CAS New arrival

I have very few baby cards laying around, so with the LIM's challenge "New beginngs" this week I thought it would be a good opportunity to get a head start on at least this year's known births. Even though you normally have about 6 months to prepare for the new arrival, I always seem to be making baby cards at the very last minute. And nowadays the gender is usually known well in advance too.
I have a colleague who's expectiong a baby boy in May. This card might be for her. I used a little boat stamp with red and grey ink and I traced the black lines with a pen afterwards. I also did the waves. I was inpsired by the sketch over at Freshly made Sketches:


I added 3 enamel dots, two grey and a red. There's no blue on this card but I think it suits a boy anyway. The colors are inspired by the photo of Color Throwdown.

This card is for:
Less Is More - #312 New Beginnings
Color Throwdown - #426 Color Inspiration
Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #271

I love the clean look of this... excellent interpretation of FMS's sketch! Agree: no blue needed to make this a boy-card.

This is a great baby card. I think I even had a wee sailboat somewhere...I will have to dig it out and give this a try.

PS Don't bother with the vellum glue. Although it shows less than regular glue, it still shows through!
I used to use the teensy tiny brads but they are hard to find now and have been reeplacd by a slightly larger version that cost extra to mail as it has too much depth!

A great little theme for a new baby card, and I love that you've stepped away from the traditional baby blue. Still super cute though.
