For The Mom To Be

Sunday afternoon several of my co-workers and I are putting on a baby shower for one of the girls at work. It looks to be a very good time!

Since I make cards we could NOT buy one right? With a dozen and a half people needing to sign the card I made this one a little larger at 6 x 6. I knew the inside still would not be big enough so I added a piece of cardstock that measured 5. 5 by 11, scored it in half and then scored 1/2" on either side of the center score. That is where I taped it down to the inside of the card. Now there are flaps that people can write on ;) I hope I made sense....lol

This is an old image from H&M stamps and the sentiment comes from MFT Baby Bump.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Your card front is beautiful! I love that stamp, the paper you used and the layout. What a great idea to add extra pages for more signatures.
You rock!
Hugs and smiles
