Baby Card

It seems like I've been making more cards than layouts lately. I'm not gonna lie, it's fun! I love being able to get a finished project in so much less time. I also love using up my scraps. You can do so much more with so much less when making cards.

My son and daughter-in-law still have not announced the sex of their baby so I've been making crafts that are teal (if it's a boy) and lavender (if it's a girl). They will be hosting a gender reveal dinner on the 28th, so I don't have too much longer to wait, but boy it seems like forever!

The card today is a teal (boy) version. I'm helping a friend with putting on a baby shower at the end of August so I'm trying to come up with ideas for invitations, thank you notes, decorations and favors.

 
The only definite thing I know is that there will be a gray chevron pattern that will be used regardless of the baby being a boy or a girl, so you'll be seeing a lot of that in the near future. The font stamp for the banners is from Close to my Heart and is called Glamour, Lower Case Alphabet.
 
Here is the inside:
 

I used the pennants punch from Stampin' Up and everything went together very quickly. I also used the itty bitty punch pack from Stampin' Up and brads to hold the banner together on the front of the card.
