My Baby Boy Announcement


Baby Boy Announcement
Left : Front
Right : Back
Today is my baby boy, Jaxzel Kew full moon (Chinese tradition of one month old baby celebration and announcement). Thus, I made some baby announcement cards to be included in the red eggs distribution.

Close-up : Front
The whole card is on blue hues and shades as it is a baby boy! First, I stamped the wrapped baby onto a white cardstock follow by the sentiment "Baby Boy" below it. I paper piece the cloth that wrap the baby and colored the baby face with Copic marker. Then, I distress the white card with Broken China and it is my first time trying distress technique! The finished product is then attached onto a light blue rectangular card.

Close-up : Back
The announcement details frame is stamped on a white cardstock and distress the white card with Broken China as well. The finished product is then attached onto another light blue rectangular card. Some blue circle gems are attached to the four (4) corner of the announcement details frame.

I use a brad to hold the blue ribbon which coordinate with the cloth bow that wrap the baby. Then both the front of the card (wrapped baby) and back of the card (announcement details frame) are attached to each other to hide the brad finishing.

Bags of red eggs with announcement cards
Here are the baby announcement cards which has been inserted into a red organza bag which contains two (2) red eggs (the eggs are hidden behind the card). I purposely made the baby announcement card to fit the organza bag.

Lovely baby announcement card, you have put the stamps purchase to good use. I have never thought of personalizing baby announcement tag. Bright idea.
