{It's a Boy!}

For those of you that may not know this we found that we are going to have another boy! Oh my goodness two boys! We are thrilled that Cam will have a little brother, and Daddy couldn't be any happier. In honor of this happy news I made a baby boy card to show you today! The stamp set I used is "Bundled in Love" by Stampin' Up, and the super cute DSP is also by SU. To achieve the patch work quilt effect to glued several 3/4 inch strips to a 4.25x5.50 piece of paper and then ran it through my Cuttlebug using the SU Top Note Die. This is a great way to use up old scraps. The sentiment was spritzed with Shimmer Mist, and the edges distressed with Baja Breeze Ink. The embossing folder I used is by Sizzex. I hope that it is cooler wherever you are because it is CRAZY hot here. Thank you for visiting my blog and stay tuned to see cards made with some of the totally cute sets in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!

Big Congratulations! I have two boys and I've often said my younger son is the best gift I ever gave my older son. They make lots of noise and get pretty dirty, but it's all good. :) Your baby card is darling too - love the texture and quilted look. :)

And this card is ADORABLE! I love that paper piecing technique. I so have to try that. And that baby Rhino is cute as can be. Well done!
