Thank You Cards

I wanted to give my friend some unique gifts at her baby shower this Saturday. One of the gifts I made her was hand made thank you cards. What new mom can't use thank you cards to hand out for all the wonderful goodies that she will receive for the baby?

I used Fiskars Baby Clear Stamps (pictured below) as the image and sentiment on my cards.

In order to achieve the soft lacy look at the bottom of the card, I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch. (pictured below)
I wanted to keep the thank you cards simple. As you can see below I used just 3 colors. Pink, white and black. Here is my finished card.
I made 10 and stacked them (with the envelopes) together and wrapped a pink ribbon around them. I wanted to create unique gifts for her, instead of the traditional baby clothes and diapers that people usually give. Of course I couldn't pass up a cute outfit to give her. So so far I have an outfit, the thank you cards pictured above and the photo frame pictured here. I really hope she likes them. And now I'm off to see what else I can create for her.
