Baby Carriage or Baby Pram Card for the Birth of a Baby

Perhaps you know someone who has given birth to a baby and you would like to create a handmade card for the special occasion. You may choose to adapt the colors depending on the gender of the baby. This card is in apricot for a girl. If you are giving a card for a boy, a light blue or green may be more appropriate.
