Boy oh boy!

My daughter Julie, who is my best customer, asked me to make a Baby Boy card for her for a new Baby Boy named Noah.

I wanted to use my Whipper Snapper Designs stamp set, so I found the poem with the definition of “What are little boys made of” on the Internet and wrote it in the inside of the card.

In case you don’t remember the poem, here it is:

What are little boys made of?

What are little boys made of?

Frogs and snails, and puppy-dogs tails,

And such are little boys made of.

So my stamp set was perfect! It had a frog, a puppy, a dirty little boy and bugs…. I used a “masking technique” to be able to have the little boy in front of the truck and his hat on his head, without seeing his hair through the cap…. 🙂

I also had those little alphabets beads, so I wrote Noah’s name just below the image.

The patterned paper I used is something else I was hoarding and as I said before, I will try to use my old stuff… so this is patterned paper by Debbie Mums… so cute, most of the sheets have glitter or raised parts on them…

I colored the images with Copics markers, then I applied some Glossy Accents on some parts of the image: the wheels, bumpers and windows of the truck, the frog’s eyes, the bug’s wings and the greeting on the card: Boy oh Boy….

I cut the image and the mat with Nestabilities. I also sponged some Distress ink (Old Paper) on the edges of the stamped image before removing the Nestabilitie die.

The cardstock base is Stampin’Up Cardstock.

Oh almost forgot – here is the card:
