B is for Boy Card for THE CUTTING CAFE

A girl I work with (affectionately referred to as Mother Tucker) on my team is preggers and she just had her gender reveal the other day. For those of you past this point in your life, there is this new thing where you get dark colored balloons (or cake) and then when you pop the balloons, confetti inside tells you if they are having a little boy or girl. Anyhow, she is having a boy, which is where I got the idea for my card.

Of course since I haven't had a lot of time for playing with paint or inks I had to go all out and add splatters, stamps, bling, and hand dyed ribbon. Good thing I started with a strong base....

I used a step card from THE CUTTING CAFE. I also kit bashed a file from THE CUTTING CAFE called Baby Word Book for the B. Where I stamped the little boy, it's actually a page cut out with my Silly.

On the second card I used just the words from the file. Really love those embossed letters and that little flower cluster! Looking forward to getting this card off to some new parents I know...I hear they haven't been sleeping much so I think I'll pair up the baby gift with some tea!

Happy Friday!


  1. I absolutely love these cards. I especially like the first one with all the extras that you added. I have forgotten to make some of your hand dyed ribbon lately (will get some going again) Love that look. Did you make the background doilies? I can't stop looking at your creative juices that are flowing on this sweet card.

  2. MITRA my friend you always take things to a different height....these two cards are simply amazing my friend...i love love all the different elements you used on the card...what a beautiful gift for your friend.

  4. Wowzer!! These have so many of my favorite things! And the words you printed....on clear card Stock? you have a laser. Or what kind do you have?? These are awesome!

  5. Looks brilliant! Love the MM work in there.....really suits that big B..... & my! The things they do when preggers these days!!! Fun and Games. As for the new parents. Probably a tranquilizer is more on the cards!!!
