Here’s one last set of Thank You cards that I made for baby gifts. I decided that I should get a head start on them before the baby came, since I probably wouldn’t have time afterwards. The problem though, is that we are not finding out the sex until the baby is born. Therefore, I had to be a little creative in my colour scheme. What I decided to do was to just simply use the colours of the nursery. We painted the nursery the colour of Stampin’ Up’s “Certainly Celery” cardstock. I simply took a piece of the cardstock to Home Depot and they matched it perfectly! I even held the cardstock up to the wall once it was painted and it’s incredible how perfectly they match! The bedding is from Pottery Barn:
and has some yellow, brown, and khaki in it, so I compared the colours to Stampin’ Up cardstock and matched it to So Saffron, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake. I then took my Fox and Friends stamp set – the first stamp set I bought from Stampin’ Up, and one of my absolute favourites, and I made this “decorative paper” using the above mentioned colours:
Next, I chopped it all up – into 5” x 3 3/4” pieces. I also cut up the Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake cardstock to 5 1/4” x 4”. Layered the decorative paper on top of the plain cardstock, and adhered it all together. Here’s a look at the final pieces:
The sentiment is from a stamp I bought in the $1.50 section at Michaels, it’s adhered to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. I used some scraps to create the little scallop under the sentiment, popped that piece up over top of a piece of ribbon.
The most time consuming and tedious part of creating these cards was stamping the images onto the whisper white cardstock – it took a long time! Once that was over, everything else was easy to whip up. I mass produced about 64 of them. I’m not saying I’ll have to send out that many, I just wanted to make sure I had enough cards on hand that I won’t have to make any more of them!
Well that’s it for now, thanks for stopping by to have a look!
