Ombre Dapper Denim Baby Boy Card

Create a simple boy baby card using Stampin Up & Away Thinlits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

I created two of these simple baby boy cards in a snap!  I love the Dapper Denim layers of the hot air balloon created with the Up & Away Thinlits dies.  The ombre effect is created by cropping a Dapper Denim piece of Stampin’ Up! Color Theory 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Just one trip through the Big Shot for everything at once (except the heart)!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base with Dapper Denim card stock.  Adhere a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece or Real Red card stock on top.

Layer Up & Away Thinlits Dies on a Dapper Denim ombre piece from Stampin’ Up! Color Theory 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with a Magnetic Platform to keep things in place.

  1. What colors did you use for the pink balloon? So cute!

  2. I love the “deconstructed hot air balloon,” Mary! Such a sweet way to use these papers and this fun die! <3

  3. Great use of this die set and DSP for the ombré look. And I love that you used a set that I hadn’t considered for a baby card. Thanks for sharing all the details!

    • Absolutely, Amy. I think it would be equally cute in neutrals or pinks for a traditional baby girl card.

    Simply said…….ADORABLE. Love the red heart on the balloon. Really makes it pop off the blue ombre balloon.

    • I think this card could go far beyond baby boy . . . essentially any congrats. Thanks for stopping, Kadie.

  5. Very, very sweet!

  6. I love this card… clean and simple yet high impact…

    Thank you

  8. Lovely card xx may need to case, great for girls and weddings too xx

    • Wonderful, Lin. I think it could be many other colors (range of shades for an ombre effect) or a splashy mix!
