Boy-ish Congratulations

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend! Jon was gone, so I had plenty of time to catch up on cards, and some organizing.

My goal with this card was to make a congrats card for a baby boy. It's not a traditional baby card, but that's what I love about it. I love that I could take more masculine colours and use them in a way that would work for a baby card, or I could use it for something else male related.

This button wasn't in my original plan, but as I was moving things on my desk I found a button, so I added it to the card. I think it adds just enough embellishment without taking away from everything else.

I decided the keep the congratulations on this card simple (slightly smudged but simple). All the colours were pulled straight from the polka dots. It's easier than trying to find a pattern that has the colours I want in it.

Here's a side view. I used a kraft paper card base because I wanted to switch it up from always using white, but also still be able to write in it.

I'm going to be an auntie to two little babies this year, so I'd like to cover all my bases and make cards for both genders. Hopefully one of them finds out the gender and makes buying them stuff for the baby a lot easier!

Have a wonderful day!
