Treasured Baby Boy


Good Evening everyone,
Hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine, 2 days on the trot, can't be bad!!!
You won't believe how long it's taken me to write this post, well uploading the pictures to be exact.
I did something to the file I think when saving it , I can't upload it or delete it from my laptop, goodness knows what I've done. I ended up having to take more photos then save them under a completely different name, 2 hours later and lots of moans and groans here we are.
I've made a card today for a Baby Boy, I can't get a stock of these as they seem to sell as fast as I make them! I used a digi stamp from DigiStamp Boutique the Louie Love Set
The image has been coloured with Copics & chalk. The string of hearts were paper pieced with the checked paper (as the backing paper)  that I shrunk down and added letters to to spell out the word 'BABY'.
I first cut out a aperture in plain blue card using a reverse scallop die, then I cut a circle out of the checked paper and this was matted on top of the blue card to produce a scalloped finish to the aperture. The image was applied to the card front then the aperture was mounted on top using foam pads to raise it. Flowers were die cut using joy! craft die and layered together to give a fuller look, card candi was coloured with markers and added to the centres. The sentiment is from crafters companion and was mounted onto kraft to match the leaves that were cut out using the leaf die from the phlox set from MB.
Well what a load of waffle, hope that's not confused you!
