Baby Boy

Good day to every body on this sunny day over here in Luxor. Temperature is already getting high. Today around 35C but end of the week 38C. So my swimming pool is ready in time! Lucky me. Lol.
Thanks again for all your visits on my latest cards and your lovely comments. Love to read them.
But back to my card for today. Last week I made a card for a baby girl so I thought, I do have to make a card for a baby boy to.
So on to making one. And this is what I came up with.
Again I used a decoupage sheet from Nellie Snellen, "Vintage Baby Boy".
Instead of using blue for this card I decided to use mint green. I like this colour also for a boy.
The papers I used are from a very old paper pad from Kaisercraft, "Secret Bird Society".
I matted the picture on kraft card stock which is made with a die of Crealies, "XXL Stitch Vierkant 22". I was left with a frame what you normally throw away. But this time I used it around the picture and put it around it but not totally in the middle.
I made a edge with a Doohickey from Magnolia which is all little stars. I saved some of the cut out stars and put them later back on the card.
The other star die I used is from Die-Namics, "Stacking Stars".
The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley, set 26, "Simply Sophisticated". After that I cut it out with a die (I don't know any more from which company) and attached that with some jute twine to the square.
In the left corner I put a little tag behind the papers. I decorated it with paper from the paper pad and put a stamp on it from Personal Impressions. On top of the tag I glued a little bow from jute twine.
Other materials used are some Vintage Seam Binding and some flat back pearls.
The inside of the card I decorated also but kept it simple. Only stamped a little baby boy on it with a stamp from Marianne Design, "Eline's Toddlers" and embossed the stamp with WoW! Embossing powder, "Seaglass".
So that was it for today peeps. I'm off to colour up a new stamp for my next card. Thanks for passing by and hope you have a wonderful day!

Wat een lieve én mooie babykaart Caroline. Lieve kleurtjes en mooie opbouw, er valt genoeg te bewonderen. Je kaart is tot in de puntjes afgewerkt vind ik en daar kan ik echt van genieten. Leuk detail dat dubbele strikje op dat kleine label.
Geniet van je zwembad :)
