Cards for baby

It is fun to create baby cards!!  I made this set of cards for a couple who are expecting a baby girl any time now.  As new parents they will have all sorts of things to take care of so I thought a few cards would be good for them to have on hand.
I used white cardstock (8.5" x 3.5") for the base of the cards and added pieces of pink embossed cardstock to complete the fronts to fit in #8 envelopes.  I added a border punched strip that I sponged a bit on each edge and then added some double sided ribbon - white and pink. I tied a short length to the main piece to simulate a bow.  I layered the embellishment right over where the white and pink cardstock are joined.
I used a watercoloured canvas to create a little envelope for the cards.  A fitting presentation!!


Baby card

Baby cards!!  Made this card up from a kit and it is perfect for a bright and sassy baby card!!  You can see a few more from this sketch here.
The strips of paper are simply woven and glued to the embossed card front as a unit.  The cute little horse image is from Beccy's Place.  It is watercoloured and mounted to a coordinating scallop circle (Nesties) which I embellished with dots using a white gel pen and mounted to the card front using 3D foam tape.  The little greeting was a tag I created using the SU eyelet border punch but the square end seemed out of place so I simply punched the other end as well which created more balance!!
