Baby Boy Announcement

Baby Boy Announcement with tag inserted - Front
This is one of the project I had in mind for a while but I could not make it until now due to my available time.

Inspirational Card Sketch (ICS) - ICSketch #132
I could not resist not to make this project when I saw the sketch of Inspirational Card Sketch (ICS) - ICSketch #132 sketch/challenge as shown above. Furthermore, this week Creative Card Crew challenge theme is babies! I just got an inspirational from these two (2) challenges and decided to make this project.

Baby Boy Announcement with pulled out tag
I decided to make a baby boy announcement card. Thus, the colors of the card are mostly blue based shades and hues. The Inspirational Card Sketch (ICS) - ICSketch #132 sketch/challenge layout has inspire me to make a pocket card so that an insert-able baby announcement detail tag can be insert into the pocket. 

Close-up : Vellum as pocket with stamped baby feet
In order to make the pocket, I decided to use light blue vellum whereby I stamped the baby feet onto it randomly to make a patterned vellum.

Baby Boy Announcement Tag - Front
 The baby announcement tag has two (2) parts - front and back. The front, scalloped white cardstock is stamped with a baby together with a bubble message "Hello". I purposely choose "Hello" instead of "It's a boy!" because I want the baby to say hello to the person who receive the baby announcement. The baby cloth is paper pieced with some patterned paper.

Baby Boy Announcement Tag - Back
The back of the tag, scalloped white cardstock is stamped with the baby announcement details. Both of the scalloped white cardstocks are then attached onto a circle blue cardstock whereby it has been attached with a round tab to hang the silver string for easier pull out from the pocket.
