Welcome Paul Maximilian

Hello Crafters,

my niece had a little son a while back (makes me feel so old, my sister is a granny now).
And today I'd finally like to show you the card I created for his birth. 

I didn't want the card to be too cutesy-baby, because it's not really the parents' style. I went for something more classy and timeless. 

I chose some off white card stock for the card base. As I didn't have a large bold star stamp, I used a die by Paper Smooches to create my own fun foam stamp. Then I stamped the stars with antique linen ink. The impressions are not perfect, which makes it look a bit distressed. But that was fine with me, it suited the card.

I adhered alphabet stickers for the name and some tiny wood veneer stars I still had for embellishments. 

It's a  very simple card, but I love how it turned out. That's it from me today, hope you have a great time


Paper Smooches: Anything goes
Stempelküche: Personalisiert
Simon says Stamp: For a child (I hope this card qualifies, despite the non-childlike style)
