Handmade Cards for Baby Gifts

It seems like a lot of my friends are due with babies, and it's a never-ending, gift-giving, craft-making opportunity! I still enjoy making onesies for the newborns, and snack/sippy cups for turning one, but you always need a card to go with a gift!
I'm all about mass production these days. Honestly, with the time you spend to make one card, you can duplicate your design and make a handful without much extra effort. (I've been doing the same thing with meals, doubling and freezing the extras!)
So I found a CUTE design on the Silhouette Store....

...and took advantage of Michael's 5/$1 scrapbook paper (I know I had plenty, but sometimes you need fresh paper to get you motivated!) and got to work on 3 boy cards and 3 girl cards. That should last me the year, right? 
Once all the pieces were put together I had fun embellishing them with buttons, brads, sparkles and a fun saying! There's plenty of room on the inside to write a personal message, and they'll be a fun addition to an already personal gift.

We hope you stop by later this week- our friend Abby from The Cards We Drew is celebrating her birthday all week with awesome roundups and over $1000 in prizes given to three winners.  Come back Wednesday to enter!
