Baby Boy Card


One of my friends just adopted a newborn baby boy, and I couldn't wait to make a card for him and his family to celebrate the good news.  The first child they adopted is already a kindergartner, so it's been a long wait to get this sweet baby.



This is an A2 size card with the blue layer cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and the brown polka dot layer cut at 3 3/4" x 5".  I used some Recollections Silver Screws brads and some Papertrey Ink Rustic Jute Button Twine to hang my little overalls cut.  It's cut at 4" from the Cricut Baby Steps cartridge.  My friends have season passes to Disneyland and go there A LOT (in fact they were there on New Year's Day when they got the call that they were matched with him)!  Therefore, I just had to add the Mickey head from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge, cut at 0.61" and covered with Glossy Accents, to the pocket.


I thought this was the perfect sentiment for the occasion.  It's from Papertrey Ink's Night Night Moon stamp set, and I stamped it on a shape I cut with their Angled Label Die Collection.

This is absolutely perfect in every way. The Mickey icon and sentiment are perfect for a Disney lover (which I am too ;). And the sentiment is also perfect for a family that has been wishing to add to their family for a while. You are a super sweet friend. They will LOVE this card! Hugs- Glora
