Baby Boy Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Card

My friend who I spent the vast majority of my teenage free time with just had her 6th baby, so I made her this new baby boy card today.
The tartan accents on the card make me smile - I was her bridesmaid, and at the time was pregnant with my second child. She had us wear cream dresses with tartan sashes around them - I remember I had to be sewn into mine - my baby bump was making things not hang right! (I also spent many hours making an extremely complicated tartan dress for my 2 year old daughter, who was also a bridesmaid...) so yes - as I was saying - the card has tartan accents!!
 I used Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Cuts A2 Card with Circle Label for the card base, and a cream label cut and given stitching detail with Karen's 'Circle and Label, Stitched Framelits' dies.
I glued some twine using Beacon's glue to the card, and added stickers from Melissa Frances, and papers by Melissa Frances and October Afternoon.
 I used a Tim Holtz stamp for the sentiment, hearts from a Stampin 'Up punch, and stars from Tim Holtz's Crescent Moon and Stars Bigz die. This is my new go-to die for stars now... it cuts through any material, and has loads of stars in different sizes on it.

Some of products used:



  1. What a sweet PERSONAL Baby card - I love it. That little bunting across the top is such a nice touch.

  4. Such a great non traditional color scheme for a baby card. You always make the BEST choices for papers and colors. Love the sentiment behind this one!
