Welcome Baby Boy!


This week's My Craft Spot challenge is "Cute Critters".  I am over-the-moon delighted to announce that I have a NEW nephew!  I made this card to welcome him to this world.


The sweet little zebra is an SVG from Treasure Box Designs.  As I was making a baby boy card, I decided to give the zebra blue stripes. I inked all the edges as I knew I wanted to use a white background.  I embossed the white mat with a hearts folder from HMK Cards.


The little banner was cut using Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies.  The white layers were then stamped with one of the Pattern Blocks stamps and then layered with letters cut from the Small Alphabet metal dies.


At the bottom of my card, I added a banner cut with one of the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies.  I stamped it with a sentiment from the Banner Sentiments set and finished things off with some enamel dots from my wonderful blogging friend, Susie of Susie Craft Happy.  (Thanks again, Susie!)

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the wonderful creations created by the talented design team.  Then, link up your own Cute Critters creation for a chance to win this week's prize!
