Cards for Baby ~ quilled elements

I recently came across these baby cards that I made nine years ago in 2002 and decided to share. Remember the speckled paper with matching envelopes that was thick but soft? And I used to put a ribbon in every card I made :) For these I used small paper punches, a few pearls, thin satin ribbon and quilled elements. The balloon string is wire.





The following is a variety of baby buggies for cardmaking or scrapbooking. These were made about five years ago. I weaved 1/8" paper strips and added a glue backing. When dry, I cut out a circle and a piece of the circle .. trimming to the center and then at an angle. Crimping the strips makes it easy to use as multi color trims and adds dimension.

Primary Colors

Twins

Baby Girl

Vintage

Baby Boy

Next: coordinating quilled nursery elements to add for scrapbooking pages.


Thanks for looking!
