Baby Boy

One of my friends just had a little baby boy and named him Eli. Sadly I cannot go visit anytime soon as they live about 2 000 kms away but I was excited to make and send them a card.

The card base is Creativ textured cardstock and the paper from Creativ mini paper stack (baby boy) (with the edge inked in distress ink "chipped sapphire").
I coloured a cream Boutique double sided satin polyester ribbon with copic B41. (Note: It looks like you can see two different colours on the ribbon but the lighter colour is one layer of B41 and the darker colour I went over again with the B41.)
For the tag I took an Inkssentials #5 size manilla craft tag and pressed it onto my craft mat that I had previously rubbed distress stains "mustard seed", "broken china" and "chipped sapphire" onto. I then dried the tag using my heat gun. I stamped the word "baby" (from Heidi Swapp) in distress ink "tumbled glass" and the word "congratulations" (from Stamp-It) in distress ink "chipped sapphire" onto the tag.
The letters to spell "eli" I got from my stash (pretty sure they came from Kmart - so probably Creativ brand??).
Stuck this all down (with X-Press it double sided tape, Glossy Accents and X-Press It gel glue) and finished with some liquid pearls "ocean blue" and "baby blue" in the corners.

  1. What a sweet baby boy card! Love the die cut letters, and that tag is gorgeous! I especially like the little bit of yellow on it--brightens up the card just enough. :)


Comments are greatly appreciated and I cherish each and every one of them! Thanks for stopping by!
