baby thank yous

i promise not to turn this into a baby only blog, but i can't help but post a few baby-related items because, well, having a baby is rather consuming.

i made these thank you cards for shower gifts and other wonderful items we received along the way. finn has been so lucky and is spoiled beyond belief. i made 50 thank you cards and have one left (and it's ready to be written in and sent)!

in honor of the first born dogsons, i made a card with a simple dachshund onesie. i designed it in illustrator and used my gocco to print in aqua ink on white cardstock. while the ink was till wet i coated it with clear embossing powder and used my heat gun to emboss.

for the safety pin card, i drew a quick classic diaper pin. i again used my gocco and printed in silver ink. i embossed in the same way as the aqua ink, but the silver didn't raise as smooth and glossy. they were still adorable!

i hope the folks that received these thank you cards were pleased to see the little details. a card can hardly express how thoughtful they are and how thankful we are, but the gesture is the least we can do.

Hi Alauna,
I would love a set of 50 for my thanks yous for my baby shower in April. Are you willing to make some to sell?
