Quilled Baby Boy Shower Card

Published by at 1:28 pm under Quilled Card,quilling

My youngest daughter’s friend is having a baby boy and the shower theme is outer space. When she saw the Valentine’s Day lollipop cover I made with the rocket ship, she asked me to make a shower card with a rocket on it for her to give to the mother-to-be.

Normally, the idea of a baby shower conjures up images of baby booties, rattles, and teddy bears in soft pastel shades. When I found this nice blue mid-century modern space looking paper, I thought it would be fun to go a bit cartoonish with the quilling.

 

The rocket pattern is adapted from a free clip art picture I found on the Internet. I pulled the blue-yellow-red color scheme of the rocket directly from the patterned paper and outlined each section with a double thickness of black paper strips to give it a comic book feel. I just love the addition of the yellow star buttons that I found in my stash. The end result reminds me of Marvin the Martian’s rocket from the old Buggs Bunny cartoons.

Quilling doesn’t have to be girly – sometimes it’s fun to let your imagination take flight.
