This sweet card is perfect for a baby shower or birthday card for a little girl. I’ve been meaning to post it for awhile and I just made two last week so I got some new photos.
I used purple polka-dot paper for this one and part of a doily for decoration. I also added some detail with a white gel pen. This was for a co-worker who is expecting a baby girl in September.
Another colleague has two new-granddaughters this summer and for her I made one in pink with little heart trim on the pinafore.
It is fun decorating both the front and back of these cute cards.
A white gel pen works well for stitching, lace and button details. Don’t forget to include your initials or signature on the back of your beautiful, handcrafted card.
Inside, I cut a piece of white card stock to look like a little petticoat. Some trim and a nice greeting complete the card.
Scallop scissors make a pretty hemline and dashes of pen look like ribbon trim.
I punched a heart out of the doily to decorate the back of the envelope.
A few years ago, I made a yellow dress with a pinafore out of printed vellum.
White and yellow-orange ink trimmed the scalloped hem. A little adhesive jewel embellished the collar.
A piece of ribbon for a bow added a realistic touch.
I’ll put a link to a pattern for this card soon.
