I'm a gran again!

This morning my fourth grandchild, and first grandson, was born to my daughter, who lives in France, and her husband. As you can imagine, I've spent a lot of the morning on the phone but I've still managed to squeeze in time to make a card for them. Well, actually I had most of the card already made, because we knew the baby was going to be a boy, but I somehow felt a bit superstitious about finishing it off completely and adding the embellishments in advance, so it was waiting for "D-day" for me to add the finishing touches.

I got the idea of making a chest of drawers out of a stepper card made from kraft from the Docrafts magazine. Knowing the baby would be a boy, I used blue papers from the Graphic 45 Precious Memories range to create the drawers. The die cuts are made with an X-cut set (the name escapes me and doesn't seem to be on the backing sheet!)



I'm joining in with the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Sparkles - More than one fold
Shopping Our Stash - Layer it on me
The Crafters Café - Shaped cards
