Baby Shower Gift

My niece is expecting in a couple months, so as one of her shower gifts, I made a set of 20 thank you cards.  This is the invitation her sister sent:

And I must apologize for these photos---for some reason, Sage Shadow and my camera just do not get along.  The colors in the invite are actually Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Pumpkin Pie and Green Galore, although it looks more like Kiwi Kiss in my photo!  Anyhoo, I took the colors along with the sailboat from Nursery Necessities to make these:

I stamped the boat in each of the three colors, cut the pieces apart, then reassembled them so that each boat was made of three colors.  I then mounted them on a 1 3/4” circle and a scalloped Nestie.  The sentiment is from Trendy Trees.  Then, I made a box with a transparent lid:

And tied it up with a beautiful satin bow and a little matching tag:

She always comments on my cards, so I am hoping she will like these as well!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Tomorrow I’ll show you the card I made for the gift itself.  Totally different!
