Baby Boy Congrats

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  I took some liberty with this challenging – using only a bit of the Blushing Bride. 😉

This card is made for my cousin and his wife who just had a baby boy.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a piece of Soft Sky cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder.  I tied some Very Vanilla ribbon round the bottom of the card in a knot.

Pause for a moment – This picture doesn’t do the embossing justice, no picture does.  It is far more impressive in person that I imagined.  It-is-amazing!

I stamped the tools in Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand cardstock and cut them out using the Nailed It Bundle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set in Soft Sky ink and added a Blushing Bride enamel heart.

  1. Darling! Reminds me of when my nephew was a toddler and his dad would put a penny nail in a board and then hand him a hammer! He loved it! Scared the heck out of me!
