I attended a baby shower this past weekend so of course I just had to make a card. The parents-to-be are Virginia Tech alumni, so I knew right away I wanted a VT themed card.
You will need:
cutting board for straight edge
cardstock scrapbook paper
- tiny clothespin pack of 12 $2.99
- tape runner $3-$6 depending on the length and brand
- folding notecard and envelope $10.99 for a pack of 40
- adhesive letters $4.99
I’ve got to admit, my card-making process is not very structured. I don’t sketch out or make a quick diagram of what I want the card to look like. I generally just pick the cardstock colors I want to use, pick a phrase or name I am going to include, and start from there. I knew I wanted to make 2 “Hokie Prints”, with a 3rd little print to work with the “baby makes 3”.
I played around with the placement of the prints and the adhesive letters. Finally, I added a little red velvet cut-out heart to put on the “baby” hokie print.
The last touch was the tiny little clothespin that says “LIFE”. I will definitely keep this card in mind for my next baby shower. It was easy and the mama-to-be LOVED IT!
