Baby Announcement or Congratulations Card

Red_ConfettiAugust 10, 2005

I found the instructions and pattern for this cute card in Simply Super Paper by Sandra Lounsbury Foose. Here is a link to the book description on Amazon - Simply Super Paper on Amazon.

The little baby shirt is made of cardstock, and the two front flaps open to reveal whatever message or picture you choose to put inside. I put a picture of the newborn baby inside with the words "Welcome Jeremiah."

I glued the shirt to the front of green cardstock, folded into a card with a message of congratulations inside.

You could also use the little shirt by itself as the card, putting the verse inside - on each inside shirt front flap, as well as the center section.

There are lots of wonderful creative paper ideas in the book. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys papercrafting!

Was just visiting one of my favorite template sites and there was the same template (Diaper Shirt Card) as I used to make the one above!

Even if you aren't interested in making the baby shirt card, the site is really worth taking a look if you haven't already - a wonderful site for card crafting ideas! Lots of templates...
