The Card Concept #13 - Oh Baby!


Time for lucky challenge #13 at The Card Concept! The theme for this challenge is Oh, Baby - make a baby-themed card.



I focused on the baby buggy cookie to create my Clean & Graphic Card. Simple colour blocking and a bit of texture (just a bit) keep this card feeling very clean. I used a Clearly Besotted die and a little heart punch as well as my MFT Grosgrain texture plate.

Coincidentally, my baby boy was born on this day, 15 years ago! Seems like yesterday! Happy Birthday, Struan!


Our Rules
  1. Use the Challenge to create a card.
  2. Choose one of the design team "styles" to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary.
  3. Explain in your post which style you used.
  4. Link up your blog post here, not your whole blog.
  5. Comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. Everyone loves comments!
    This challenge will end on Monday, July 7 at 3 pm EDT.
