Baby Boy Shower Card

 This card was easy to make but difficult to photograph.  The 'congrats' is actually a blue green foil die cut but it looks black here.  The base of the card was made using an old Sizzix die set. I like the scalloped edges and the neat way it folds and the circle swivels out.  However, the folded parts are what make the card hard to photograph.
 The words 'There's a bun in the oven' are stamps from a Lawn Fawn set. I tried to find a thought balloon or banner to stamp them on but ended up cutting out my own balloons because they needed to hold the words and fit behind the 'congrats' circle.  Even though I didn't use it, the Doodlebug Designs pop-up sticker was the inspiration that started this card.  The sticker did not fit behind the circle but luckily I did have the LF stamp set so I printed my own oven and colored it in.  The Studio G mother-to-be stamp was purchased from HM Ben Franklin for only $1.50.  This card was fun to make because it required minimal coloring and the dies cut out all the parts.  I suspect I will have many more baby cards to make because our family and friends seem to be expanding rapidly. Hooray!
