'New Baby' Cards from Greeting Card Universe Artists

At this time of year, it's not just new baby birds and animals that keep appearing - there are plenty of human 'new arrivals' to celebrate too!

So here's a selection of beautiful 'New Baby' greeting cards from Greeting Card Universe artists who use traditional, non-digital methods to create their designs:

Gerda Steiner

Of course you'll have realised that computers were used for some of the lettering. But apart from that, I think you'll agree that there's 'a certain something' about handpainted and hand-drawn designs that makes them special!  

I'm sure all the artists will appreciate your comments!

Hi Judy,
Agree with you; handpainted cards have a soft, gentle, dreamy quality about them, that digital images don't always have.
Thanks for including my cards!
Hugs, barbara

Thank you for your comments, Janet. I think it's a good reminder that we don't necessarily need a digital design program to produce some lovely desigs.
