Baby Boy Dresser Card

Hello everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at the Unstampabelles. The theme for this month is 'Boys will be boys' and the twist is to journal about the qualities of a good masculine card. Masculine cards are generally a challenge to make, for people especially like me who cannot refrain from adding a flower, butterfly or a rhinestone. Our challenge encourages you to have a go at making a card for a male of any age, without the use of stamps!

Here is my inspiration:

I was planning to create a dresser card for a long time. Initially I thought of using brown cardstock for the dresser. Then I thought most of the baby dressers in Ikea is white or a light color. So I went with white :) The polka dot embossed card is from DCWV.

I had cut the onesie with my Cricut Explore previously. I embossed the teddy bear using an embosser and then followed the lines to fussy cut it. I added the eyes and nose with my black gel pen.

I used my tiny baby handprint punch to cut the shape of a baby's hand and added it to a frame which I inked with light blue ink.

I added a banner with the hand-written sentiment 'It's a boy'. I folder a piece of the same pattern paper I had used for the onesie to resemble a blanket flowing out of the drawer.

What do I consider to be the qualities of a masculine card -First of all, no butterflies or flowers. And certainly no pink. Sports, Super heros and gadgets can be added as the main focus.
