I just adore making baby cards. I think it's the colours I get to use :) I made a card for a dear friend who just had a baby girl, and loved it so much I made another one and couldn't stop there! I ended up making a whole baby girl and boy set! I used papers from Echo Parks Bundle Of Joy boy and girl sets. I love how well these papers co-ordinate. Both cards are shaker cards, with crushed glass as the shaker element. I used the Lawn Fawn stitched banner die to create the shakers. For the boy set, I used a clear pillow box to create a package that would easily fit some booties, a singlet or two, or something else small. I just filled mine with white tissue paper for the photo. I used Spellbinders labels 11 to make the tag. I just punched a hole in the top for the ribbon. I did the same for the girl tag. The little box in the girl set is from Stampin Up. I used left over papers to adhere to the box, and stamped the elephant from My favourite Things' Beautiful baby stamp set to add over the top. Such a quick and easy gift set to create.
