I used the It’s a Woman and It’s a Boy collections from Echo Park Paper for each of those cute playing cards. I really like how these two collections have related merchandise and components included for every gender, making it simple to us the identical design for each playing cards!

For the cardboard fronts, I minimize a barely smaller cloud, minimize from white cardstock after which used my stitching machine to sew across the edges with white thread.

I additionally added chipboard items, white crochet thread and even just a few enamel dots for some further curiosity!

Don’t neglect so as to add a cute sticker sentiment to the within of the cardboard! Including these colourful phrases to the within is enjoyable and nonetheless permits loads of room so as to add a private message if desired.
