In the next few months it will become very clear to everyone who reads my blog that we have a little grandson on the way...so, baby boy cards will be popping up all the time. Pink girlie cards? Not so much! I do have to say that my daughter-in-law is quite the girly-girl and loves bling, so even though I won't dress our baby in rhinestones...his mother's cards will still sparkle!
Today's card was such fun to make and also very easy using Top Dog Dies Diaper Card A2 Die and Diaper Card Finishers Die Set.
I used WPlus9 Dockside Background stamps to create a nautical pattern onto the basic diaper die cut. Super easy...and I used coordinating card stock for the back and sides of the diaper. Those cute safety pins are also from Top Dog Dies (Top Dog Dies Onesie Card Finishers Dies). I cut them from white card stock and used a copic marker to add the red trim. I also added some glossy accents to the red to make them dimensional and more realistic. I used Waltzingmouse Stamps Tying the Knot stamps for the rope border and spray painted some metallic anchors red and added them as safety pin embellishments. Lastly, the bling I added for my daughter-in-law...just because she loves it!
Wouldn't this card make an adorable baby shower invitation for a nautical themed shower? I am quite sure I will be making a lot more of these as the time gets closer for my grandson to be born.
