Welcome to the World Sweet Baby

My nephew and his wife had a beautiful baby boy last week. This is the card I made to welcome little Theo to the world.

I searched my baby stamps and couldn’t find what I wanted so I went to the Silhouette Store and found this cute cut file from Stinkin Cute Paper Piecing called Baby Boy Planning Stickers. I sized them for what I wanted, printed them with registration marks, and then cut them with the software.

To add some dimension to the images I used some Copic Markers to add shading.

I pulled out a paper pad from DCWV called Nana’s Nursery Baby Boy and found this cute yellow plaid paper for a background and cut a rectangle using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. I searched my stash of paper and found a blue cardstock that matched the blue in the images and created a side folding A2 cardbase and adhered the plaid rectangle to the front with dotliner adhesive.

I arranged the images I decided to use on the card to determine where to stamp the large “welcome” from Hero Arts Little One using Gina K. Designs Blue Denim Ink. Next I stamped the secondary sentiment on a scrap of yellow cardstock with the same ink and cut it into a thin strip with a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label.

The ABC Blocks and baby bottle where adhered directly to the plaid paper with liquid glue. Ranger Glossy Accents were added to the bottle to make it look more like glass. The pacifier was adhered to the hands of the bear with liquid glue and the bear was then adhered to the patterned paper with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. A thin strip of foam was added behind the secondary sentiment and it was adhered over the stamped “welcome” and the card was done.
