Baby Boy!


Hi everyone,

Over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog we are continuing our celebration of Mothers & Babies! We have already celebrated Mothers earlier in the month by creating Mother's Day cards ... so now it is time to celebrate Babies!

The challenge today is to create a Baby card ..... easy enough!


I fell in love with this “New Baby” digi image from KLM Designs as soon as I saw it. I have been wanting to use it on a card for sometime now, so this challenge was the perfect opportunity to use it.

The layout of my card is based on Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC73) from last week.


As you can see, I turned my card into an Easel card. It has been a while since I made one of these and I love that you can see both the inside and outside of the card at the one time. Most of the Easel cards I have made so far seemed to have turned out to be square so this is the first non square one I have made …. not sure why it took me so long but there you go.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
