Sugar Bowl Challenge 9

Afternoon all! Our visitors have just left so I can now get back to my crafting and blogging!!! I've just managed to do this card in time for the Sugar Bowl Challenge 9 where the theme is a male card.

I have made yet another baby card and have used the gingham papers from Chris once again.... I just love the fresh feel of them and they are so perfect for baby cards. I went with a green theme and I used my Dexter the Bear stamp which I was lucky enough to win on a TYI challenge.

I used my swiss dots folder for the embossing and ribbon and pearls from my stash to embellish.

I decorated the inside to match the front and used a cuttlebug alphabet (forget the name of it) for the wording "Baby Boy". I don't use this alphabet as much as I should - I forget that I have it!!! - so expect to see it a bit more in the future!!!!

The sentiment was computer generated using the font lucinda handwriting and it was cut and layered with nesties.

I also decorated the envelope to match the card and it is shown in the top image.

Card/Paper: White and green card, Downloaded from Chris
Stamp: SN - Dexter the Bear
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, peeled paint
Embellishments: Ribbon, pearls
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder, cuttlebug alphabet dies
Thanks for looking. x
