Moon Baby, Baby Boy Card, 2017 Occasions Catalog

Today I thought I would give another image from the "Moon Baby" set a try.  I LOVE this sleeping baby on the moon. Since I made a girl card yesterday, I thought I would try a boy one today.  Though I think I may make one of these in pink and one in a green, maybe Pear Pizzazz, a soft green, so I have one for those who don't know what they are having.

For this card I used a folded half sheet of Basic Black cardstock.  Then I added a 4" x 5-1/5" of Bermuda Bay decorative paper from the 12" x 12" stacks.  I stamped the image on a 3" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then I colored the images in. I was going to add some Dazzling Diamonds to the stars but I decided not to.  I still might do it though, I think it could use a little sparkle.

Once I colored the image in, I layered it on a piece 3-1/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the words and used the oval dies to cut them out plus the scalloped layer behind it.  I taped the baby panel in place on top of the decorative paper.  And for the words, I used Dimensionals behind them to give the card some depth. Originally I was going to have the card landscape instead of portrait but I couldn't get the words to look right on it, so I turned the cardstock and this is what I ended up with.  I like it, I think it turned out just fine.

The inside of the card reads: "do you know how loved you are?"  Isn't that just the sweetest?  

This was a fun card to make and I could see myself making some more.  They were fun and easy enough to do.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by today,
