Welcome Baby Boys!

I had two friends have babies within about a week of each other again, and this time they were both boys. I decided to make two of the same card to speed up the process and since I was using larger scraps, it wasn't too much of a challenge. :)

 I used this week's sketch from Unscripted Sketches as inspiration. I also did this for the 11/4/12 Card Challenge at My Scraps and More, which was to use stars on a card.

When I looked at the sketch with the idea of making a baby card, the banner across the top made me think of a wash line with baby clothes on it.  I used the "New Arrival" cartridge for the baby and onesies.  For the background of my card, I ran a sheet of Core' dinations  Whitewash cardstock through my texture boutique for some texture.  I sanded off some of the white layer of the paper and then inked the edges with two colors of blue distress ink.  I wrote the baby's initials on the punched star by the sentiment with a Souffle pen.

Patterned Paper- Creative Imaginations, Paper Adventures
Embossing Folder- Sizziz
Pens- Sakura, Provo Craft
Ink- Ranger

Die Cutter- Provo Craft
