Default looking for a "penny" baby card

I remember seeing a baby card once that you put a penny in the card that was made in the year baby is born and then there was a poem about it that ended something like "And on your wedding day, along with 'something old & new', This bride is to have, This lucky penny in her shoe". Has anyone seen this and does anyone know where I can find a sample of it?

I did a search on Google----Is this it?

Babyís First Penny
Babyís First Penny
Hereís babyís first penny,
So shiny, bright and new,
Just staring out in life
Like newborn babies do.
Itís meant to bring good fortune
During the years that lie ahead.
To be treasured as a keepsake
Until your child is wed.
Then on that day most special,
With "something old and new,"
The bride is meant to carry
A lucky penny in her shoe.
Whether she should be your daughter
Or your sonís intended wife,
The promise of good fortune
Will charm their married life.

I have that stamp. I cant remember where it's from though. I got it years ago at my local stamp store in CA.

I'll have to go check it out and let you all know.

This is one I have written down ~

This shiny new penny dated
The year you were born
Is meant to be a keepsake
To treasure through the years

And on your wedding day
Along with "something old and new"
This bride is to have
This lucky penny in her shoe.

This is so cool. What an awesome idea. Thank you so much for sharing.

I can see so many ways of putting the penny on the card. Small vellum envelope, or have it sewn inside white organdy. Have "inside" a baby carriage.

Off to find some pregnant people to make a card for.

Dorinda thanks so much for sharing your example. I have a mommy/baby shower to go to on Saturday. This is the perfect idea!

The poem in post # 3 works for a baby boy or a baby girl. Here's a link to the post:


looking for a "penny" baby card



HTH ... and I plan to make one with all the poems being posted as I still need to send a card for my cousin's baby girl and a nephew is expecting a girl later this year. Also a customer (that works with my DH) is pregnant so I can feature this at the next event she attends!

Default Penny Poem

Hereís babyís first penny,
So shiny, bright and new,
Just staring out in life
Like newborn babies do.
Itís meant to bring good fortune
During the years that lie ahead.
To be treasured as a keepsake
Until your child is wed.
Then on that day most special,
With "something old and new,"
The bride is meant to carry
A lucky penny in her shoe.
Whether she should be your daughter
Or your sonís intended wife,
The promise of good fortune
Will charm their married life.

I found this when I went to Ask. com. It is titled A Keepsake Treasure for Baby.

Thanks everyone for telling me what the poem is. Now has anyone seen a sample of this kind of card on the internet? I can't seem to find one showing just how they "mounted" the penny and the poem. Thanks again.

I recently traveled to Slovenia, where the Slovenian penny has a stork carrying a baby on it! I saved one to give my new neighbor's baby. Thanks for the neat poems, I'll definately use that!

I just had a baby shower favor published in the Aug/September 2007 issue of the Scrap & Stamp Arts mag, along with many other artists, but I don't recall seeing any with pennies in them. Great idea! By the way, I have a thread with lots of other poems listed too. See my siggie below for the link.
