Hello! I have a card to share today, and it’s not at all what I had planned, but I’m happy with how it worked out. I had stamped out a new baby stamp, all ready to watercolor, when I realized the baby has a bow in its hair. Not going to work for the baby boy card I need. Well, you know I recently did all that cleaning and reorganizing in my stamp room at which time I once again came across these chipboard letters I’ve never used. They came in such an appealing box… a testament to how packaging sells. I wonder how many things I can spell with those letters?
There’s a lot of designing, but no stamping on the card front. Baby’s family are horsey people so I thought it would be fun to use horsey, boyish paper. I used a Levi button, too.
The card measures 4 1/4” x 6”. I have a lot of envelopes to fit this size card, but I never remember to use them. It worked out great for this design. I think I’ve included all the card’s ingredients in the recipe (below), so I’m going to hurry off to do some of the things I didn’t get done while I was having fun in my stamp room. We’ll visit again soon. Enjoy your day!
