Card-making day!


My rendition of a pregnant lady with a gathered ribbon "collar" and one that simply says It's a shower and has ribbon and a paper quilled ducky :-)


I thought this one was cute. It's of an old-fashioned baby carriage with button wheels. I free-handed it so it's not quite as perfect as I would've liked. 



On the left is just red scrapbook paper with "she's expecting" (a stamp I bought for like a dollar at michaels) and ribbon and polka dot paper at the top. On the right is a simple pregnant lady profile (free hand) and a square of cool stripey paper cut out with cool zigzaggy scissors with "she's expecting" stamped on it.

Feedback please!

  2. Lizzie are you looking for votes on which card to use for the baby shower invites? For me its a tie. the pregnant red dress with the black ribbon ruffle and the baby carriage with the button wheels. The button wheels are the best. And the charm of this card is that the carriage is NOT perfect (handdrawn).

  3. Thanks pfd...my friend made some too, but I didn't want to take her credit. I may put some of those up so you can see though.

    Samgram originally I was going to do like five of each kind, but we ended up getting carried away and doing each card differently :-) My preggy sis liked them, I sent her pics.

  4. Oh I love the baby carriage with the button wheels!!!!!!

    I like the fact that its hand drawn makes it one of a kind and not mass produced...

  7. Very nice -- looks like you had a fun day -- I agree about the handdrawn carriage. It's the imperfections in handmade that makes it special.

  8. My favorites are the pregnant belly in red dress & the baby carriage. But, really they're all adorable because as someone said previously, they're hand made,--and that's just precious....Oh and they look kind of retro which I love!

  9. They are all pretty - I like especially the old fashioned buggy one, and the little paper quilled ducky :D

  10. Looks like perhaps we should've just done carriage and pregnant lady ones lol. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
    I had a jar of buttons that is now half used up, hopefully I'll find some more soon :-)
