I can count on two hands the number of friends and acquaintances who have had twins over the past few years, so I figured it was due time to make a twins baby card.
Big, bold, and colorful, it's the perfect card for the parents expecting two babies! Find it in the shop here.

When I first began my company, some of my favorite cards to design were new baby cards. As Happy Cactus has grown, I've also become more attune to market needs. While new baby cards are wonderful to give once a baby has arrived, they aren't quite appropriate for a baby shower celebrating the mother-to-be. With that in mind, I've been so pleased with the reception to my new mom/pregnancy card. They are great to slip in with a shower gift or send to a long-distance friend who has just shared the big news. You can find all of these cards in the online shop!

1. What's a better gift for a new baby boy than a personalized towel from Pottery Barn?
2. I love this little wooden boat. Would be great for nursery decoration!
3. The perfect welcome baby card for an August baby.
4. I think this large tote from Sea Bags would be great as a diaper bag for now and as a beach bag when baby grows up.

Our best-selling "Welcome Baby" elephants card, shown here in pink, pairs perfectly with Sharon Montrose's baby elephant photograph from The Animal Print Shop. We think this would make a fab baby present combo! Sharon's photographs of animals are amazing!

I recently had the pleasure to work on a custom stationery project for a sweet new baby girl and her mother.
Last summer, I worked with the mom-to-be on folded thank you note cards she could use for baby gifts. She was planning on naming her daughter Violet, so I created a pattern of small hand-drawn violets for the cards.
Following Violet's birth, I was thrilled to be asked to create flat note cards featuring Violet's name. I used the same violet flower pattern motif to line the bottom of the card and used a feminine and fun script for her name.
I love collaborating on projects like this one and was honored to get to work with the new mother twice. You can see more custom Happy Cactus Designs projects here.

Our custom personalized cards have really taken off since they were first launched this summer. I've been spending a lot of time brainstorming and drawing new designs and am excited to share two new flat note cards!
First up, a flat card with small hand-drawn zoo animals - an elephant, a lion, a giraffe, and a zebra - lining the bottom. This is my new personal favorite!
Next up, another flat card featuring tiny little ducks. The "Welcome Little One" baby card with ducklings and their mother is our most popular baby card, so I decided to feature a similar design as a personalized option. The background is a pale yellow.
Both cards would be perfect for a new baby or child's gift and work for either a boy or a girl! You can see more custom designs in our online portfolio here. Get in touch if you'd like to learn more about our options for personalized stationery.

This week's card of the week is a design that has been flying off of the shelves lately - "Welcome Little One" with baby ducks. We nearly sold out of this one at the Dallas Flea a few weeks ago.
This perfect card for a new little baby is gender neutral and features hand drawn little ducks set against a very pale yellow background.
You can pick it up in the shop here! Remember - free shipping on all orders through October 15 (no code necessary)!

This week's card of the week is one of Happy Cactus' bestsellers and a personal favorite of mine - "Welcome Baby Elephants" in blue and pink.
A simple little elephant drawing turned into such a cheerful and fun baby card. Elephants with their trunks pointing up are good luck, too! You can check out both version in the store here.
I've used this same pattern for personalized flat note cards which make for a perfect baby gift. Recently, I've been working on some other animal designs that I hope to share with you soon!
