Just A Little Note

I love to make card sets. They are so fun, especially baby designed sets. I recently made these adorable cards that can be used for baby thank you cards, or for a note from a new mom or any other reason really.

The shape of this card is actually a die from papertrey ink. I started with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base folded and then laid my die on top while letting the die hang off the top edge of the card at the fold a little more than a quarter of an inch. I wanted to be able to open and close the card, not cut through both layers completely.

After I die cut the card, I stamped my cute whale image from Stampin' Up and my sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

It is hard to see, but at the bottem of the card, I scored a line about 1/2 inch up from the edge, and then I used 2 brads to make "snaps" on the baby onesie.

I left the card blank inside so it can be used for any purpose. I previously had made a set of these for my cousins baby shower and used a thank you sentiment. A new mom can always use thank you cards, right?
For this set, I paired the cards with kraft colored envelopes and packaged them in a clear box tied with a twine bow.

I think this would make a really cute gift for a new mom. I am selling them over at my esty store. And plan to make more colors and designs. It really is fun to make baby themed gifts.

Well, thanks for stopping by today! Happy Stamping!
