Sending 'Bots' of Love

Good morning & Happy Monday! After sharing all of our new products for the February release last week, I wanted to start this week with an 'older' favorite of mine. If you tune in to our Facebook page, then you've probably seen the gorgeous pictures of the newest addition to Shelly Mercado's family, a beautiful baby boy named Kai.

I had so much fun picking out an outfit for the little guy since everything I buy for Madelyn has either pink, ruffles, or a built in tutu (and maybe even all three in one!). I found something totally boyish with the most adorable robots on it. So while robots aren't typically used in a 'congratulations on your new baby' card, I wanted my card to coordinate with the outfit so the Far Out stamp set was the perfect choice!

I started with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #87 for the layout. I cut the banners using Banner Stacklets 1 from coordinating papers in the Snap Color Vibe 6x6 pad. I wanted to keep the card crisp and clean so I added the banners to a Choice Snow White card base and rounded one corner. I stamped the image onto an oval cutout and colored it with Copics. Then instead of stamping a sentiment I used the coordinating Snap Letter Stickers to spell 'congrats'.

Here are the supplies you can find in the TE Store for this card:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Such a darling baby boy card, Taylor! It is always fun to pick out baby clothes. Maybe I enjoy it so much because my 'baby' boy is wearing mens sizes now :(

Your card makes me smile, whatever the occasion! I'm writing article for Paper Crafters Library featuring Robot themes & would like to feature this card & Taylored Expressions stamp set, Far Out. The article will link back to your blog & the TE stamp site.
