Sshhhh… baby sleeping…

Nicole and Tyson sitting in a tree:


First comes love,

then comes marriage,

then comes baby in a hot pink carriage.


baby shower thank you cards, baby carriage, pink and black

My friend requested some black and pink thank you cards to match her baby shower. I had never made thank you cards before so I was a bit nervous. I am quite happy with the way they turned out though. These weren’t too complicated to make either. I just had a lot of trial and error before I got it just right. It was all getting the right measurement and, unfortunately, I don’t have those measurements to give you 🙁  So you can get off your lazy bum and figure it out yourself! On the bright side you can make them whatever size you want and feel a little more accomplished that you did it all by your little lonesome. High five to you! If you are super curious and can’t figure it out, I can try to recreate and get those measurements for you. At least right now I can tell you what you will need:

1) Hot pink solid cardstock, black and white polka dot paper, white cardstock, transparent paper, & pearl adhesives. Don’t forget the basics: glue, trimmer, a Cricut, and my carriage .svg ! Just click below!

I always try to give credit where credit is do. I buy my supplies at Michael’s and a local craft store called Treasured Mememories Scrapbooking Store. It’s always convenient to run to Michael’s but I highly suggest checking out Treasured Memories if you are in the area of Oak Park, CA area. Or visit their website to shop online: http://www.treasuredmemoriesca.com/.

Put it altogether now:

1) Make folded hot pink papers to whatever size you desire. I usually trim a slightly smaller white card to go on the inside so people can write their notes in it.

2)Print the “Thank You” on transparent paper. I usually set it up on Photoshop and print on 4×6 pieces then trim to the size needed. Use spray adhesive to glue onto pink background.

3.) Cut polka dot paper to desired size and glue on transparent paper. Then cut white circle to glue on top of polka dot paper.

4.) Use the Cricut to cut out my Baby Carriage.svg, and use Pop-up adhesives to give it a cool effect. I also added pearl adhesives in the middle os the wheels to fancy it up! And there you have!

This is a fun design that you can obviously play with and make your own with different colored and pattern paper. Add some bling or what not and you will have some pretty schnazy “thank you” note cards! Who knows.. maybe someday soon I will be making these for my own baby shower! Ya, right! Like I am going to make my own cards! Better yet, like I am going to have a kids soon! NEVER!!! You can’t make me mom and sis!
