Hello Baby

A new year and a new challenge from The Male Room, and we kick off the year with the theme New Beginnings.

My card this morning is for a new baby, a boy of course, since we are a challenge blog for masculine inspired projects. I even managed to incorporate a ribbon on this one, breaking one of my own 'rules' of not using trimmings like ribbon on a a masculine card.
The images are stamped in Versamark onto pale blue card, heat embossed with Pearly Silver embossing powder and matted onto gorgeous, pearlised silver card. The stamps themselves are an eclectic mix of freebies and cheapies and I've given then the 9 square treatment- one of my favourite design layouts. This card kept evolving.... I then decided to make it into an easel card, using the teddy image to make the 'stand' element. I added a matching pearly silver card mat to the inside. Which is your favourite image here? I think mine are the tiny handprints, although I love the building blocks and the teddy bear.

I hope you have time to join in with the challenge. Over at Make My Monday they have the same theme challenge so I'm going to link up my card there, you could too!


  1. This is so sweet - beautiful baby colours too. I think my favourite is the teddy bear! Thanks for sharing this card at MMM too - J xx

  2. Louise - this is absolutely adorable. I love the soft pale blue and the pretty pearl embossing. Love it. A new baby boy is one of the big New Beginnings! Great work.
