Baby Cards

Last weekend I went to a baby shower for my boyfriend's cousin who is having a girl. The party was great and was beautifully decorated. Everyone was given a frame in the shape of a shoe to display a photo of the baby once it arrives. It's adorable.

The shower was also great because it forced me to get making baby cards, which I have been planning on doing for a while. I made her the girl version of the baby feet card that I show here. I recently purchased gorgeous new white card from an online company. It gives a beautiful quality to these cards. The design is simple but stunning. The image and greeting are backed with pearlized card, which I also purchased from the same company. Amazing quality. The card is also finished with a quality white paper insert which is stamped with a cute paragraph about babies. I have to thank a fellow Etsian from whom I purchased the stamps to make this card:

The second baby card is just too cute. Who wouldn't want to hug that baby? I stamped a rattle and diaper pin as a background and mounted the baby image on 3D foam pads to add dimension. I finished the card with pink gingham ribbon and brads. This card contains the same paragraph stamped onto the paper insert, but in pink of course! I am adding a paper insert to all of my cards now, because I love the quality of this paper so much.

Both cards are available in girl and boy on my Etsy store.
