Thank You Note and Keepsake



I am going to be Grandma for first time! I can’t beleive it and I am soooo happy and I am making a lot of things for the Baby Shower of my daughter-in-law. It’s going to be a GIRL, so I already started making the Invitations, the Thank You notes, and the favors. This is what my post is about.

The Thank You note that you see was made with vellum paper, cardstock, ribbon, a paper flower, and vinyl. Using my TERRIFIC Groove E and the engraving tool, I engraved the vellum, (F=60 and V=300). Then I changed the engraving tool for the red cap blade to cut the vellum. After it was cut, I cut one of the borders with a decorative scissor. Then I cut cardstock with the same shape of the vellum and painted just the border of the card stock. The word “Thank you” was made with vinyl and I cut it with the red cap blade (F=25 and V=150). Then I embellished with ribbon and paper flower.








For the keepsake, I made everything exactly as explained above but in miniature size. Instead of writing the word “Thank You” I wrote the name of the baby, which is going to be “Carlea” and put that inside a box frame that I decorated with the colors of the baby shower.

  7. It’s beautiful! AND, you’re so lucky to have a newborn coming into the family! My youngest grand child is 10 yrs old now. Her brother turns 13 tomorrow! I was in the delivery room when he was born..when his head popped out, I told him he was MINE! Well of course, he ended up being poppa’s boy instead..grrr. But he’s THIRTEEN now..impossible…and we may never have any more newborns. We also have a 16 yr old (yup she’s driving now). No more newborns though ;/

  8. How adorable! Something to add to my list of ideas. Thanks for sharing. Great idea.

  9. Your Project is so beautiful, I can see it as a much treasured heirloom item passed down with love, debi
