Baby Boy word book

As you know I have recently become a Grandmother, and therefore a special card was called for.
I dusted off the ecraft and bought a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe for this baby word book. I cut it in fairly thin card because that was what I had in 12"x12", but now I know how it cuts I will try other card. I cut the letters in Papermania paper. Stamped Grandson using a stamp from a Papermania clear set and Sweet from a Basic Grey set. Ribbons are by Crafty Ribbons, I love the baby washing line ribbon and they have lots of other cute baby ribbons. Lots of embellishments from my stash.

Decorating inside was a challenge, I didn't want it to show through the letters when closed.

Cute stamp from Rubbadubbadoo, I think Celebrate is a Hero Arts stamp, not sure now.

Some more cute stamps from Wordsworth called Clearly Wordsworth, and the greeting in gold is two stamps again from Hero Arts, it was a bit late but they thought it was worth waiting for.

Here is the darling boy (Kenny) with his Uncle Richard (O.K. you are a darling too) and the Queen.

I bought another file that I couldn't get the ecraft to cut, will have to have another play. In between cutting the book and the paper letters the ecraft threw a wobbly and I had to wait for a new blade cap to arrive which seemed to fix the problem and I hope I don't have another problem with it now!
