I’ve been noticing some gorgeous babyshower postings on the web and collected a few favorites to share…enjoy!
Here is the card I made for the baby shower I talked about in my last post. Its sweet, simple, and sparkly.
I used a pink card, applied a tiny heart border along the fold, then stamped the card with the saying “Precious Little One” and sprinkled glitter onto it. I scallop punched the bottom right corner of the card and since I love my Martha Stewart elephant punch….I decided to place a green elephant in the middle of it. (it was actually on the inside of the card)
Then I took some cute buttons and attached them to the card using glue dots. Such a quick yet sweet card.
I went to another baby shower recently, yes…another shower. But this time, it was for a baby girl. I was excited about all the pink I was about to encounter 🙂
For her gift I made individual onesie cupcakes and a washcloth lollipop bouquet.
Onesie’s were rolled into a swirl, then wrapped with rubber band to keep them from unraveling. I then put each onesie into a white cupcake liner followed by a pink outer liner. I placed them inside cellophane and tied the top with a rubber band. To hide the band, I tied a pretty ribbon on top. and then hot glued a red glitter paper flower as a ‘cherry’ and then hot glued a tiny pink button to the center of the flower. Viola!
The lollipops were a little more time-consuming but the outcome was sure worth it. Two of the big lollipops contain two washclothes..so there is more of a swirl effect, the smaller ones had just one piece in them. Basically, I rolled them up, stuck them in cellophane, tied the bottom with rubber band so the washclothes wouldn’t unravel and then stuck a skewer into the rubber band. No gluing required! I would have used white lollipop sticks but I didn’t have any on hand and the skewers worked perfectly fine. ( I cut the skewers to the size I wanted)
I took a decorated take out box and stuffed it with crinkled paper and the lollipops. I had to adjust it a bit to make sure the weight was distributed everywhere. That was it!
The washcloth cupcakes was part of her gift (as seen in the previous post) but here is the card I made for my friend that’s expecting twin boys.
I started off with a green card from Paper Source. I punched out a 2.5 scallop circle of patterned cardstock and a smaller scallop of light blue cardstock. I needed a focal point so I took my Martha Stewart elephant punch and punched out two cute little elephants from teal and white polka dot paper. I then added a tiny heart to the two overlapping trunks with a foam dot. I punched the edge of the card and swiped some navy blue ink across it so it would pop. Then I cut some velvet scalloped ribbon as an embellishment for the card. I laid that down and then adhered the scalloped elephants on top. It was missing something so I took a pen and wrote out: GOOD THINGS come in multiples on the card. I added some glue and sprinkled some glitter on the Good Things to make it sparkle!
I added a punched out elephant to the envelope flap too! I think it turned out pretty good.
Happy Fathers Day to all the old, new and to-be dads! Its my husband’s first fathers day so I thought I’d make him a homemade card…and one for my father and father in-law.
The medallion card is for my husband…I made the pinwheel and punched a scallop shape out of some green scrapbook paper for the back and front of it, and then used sticker letters to spell DAD. The inside is what I like the best…I put green paint on my son’s hand and made a handprint on some blue paper…thats what is on the inside of the card along with what I call children’s writing done my an adult! Thought it was cute.
Check out the slideshow to see the cards…Enjoy!
I’ve had baby shower fever for a few days now. I know a handful of friends that just had showers and a few that are about to have one. The slideshow has some unique shower ideas and photos..some that I just had to share. The celebration of life is beautiful in itself but add some cake and boom! you got a party 🙂
I love baby showers..they are always fun and the guest of honor is always giddy with excitement to see all the decor, favors, food, and to open her gifts. I loved my shower..it was a birdie theme with brown and robin’s egg blue colors….very appropriate since those are my son’s nursery colors. Below are a few photos of my shower this past year.
