Ok all you card ladies, I need some advice. I make diaper cakes as gifts or for baby shower center pieces. Anyhow I would like to include a handmade card to go with them. I've looked in the gallery for ideas and found alot of cute ones. I am really interested in the ones that I think are stamped and colored? Do you buy the stamps and then color them or are they digitally colored ones? I don't have any stamps or markers to color yet. How hard/time consuming is it to color? I think I would rather do digital images for ease, what are good markers to use (other than the expensive Copics)? Any ideas on good digi websites? Sorry for all the questions, I am probably opening a whole new can of worms with making cards!!! But when people purchase the cakes from me I think it would be really nice to have a card to go with it.
As Melissa indicated, you can get precolored clip art or digi images. If you don't want to get into the expense and time of coloring, I'd do that. It takes me a while to color an image, because I blend my colors with copics. Coloring is therapy for me, though.
Also, Graphic 45 has a new line of Baby paper that is adorable. I think they have some die cuts that you could use instead of printed images, too.
You can make adorable cards without any images at all, too. There's a card shaped like a onesie that would look really cute to go with your diaper cake. I'll see if I can find one for you to show you.
If you would like Freebies please visit my blog and I have a list of links for all kinds of freebies. For example one is Creative Elegance Designs and on the side of her blog she has links to FREE Baby kits. I haven't posted on my blog for a while and keep meaning to get back to it but the links are still there. Some Great sites for Freebies. Just type in Creative Elegance Designs in Google Search and her blog will come up. Good Luck and God Bless
Thanks everyone for the replies and the links. The diaper cards and onsie cards are adorable. So many cute possibilites...so little time. LOL. Well I will be giving it my best shot today and see what I come up with. I will post it in the gallery if it's not too bad.
