It's A Boy

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day so far! I have a new post going up over at the "She's A Sassy Lady" blog today and I thought I would share it with you guys here as well. For my project, I created a card to send to my brother and sister-in-law. As I mentioned a while back, they are expecting their 2nd baby and we are all soooo excited! Well, we found out this week they are having another boy! Carter will have a little brother! How awesome is that?! We can't wait to welcome this new little one into our family!

In the meantime though, I wanted to send them a little card congratulating them on finding out it was a boy. I didn't want to go with the classic blue tones you usually see on baby boy cards though, so I went with a lime green and gray color scheme. I just adore these colors together! I hope they will like it! I used my Gypsy to design the card and cut it out using my Cricut. Here is my project:

"It's A Boy" Card

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned Paper: First Edition Paper
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Button: The Paper Studio
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries), Eucalyptus
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy (Provo Craft)
Cartridges: Gypsy Font, Gypsy Wanderings, New Arrival
Adhesive: Helmar
 I used some twine from My Craft Spot to tie a bow to add to the top of the bottle in the background. The bottle is from the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge. The shape of the card is from the Gypsy Font Cartridge.
 This adorable border is from the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge. I used pop dots to pop it up for added dimension and then added some Stickles to it.
 For the inside of my card, I cut out my sentiment from the New Arrival Cartridge.
 And I finished off the back with more coordinating patterned paper and my custom stamp.
I hope you have enjoyed this project. It was really easy and fun to create! I made this card in a little over an hour, so not too bad. Thank you for dropping by my blog and I hope to see you again soon! Enjoy your day!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Being an aunt is so much fun!!! Congratulations to them and little Carter. Your card is simply beautiful. I learned something new. I never knew Gypsy Wanderings had a baby bottle. Live and Learn.
