Baby Boy card for Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

It is time for the ever popular Anything Goes at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge!  Use your stamps with one at least a year or more older and join the fun!

Within my circle of friend I know that there will be a new baby boy welcomed to the world soon so I took this opportunity to make a card to celebrate his arrival.  First I played around with some cardboard and my Cuddlebug Polks Dots embossing folder to pressure emboss light blue cardstock.  I wanted to have a flat surface in the bottom third of the card to stamp the sentiment.  The sentiment is stamped in Delicata Sapphire Blue, and is  from Fiskars Teeny Tiny that came out in 2012.  Next I die cut 6 small squares with Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Squares and used the very old (1997) Peddler’s Pack images of different baby toys.  They are stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer.  The Sapphire Blue is a newly released color of Delicata and it is so much fun!  The card base is sponged with Delicata in Silvery Shimmer before the elements are adhered with dimensional foam adhesive.  Clean and simple design with a bit of shimmer!

Thanks for stopping by and do check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations over at Retro Rubber!  Join the fun and create your own anything goes project to enter into the challenge.

I would like to enter the following challenges with this card:


  1. Neva, I like your modern baby card, it's lovely, the colours are so delicate and the embossing adds great detail. Cx

  2. Sweet card! I love having boy and girl cards handy at a moment's notice since they come when they feel like it LOL. You are all set with this adorable card now. Now, get ready because there's a good chance they'll have a girl! :)

  3. I like the way you've kept some flat space for stamping the sentiment. The dots work a treat for a baby card.

  4. Wish I could see this card in person! I bet the sheen is so pretty! Love the dotted texture. So smart of you to leave an untextured area for the sentiment. Great job!

  5. Very sweet baby card, I bet the little toy images shine very pretty indeed.
    How clever the way you left the space there for your sentiment when you embossed the panel, can I ask you how did you do this?
    Thank you in advance.

  6. What a darling sweet baby card. Those tiny stamps are perfect for your blocked layout. Very cute!
