Welcome to the June Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is My Guy (masculine card)! The Design Team has the added challenge of using texture (embossing, fabric, etc.). You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog.  We have something new…a “Stamp of the Month”. Each month a different image will be 50% off. This month- it’s the Grill. Be sure to check out the great deals on the Clearance Stamps, too. And as always, we have a  have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.

Hello Baby Boy 06485
For my card today, I added a couple of different types of texture..the dot embossing on the navy blue panel and the tiny little knitted sweater. I found some yarn in my stash that had these variegated blues/greens I thought would work for a baby boy card. I knit the little sweater on much smaller needles than called for then slipped the stitches onto toothpicks before attaching to the top section. The Hello die was cut once out of heavy white & once out of navy and stacked. The white border is actually the top of the Heart Scroll die.  The Baby Boy was stamped on a die cut little word window oval & added along w/ some buttons & a couple of pennant flags die cut from leftover scraps. Sorry, I forgot to take a pic of the inside 🙁

  1. I love it! Soooooo cute. Love the little skein of yarn and the “knitting needles”. This would be a really fun idea for a Christmas card too!
