Baby Boy Box Card

Hi Crafters,

Well the weekend has arrived albeit a cold one here, I hope you are all safe and well.

Today I have a box card to share with you for a baby boy.
They're tricky things to take pictures of so I'm afraid there are quite a few to show all the angles.

Spellbinders Scalloped Pop Up Box Die
Baby Boy Cardstock - Limetree Crafts
Marianne Designs Pram (LR0218), Train (LR0308) & Baby Shoe (LR0304) Dies
Britannia Word Dies
Sentiment Stamps - Clearly Besotted Stamps & Kaiser Craft

This was made using a new die to me that I purchased at the NEC back in November, it's the first opportunity I've had to use it. It does make life easier when you don't have to measure everything and cuts like a dream. This card fits into a 6" x 6" envelope when flattened.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
OSAAT - #253 No Square or Rectangle cards
Crafty Cardmakers - #155 NEW: Baby, Marriage, Home etc
Fab n Funky - #287 For A Child
Creative Moments - #84 New Beginnings

Thanks for visiting today and for the lovely comments you have left on my previous post too. I appreciate and read every one of them.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

It's a cold one here as well Lorraine, but a welcome change after the dull rainy days of late.

What a super creation for a new baby, something really different for the new parents. And card from John and Rose, for years I purchased from them at the shows, only to find they are located just a few villages away and the lovely couple let me go and wander their warehouse, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

That looks like a die you will be getting plenty of use out of Lorraine. I was admiring this on FB. A beautiful new baby card, loving all the elements and the traditional colour combo.

The little shoes warm my heart and I adore the sweet baby goodies nestled within. I have never made one of these boxes but am so in love with the idea.

Gorgeous Lorraine! I'm always blown away by these exploding boxes, it must be a lot of work to get everything to line up just the way you want it! Love all the shimmer and the little shoes are so darling! hugs :)

Oh, it seems like ages since I made a pop up box card and now your beautiful design has inspired me...must do another one but so little time!
All the cute baby die cuts look fabulous popping out of the box and the whole design is both cute and elegant :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
