Big Shot Baby Boy Bib in Blue

Can you say that fast six times? lol! Since I've already made a couple for girls, I just had to make one of these fun baby bib cards for a boy! They are so easy and cute!

Bashful Blue cardstock forms the base. I folded it in half, placed the fold about 1 1/4" below the top of the scallop and ran it through my Big Shot with the large Scallop Die so it would remain uncut at the top. I covered the front with a Bashful Blue argyle print paper scallop cut with the same die from the Prints Pack (Hostess Level 1 from the Spring/Summer catalog). Just perfect for a sweet baby boy!

I made dots with my Signo Gel Pen around the scallops and neck and put the Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, knotted at each end, around the neck. The ribbon is attached with Mini Glue Dots. Check my previous bibs posted here to find the directions and a video by Christie Daugherty.

The little sailboat from Nursery Necessities is the focal image. The stamp was colored with markers then stamped. The oval shape was cut with the Coluzzle Cutting System oval template then layered on Brocade Blue cardstock and trimmed to match the white layer with my Paper Snips. (These are wonderful detail paper cutters!! So sharp and cut so easily!) The little star is from the Starstruck set and is adhered with a Dimensional.

Stamps: Nursery Necessities, Starstruck
Inks: Real Red, Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue Stampin' Write Markers
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Brocade Blue cardstock; Bashful Blue argyle from Prints Pack (Spring/Summer Hostess Level 1 set; Bashful Blue Patterns DSP from Fall/Winter Catalog would substitute perfectly)
Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop Die, Signo White Gel Pen, Coluzzle Cutting System, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Stick
I love making these! They are so easy and fun and would be just perfect for baby announcements, new baby congratulations or gift enclosure cards!

Happy Friday! Have fun stampin'!
