, I just want to thank you for all the lovely comments you leave for me too. I think your photo looks great but if you have a scanner this is a great solution to lighting. My friend gave me this tip a few weeks ago and I wasn't convinced but I now scan all my cards and the colours come out so true to real life, Have a great week hun, Hugs, Nikki x
