A friend and fellow stamper just had a baby boy, so I needed to make a Baby Card to send to her, and I knew the Baby Bear Baby Boy card was just the ticket! (Phew, that’s a mouthful!) A few weeks back, I made a baby card for another friend who had a baby girl. You can see the Baby Girl card here.
Well, one of the sayings I’m fond of saying is “when you find something that works, stick with it”! So I decided to make the same card, substituting Pool Party Blue for the Flirty Flamingo pink in my original card. Here it is:
I used the same layout, and the Crumb Cake and white but changed the color from Flirty Flamingo that I used on the baby girl card to Pool Party for today’s Baby Bear baby boy card.
The Pool Party patterned paper is from the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper. I love how the Pool Party grid design is cheerful with a nod to masculine, compared to the Flirty Flamingo polka dot paper that has touch of whimsy and a feminine feel. Here are the two side by side:
It’s easy to make a baby card using the Baby Bear stamp set. The triple stamp creates the life-like fuzzy texture of the bear, and the photopolymer stamps allow for perfect placement of the 3 images. The crumb cake and white is a great neutral color combo that works well with so many colors, and the Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party are no exceptions. While I used a piece of thick Baker’s Twine in a matching color, I placed the bow under the Baby Boy Baby Bear‘s chin, and on the Baby Girl Baby Bear’s head. For the girl card, I used 3 pearls as an embellishment, while on the boy card, I used a candy dot.
