Baby Shower Gifts ...

Good morning! Today I'm sharing some Baby Shower Gifts I made featuring several Great Impressions Stamps


Whenever I am invited to a Shower, Baby or Bridal, I always give A1 Thank You cards as one of my gifts. As we all know, Thank You cards are a necessity for any of these events.


I mass produced a set of 30 Thank You cards for a baby girl. I cut 30 pieces of Classic Natural White cardstock into panels, stamped the lovely Baby Bassinet and part of the Being You Sentiment, which I cut up, with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored only the ribbon on each Baby Bassinet and then layered the panel on Pink cards that I cut to size for A1 cards (3-1/2" x 5"). I made coordinating envelopes for each card by stamping a portion of the Baby Bassinet on Natural White Envelopes, once again coloring only the ribbon on each.

Next up is the Bookmark I made to attach to the Diaper Raffle. Why a bookmark you ask? The recipient wanted books to read to her baby instead of receiving a card with each gift. 


I continued the design for the Bookmark using the Baby Bassinet, and adding the New Little Baby Sentiment under the image. 

You may be wondering what I meant about cutting the Being You Sentiment.  Since the stamps are cushioned red rubber stamps they are very easy to cut apart, and then line them back up to use as they are designed. Here is what the original stamp looks like, without the background effects.
