A Baby Card

I never get to do baby cards. Mostly because I'm growing older and it's not like my friends' kids are having children yet. :-) But most of my friends are past having children as well. All but one, apparently, lol! A friend I reconnected with on Facebook is having a baby boy at the end of April. I wasn't able to attend her shower, but I wanted to send her something, so I made this card. I actually picked up the stamp set by Sandylion a couple of weeks ago when my mom was visiting, and I bought it because I thought it would be perfect for a baby card, plus there are other "boy" images that would be good for kid birthday cards.

I stamped the lion in Memento Cocoa Brown ink and then colored it with my (very old) Prismas (see previous post for the age of these markers). I stamped in Papertrey's Vintage Cream hybrid ink on some Papertrey Dark Chocolate cardstock with the big polka dots from the Polka Dot Basics. I also used my neglected Quickutz Stiletto alphabet on this card. I LOVE how the Cuttlebug accommodates so many different die systems. :-) I thought the card came out really cute, and I hope she likes it! Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, Summer Sunrise cardstocks; Memento Cocoa Brown ink; Papertrey Vintage Cream ink; Sandylion "Boy" clear stamps; Papertrey Faux Ribbon (sentiment inside); Prismacolor markers; Square Nestabilities; Quickutz Stiletto alphabet; Scor-Pal; Offray Spool O'Ribbon cream ribbon; Sheer Creations gold ribbon; Fiskars border punch.
