Sweet Prince Baby Card

Wow! It's been so long since I have posted. I guess that's what having your first baby will do to you! Well, my son is two months old now and we are finally sort of getting in a routine. It's still difficult to find time to craft but my goal is to carve out a little time here and there because this keeps me sane and I really love to make cards.

I am using this post to enter the Lawnscaping Calling all Critters challenge and also the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Royal. What better way to combine critters and royalty than with a prince baby elephant? Check out the Lawnscaping challenge entries here and the Simon Says Stamp challenge entries here.

I guess I had baby on the brain because my card is for a new baby boy even though I don't know anyone having a baby boy anytime soon.

I really love the Lawn Fawn Hello Baby stamp set but instead of a frog I wanted an elephant for this card so I cut the crown from the frog and placed it on an elephant from the Love You Tons set. I used the Papertrey Ink Delicate Details die to cut a flourish shape out of silver foil cardstock. It's hard to see the foil in the picture but I think the foil adds flare and sophistication to this baby card. Plus, I'm obsessed with anything metallic these days after seeing it out there on so many other projects.

 Here are my ingredients:

Lawn Fawn Hello Baby stamp set

Lawn Fawn Love You Tons stamp set

Lawn Fawn Stitched Labels die

Lawn Fawn Mon Amie paper

Papertrey Ink Delicate Details die

My Creative Time Scalloped and Stitched Circle die

Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist cardstock

Papertrey Ink Sheer Basics Patterned Vellum

Bazzill silver foil cardstock

Memento Black Ink

Copic Markers

I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
