Baby Bundle Baby Card (Another one!)

Is there a baby boom going on?? I know of so many gals who are either pregnant or have recently had a baby. Or maybe I it's just the group of people I know. SO then the question is, is it a good thing to know me or not!!! LOL Anyway, I am in need of another baby card. This time it's a boy. But I bet you figured that out by the color of the card!!!

Once again I used the "Baby Bundle" stamp set for this card. I was going to originally have the card set in landscape instead of portrait. And I had the circles at the top with the center one being higher than the two on the sides. But as I was playing with it I thought I'd like the circles to be on the long side. I had already put the scallop on which made the circles on that side a tight fit. I did manage to get them in there without them looking too crowded. Using Dimensionals behind them did help with that a lot!

This was a very easy card to make. I stamped the images with StazOn ink. Then I punched them out using the 1-1/4" circle punch. I punched the next layer out using Marina Mist card stock and the 1-3/8" circle punch. I then punched the scalloped circle out using Bashful Blue card stock. I taped them all together and then I played with them on the card front for a while to see what I liked.

Next I colored in the images with markers. But on the teddy bear I did use the Crumb Cake marker and a blender pen. The color was just too dark to use it directly from the marker.

I wanted to add a Bashful Blue 5/8" ribbon on top of the card and looking through the catalog I found that there is not one piece of Bashful Blue ribbon in there! SO I had to dye the white ribbon using the Bashful Blue inker. This is the part that took the longest on the card. It doesn't take long to dye the ribbon, it's the drying of the ribbon that takes the longest. SO if you want a certain ribbon on your card make sure you take care of that first so you don't have to wait so long to finish your card. I suppose I could have ironed the ribbon to speed up the drying but I didn't want to take the chance of burning it. And the same with the heat embossing tool, I was afraid I'd burn or melt the ribbon. SO I hung it to dry and waited it out. Not that I didn't have a million other things to do in the meantime! Anyone care to come over and help organize my workroom? It's such a disaster.
Anyway, here you have it. A sweet little boy baby card. Now I'm off to finish a fun bracelet I started yesterday. I would have finished it last night but this cold I'm fighting made me extremely tired so it was off to bed for me! I'll show you the bracelet when I get it done. I have a piece on it that needs a little thought and design work to it but I should be able to finish it up sometime today.

Be sure to stop in on New Year's Day to see the fun Blog Candy I will be putting up. And as usual I will have a question for you to answer too!!! Nothing is really free, is it? LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
