Baby Dress Card

Baby Doll Dress

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.

Back of Blue Dress

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.

Front and Back

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.

Inside Pink Dress Card

Inside Purple

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.

    • Thank you! I’m working on a pattern which I’ll put up with a link on that post. I have an idea for a little boy version that I’ll try and do soon (a friend is expecting a boy in September, so I need to get on it!)

      It’s the first week of classes at the Community College where I work as an Administrative Assistant. Things are busy but good.
