It's A Boy! Card for Colour Q Challenge #34

Hello Tuesday! Love Tuesdays because it's a new Colour Q Challenge! This week is a sweet combination of Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue (Retiring), Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, and Whisper White! Perfect for a baby card, which I also made for the challenge at CC EE Stampers.
Here's what I came up with based upon the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! My card size is 4-1/4" square, which can still fit into a standard A2 envelope! Using my Big Shot, I die-cut the larger Scallop Circle from the Scallop Circles #2 die. The Paper Piercing Tool was used to punch holes in each scallop!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:

  • My sailboat was made using the 1-3/4" Circle Punch as the boat. The sails were first punched out with the 1-3/8" Square Punch and the 1-1/4" Square Punch, then cut into triangles!
  • Using the Polka Dot square stamp in the For All You Do stamp set, I stamped the polka dots in Chocolate Chip ink on the Chocolate Chip card stock for the boat!
  • The 'It's a Boy!' sentiment is from the Nursery Necessities stamp set and is stamped in Whisper White Craft ink!
  • Ballet Blue is retiring! It's part of the COLOR RENOVATION! Click here for more information! Some of our favorite colors have been selling out quickly!
