Advice Cards for a New Mom's Shower

I got contacted through my Facebook page to make some custom cards for someone's sister who was naming her baby Willow. She wanted a distressed natural look and also wanted two different sets of cards. I was happy that I actually had a stamp that looked some-what like a willow tree and the customer loved it! On more traditional like the first card for out of town guests who couldn't make the shower and another more like a post card for those able to attend. Her sister is a new mother to be and wanted the guests to write down advice or words of wisdom for her on motherhood. So I pieced Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABCs together to stamp out the custom sentiment the customer wanted. I had never taken such a large order before, but I was surprised how easy it was to make 45 of these. I did it like I do my Christmas cards an assembly line. I packaged up the postcard like cards with some Lawn Trimmings twine, a teeny clothes pin, and a custom tag I made with the same stamp embossed in gold and I hand wrote baby Willow's name in white gel pen.
