Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Nestabilities - Octagon Classic and Scallop Dies

You're right  -  It's for a boy!

On this card I've used the Baby folder to emboss 2/3rd of the front, embossed 3 lines with a scoreboard  and then with a SU punch made a decorative edge.  On the inside I did the same punched pattern on DP.  Very quick and easy, but effective! 
Nestabilities Octagon classic and scalloped dies make a simple mat for a stamped image, and because of the baby folder you don't need a sentiment!

I think this is a classic baby card.  What do you think?

Stunning card Eileen. I have the Plain Octagon Spellbinder but I think I will have to get the scalloped edged one as it really sets the other off well.
