When you want a handmade card new baby boy, this card fits the bill! Sweet, blue, cuddly stuffy toy, ribbon, a bit of glitz…what a wonderful way to welcome a new little fella!
Let’s see it…
What’s super cool about this set is how realistic your stamped image is! Three steps to build a cute and cuddly bunny for the new little tyke. But there’s a bit of a catch to building your image. Stay tuned and I’ll fill you in!
But you know what? This card has another quirk. It’s a gatefold, on its side. I cut the front panel larger than normal so it will stand up just like I did with this faux brush congrats card. Here’s a side view.
My card base is Very Vanilla so while I could very easily have stamped onto the card itself for the inside, I took it one step further. I created a matted panel for my sentiment combining Crumb Cake for the words and adding the little flower in Soft Sky.
Now I bet you thought that Sweet Little Something set was only for Easter! Not so! Think baby and congrats too! Let’s see the set.
What’s the trick to this handmade card new baby boy?
Normally for two step, we start by stamping with our most solid image first, then gradually move into the detail, right? With this guy, we leave the solid image until last! Here’s the steps:
While I love the realistic look these steps will give you, I wanted a slightly less “defined” bunny for my handmade card new baby boy. So I used only ONE colour of ink and stamped off to create my furry guy. Here’s what I did:
- Inked with Crumb Cake and stamped the most detailed image in full strength
- Then I inked up the medium detailed stamp with Crumb Cake, then stamped it onto a scrap piece of paper first, then directly onto my shape in 1.
- Last, I inked up the solid image with Crumb Cake and stamped off TWO times – very lightly – onto a scrap piece of paper, then overlaid it on my bunny.
Can you see the difference? A bit more blurry and softer feel.
Let’s make a couple more!
How about a baby girl card too with a little bit of bling (it’s never too early to start a gal with BLING is it😉)?
My background paper for both these cards is the beautiful Bundle of Love specialty paper, retiring at the end of May. It’s a bit different than all our other papers. It comes in a set with 6 Soft Sky and 6 Blushing Bride sheets but they are all backed with different gorgeous vanilla gold foil designs. You might remember this fun fold Valentine’s I shared made with it too.
I’ve got a wedding card I’m planning with it this summer too! I love the heavier weight, its simplicity and elegance. I’m on my second pack and another one is on its way before it vanishes for good!
But before we go, I couldn’t resist one more design, this time with the super cute We Must Celebrate set. Here’s another bunny for a little guy, coloured with a Soft Sky Stampin’ Write marker this time.
Since the bunny comes as part of a group of four buddies, to get him alone, I coloured only him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker (TIP1: use the brush tip marker on its side for best results). Then I stamped onto my Very Vanilla scalloped oval.
Wow! SO many options with one card fold and the same designer paper. Good thing there’s no shortage of babies! 😁
You’ll have fun recreating this design at home. Here’s everything you need.
