A while ago I saw THESE fabric postcards on Pinterest. I thought they would be a lot of fun to make and send! I finally got around to giving them a go.
This is the first one I made. (Remember how I said I just loved the rainbow fabric? Can you tell that I still have a little infatuation with it?!) I absolutely L-O-V-E it! I don't know about you, but if I checked the mail and saw this in the box, I would be instantly happy! =)
The next one I made for a friend who is expecting. (And no, not a friend from the 2 baby showers I hosted in June. This is a totally different Momma, and there are 2 others I know as well. I guess this is the year of babies!)
The Daddy is a dj, hence the musical fabric. I have seen a picture of a nursery floating around on Pinterest, something I did not pin, and on the wall it simply stated OH BOY above the crib. Clever. So, I went ahead and used it for my card. I like it. Boys are really exciting! Full of adventure and curiosity.
I had too much fun making these. Seriously. Too. Much. Fun!
I pretty much followed the above mentioned tutorial in making these. I did do a few different things. Like, embroidering words to the front and some applique. I also used felt and didn't exactly 'quilt' it like she did.
These are more than a postcard. They are little pieces of art! Something to keep and display.
Oh, and I may have gone a bit overboard because yes, I did buy this stamp so I can hand stamp the back of each. Don't judge me! ;)
Have a blessed day friends!
