Baby Boy Card for Sweet Baby "G"

  I love my job.  I also love babies. One of the perks of my job is to see my little students become big brothers and sisters. Plus, it gives me a wonderful excuse to make a special something for the family.

 I love this image, it's one of my favorites for a baby card.  It's from The Graphics Fairy, and Karen very kindly gave her readers various color options.  

I wanted to try something different for this card, so I punched squares out of some blue mulberry paper.  When you punch this stuff out, more is more.  Fold your paper until you have quite a few layers and then punch it.  It will be easier to cut, and you will have less tears in the paper.

I used Mod Podge to decoupage the squares all over the front of my card.  When it was dry, I added the print out.

I ran some ribbon through my sticker machine and put it underneath, and added a stamped G.

This is the back.  "Baby dear" stamped in blue, and mounted on top of pretty paper. Welcome to the world Baby G!

I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
