But back to the card... I wanted to do something cute, but not girly. So I went with some pretty standard baby boy colors: blue and brown. I got this blue distressed checkered paper a long time ago, and I have just been dying for an excuse to use it. So, naturally, it was kinda my inspiration piece for the card.
And you know me... can't resist a sale. Michael's was having a clearance on that blue ribbon like 6 months ago, so I bought way too much of it and hadn't even taken the wrappers off until I did this card. But it was totally worth it... right?
I wanted to do something fun for the insert of the card, rather than just a blank insert, or something with color-blended edges, so I had some fun with my New Arrivals Cricut cartridge and cut out a bunch of fun shapes in different colors and textures.
I LOVED the way the ducky came out; I used yellow paper that has dots embossed into it. I thought that it was super cute with the texture. And plus, I'm starting to love polka dots on everything.
Speaking of polka dots... I got a new stamp that looks kinda splatter paint ish and I was embossing with it last night for these bachelorette party invites I'm doing. Super stoked about that. BUT! I'll be bringing you those pics once they are done.
Until then... happy crafting!!
