Baby Boy

Good afternoon everyone, welcome to my blog ,Today I am sharing a cute baby boy card created using Tonic Studios Silhouette  babies balloons, Bunting and bunnies die set which is adorable.
 Materials used to create this card:-
Craft perfect- cornflower blue
Craft perfect - Bright white
craft perfect- kraft card
Craft perfect -  french blue
White A3 300gsm base card stock
Nuvo natural Twine
Basic layering & scallop circle dies
Hole punch
Essentials Baby boy sentiment
Essentials New Baby sentiment
Basic square layering die sets

The card base is just A3 white card stock 300gsm scored in half trimmed down the the width you want the card and then measure in each side from the top how much you want to trim the corners off but try and measure it so that both sides are even.
Then die  cutting the square layers in cornflower blue,kraft card & bright white  for your layers glue the top white layer flat to the Kraft card then add foam tape to the reverse and stick this to the blue base layer then add foam tape again to the blue layer and place on the card.
Now with a fine liner pen go all the way around the white top layer and free hand add faux stitching  just to draw the eye in towards the focal point. To the top of the card you need to add the circle die cuts so score each circle in half and glue the two circles together with wet glue once dry place over the top of the card and with a good hole punch, punch a hole right through the circles and the card now thread the natural Twine through and tie a bow this has also  had the Faux stitching added around the edge of the white circle. 
Now we are ready to cut the baby grow out in cornflower blue for the outer base die then with the inner detail Die cut out with white craft perfect glue these flat with wet glue now cut the detail Die out again in French  blue craft perfect and with a pair of scissors snip off carefully the booties,dummy,star,mitten and balloon.
Then cut the same die cut again in Kraft perfect card stock and snip the bunny out then back it with a darker brown and cut around free hand with scissors just for a finishing touch I added white and black nuvo drops for his eyes and a little satin bow around the neck before sticking the outer layer down make sure you back the balloons with Kraft card.
To finish the card add the baby & boy sentiment  these are two different sentiment sets the baby is from the New Baby die set and the Boy is from another baby boy die set just a little snipping required.
