Sweet Baby Gift

One of my coworkers is having a baby soon, so I decided to make a gift for him and his wife. I initially had the idea to make a set of Thank You cards, which I did, but I had trouble deciding how to contain them. First I thought I could use on of the new wood mount stamp cases, but it turns out I'd made too many cards to fit. I was humming and hawing when this months My Paper Pumpkin arrived. The bags were perfect! I decorated one to match the cards, even used some scraps to make a tag and I was done!

This is the card I made for them, taking some of my favourite elements from the others I made. All my coworkers will be signing it to give them when the time is right.

Last but not least, here are all the cards I made for them. You can click on any image to see it bigger, and a list of supplies is at the end of this post.
