I have several pregnant friends, so this is being shown at just the right time. I would love to make some pretty cards for the moms. They always keep them, so it's good to make special ones...

I think I would have flipped the envelopes to tie on the right side so that it would open like a book. Otherwise, beautiful envelopes...a gift in and of itself. Love the building of the floral displays. Nice! LOVE this product package offered this week!!!

I still have the 'Welcome Baby' cards from when my husband was born and I framed one along with the same silver certificate dollar that was in it. All of those people are long gone, so I am going to make some up to be sent to my great grandchildren; when they are born. That way, we can all share in the memory together. Okay, I realize there is a flaw in that plan; but at least my cards will be the prettiest ones. Thank you Yulia, for a beautiful example and a fun idea for the future. Lovely examples and so nicely done!

Love it! So sweet and a wonderful idea.

What size is the initial piece of paper? It looks too small to be 12 x 12.

07/29/2018, 11:59:51 PM,

Thanks to all Ladies!! Happy Papercrafting!
