That is right, Umbilical CARD.

I like to send out Thank You Cards to the care providers who help at births I attend.  Especially for the nurses who spend so much time helping protect our space.

I used to send out plain old notecards.

Then I found Umbilical Cards.  They are SO cute and I think really make a statement.  I have used them for my last few Thank You cards.  I have also used them for baby showers.

I will say that for mailing you may want to go with the Gestationary.  With the Umilical Card I worry you have to pay more postage because they are thicker?  I put an extra stamp on just in case.  So I am using them for baby showers where I hand deliver the card.

But everyone who has gotten one loves them.

I think it is a great idea for

  • birth workers
  • baby shower gifts
  • thank you notes

  1. Those are really cute! I just looked up the postal guidelines because I’m mailing handmade invitations for my daughter’s 3rd birthday party, and they are cardstock with a lot of layers. The maximum thickness for a letter is 1/4 of an inch, so if the card measure less than 1/4 inch think when its in an envelope, you can mail it with 1 stamp.

  2. Good to know, then maybe it would be OK with the other one. I will need to measure it!
