Inspired Stamps Designers Choice Card

For this weeks Inspired Stamps Design Team we got to choose our project.  So with that in mind I set out thinking what kind of card to make. First I went through my stash of unused card class material, and chose a criss-cross pocket card.   I then went through my basket of cards to see what I needed.  I realized I was low on baby cards and since my Dad's side of the family had 3 more babies due this year (we already had 2 boys in Feb & April), I figured I better get some cards ready for when they arrive.  Here is the card I came up with.

 I made this little boy card using another one of Inspired Stamps His Little Ones: Boy Praying, I am getting addicted to playing with these cute little guys.  I have several of them on my wish list and am thinking I just might have to get them all, as they are all adorable and great for use on cards.  I love paper piecing these together, and am thinking of experimenting with coloring these guys soon (I am still a little doubtful on my coloring abilities).  The sentiment is from More Perfect Sentiments again, I seem to be reaching for this stamp set the most lately.  The little stars on the boy's pj's are from the Made By Stamp Set.

This is the card with the insert pulled out.  I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card and plan on attaching a gift card on the lower half of the card.  Of course I made this a boy card and since none of the parents want to know what they are having I am not sure I will need this (and with my luck they will have all girls and I will have to make new ones.)

Here is a close up of the paper pieced Boy Praying.
