27th Release Blog Hop: All Boy Baby Card

by Veronica

Welcome, welcome! You've probably hopped here from Tracy's blog. If you haven't, you can start this Blog Hop from the beginning at Emma's blog. Go ahead, I'll wait.

Today I'm showcasing the new Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die. This card is for a baby shower I'm going to tomorrow afternoon.


As you've probably guessed, IT'S A BOY! But the scallops on the bow die are a bit...girly. No problem! A little snip here and there and - VOILA! - they're gone! Easy peasy.

The sentiment is from Life is Good and I used a cloud embossing folder to 'baby' up the shirt. Looking at it, it's not much of a baby card, but I still think it's pretty cute.

  1. You are always an "outside the box" thinker with your projects and I always know I'm going to get great ideas when I visit. I love how you cut off the scallops on the bow for a different look. Another great idea to tuck away for when I get my bow die.
