I know people have babies all year round, but for some reason there is a huge surge in interest for baby cards in the Spring! So, I have a few to share, and a pattern so that you can make your own baby cards.

Of course, these make awesome baby announcements and baby congrats cards, but you could also make up a bunch to give to a new mom as 'thank you' cards for baby gifts, or they would be great for baby shower invitations. Use the gown version of the pattern for a christening...it could even be tweaked to make a little paper angel! Since you can print out the pattern, you could reduce the size of the onesie and cut some of them out for scrapbooking pages, or to put multiple onesies on the front of a card for twins, triplets, etc. The gown even makes a cute little dress that could be used as an invitation to a little girl's victorian tea party.
I have posted three different samples made with this pattern, so you can see that you can make a very simple and quick card (handy for making sets as gifts), or you can take your time and doll it up for a unique and memorable event.
