CIE For the Boy

Hi, everyone! It's the first Monday of the month... which means it's time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge. Our theme for the next couple of weeks is "No Girls Allowed"... just in time for Father's Day!  

However, I took a slightly different take for my card.

Recollections seaside pack and white cardstock; stash acetate
Stampabilities It's a Girl image, heat embossed in Stampin' Up! white powder
computer-generated original sentiment
Cuttlebug embossing folder; SU twine; ArtMinds sequins
adhesives: Scotch ATG; X-Press It foam; Ranger multi medium matte

Bobbi's Card
The card above was sent to a dear friend's daughter and son-in-law upon the arrival of baby Connor. Since I had made some baby shower invitations for this blessed event a few months earlier, I decided to model my card after the invitations. And, then for a little extra pizzazz, I decided to make this one a little more special than the invitations by adding the shaker element.

Moreover, giving credit where credit's due, the invitations were a CASE of my friend Bobbi's card. I loved the simplicity of the white and pink, as well as the sweet image inside of an oval.

Remember Cards in Envy entries need to be flat, non-lumpy, non-bumpy to qualify for CIE honors. However, the A2 size requirement has been lifted.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
