Baby boy card

For the past while I had only been making cards as I needed them and at times even had to buy cards when I wasn't well enough to make them.  I'm trying to change that now by building up a supply ready for when I need one! I had gingham paper on my desk, so I made this very simple baby boy card.

The larger star die cut is the same Sizzix one I used for the party boxes in a previous post.  I just matted blue card and gingham paper together (rounding the corners first with a corner chomper) and glued them to the white base card. I stamped the sentiment (Papermania Honey & Hugs collection) with SU bashful blue ink, pricked the edges of the stars and added them to the gingham paper. Then tied narrow grosgrain ribbon through a white button and used a glue dot to attach it to the star.

It's Caleb's 'proper' birthday tomorrow, as he calls it, so I'll be back soon to show you his birthday card.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you all have a lovely day :)Sarah x

Sweet card Sarah, love the touch of gingham.
I used to have a stock of cards when I sold them but got out of the habit when we packed up to move house...making a blog has kick started me again and it's great to have a supply to hand isn't it :)
