Good Friday morning from sultry North Carolina. Phew! It is almost too hot to live…I’m keeping my glass filled with ice water, the a/c going and I’m holed up in my studio. I’m knee-deep in my new project for BMW, but I had to take a little creative break yesterday to make a card for Mojo Monday 302. Here’s the sketch:
Since the last Mojo card I made ended up being a baby girl card, I decided that I wanted to make this Mojo sketch into a baby boy card. I love blue and brown together, so I pulled together this quick and easy blue and brown baby boy card.
I started out with a 5×6 1/2″ card base made from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. The white panel was dry embossed with my Stampin’ Up Patterns II Texturz Plate. The lattice design reminded me of a quilt. I found some Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip cardstock to use for matting. I still had some of the cute Onesies I’d rolled out with my jumbo Stampin’ Wheel for the baby girl card, so I fussy cut one of those out to use as the card focal. (What is it about Onesies that makes my heart melt? I love seeing a baby in a Onesie!)
The patterned paper is some old DCWV that I had on the shelves, but the colors were a perfect match, so I added those in. A little stitching, a little stamping, a lot of matting, a little punching and the card was complete.
Again, I used my new favorite sentiment stamp, “One in a Million.”
I can tell I am totally going to get my money’s worth from this versatile stamp set. I love the font, and the sentiments are just perfect.
Here’s a peek at the inside:
…and the lined envelope flap.
I inked the Jumbo Wheel up again with Soft Suede ink and rolled it along the bottom edge of the envelope front. I love the way it looks.
That’s it for me today, folks. Don’t overdo it this weekend. Make yourself a cool drink and hang out by the pool if you can. I hope you got some good ideas from this blue and brown baby boy card. If you would like to order any of the Stampin’ Up products featured here, please let me know. I’d be happy to order them for you. Thanks again for all your kind comments. I read and respond to every single one…and each one makes me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Until next time…
