Our Boy Two Card Mini Album

 What happens when you take a couple of the shaped card bases and your favorite Doodlebug Designs' collections? A fun and unique mini album!   

Today we're focusing on some ways to incorporate the Confetti Sprinkles and new Sunshine Alpha Stickers, along with the Special Delivery Collection, in embellishing this cover and album!



I started with two of the brown card bases from the Cards & Envelopes-Special Delivery: 4.75X4.75 with the window opening and the 4.5X4.5 file folder shape.  

The larger card was used to create the pocket cover for the mini album.  I modified the card by scoring two sections.  Placing the card onto a scoreboard, I scored at 4.25"; flipped it 180 degrees and scored again at 4.25".  From a strip of paper I cut two 4"X1" strips.  The strips were scored at 1/2" and 3/4" and glue inside of the card as shown below:


Next, I cut a 3.5X3.5 square of patterned paper and attached it behind the opening of the card.  I chose a print with scattered dots and then highlighted them with various sized dots from the Confetti Sprinkles!


When adding the "Our Boy" I first used three layers of the Bon Bon colored letters and stacked them.  I followed the three layers with a single Lily White letter and slightly off-set them.  I love the 3D, shadowed-look that it gives!  A few of the heart shapes from the Confetti Sprinkles were also used.



For the little album inside, I simply used the file folder card as the cover to strips of folded patterned paper.  I attached one of the Sunshine heart stickers and baby blue star sprinkle to the tab and added a 3X4 card to the front.  The sun on the card was accented with a Doodle Pop sun!


With the various sized dots found on the Confetti Sprinkle sheet, you can add little cheeks or big cheeks! 



Here I used one of the "X" Sunshine stickers to mimic a hand-stitched accent.





    
                The patterned papers were cut into 8.25"X3.5" strips, folded in the middle and then sandwiched together.  I used white elastic cording to hold the pages in place and then wrapped it around the file folder card.

Please tune in to my YouTube Channel where I will have a tutorial of a similar project!
