Welcome - Baby Boy Noah
I picked up on his name for the graphic on the card. I added the boy's name at the top. I printed it on ivory card stock then I cut the top of the element in a smooth curve with my Creative Memories circle cutter. I chose a turquoise card onto which I printed the sentiment in grey. I adhered the Noah's Ark element below the sentiment.
I repeated the element onto the cards I made for Mom. I used 4.25"T x 5.5" W quarter sheet printed cards I had on hand. I coordinated the turquoise in the left hand side in the ribbon and the colors in the ark image. I added his name above the element then printed the sheets. I cut sheets of 24lb in a coordinating color and cut them down from the quarter sheet size. I tacked them to the back of the cards. I punched holes from the top and bottom at about 1.5" from the left. I pulled a length of 1/8" satin ribbon through the holes and tied it in a knot.
These are very versatile cards. They can be used for thank yous for gifts received, they could be announcements, or used general baby correspondence. Mom is a card maker so she does appreciate handmade cards.
