Baby Shower Invitation

Hiya! Yesterday I mentioned that I made some baby shower invitations that I would share today. Let me just say, I had a hard time coming up with a design and color scheme, etc. I finally settled on this fun paper from We R Memory Keepers and incorporated an owl stamp because the mama-to-be is lovin' her some owls lately. :-) I barely squeezed out enough invites with the amount of paper that I had and the green horizontal strip was replaced with the orange version on a few of them. But here it is ... I think its really fun for a party to welcome a boy. Thankfully, the Scattered Showers & Scattered Showers Additions stamp sets included the words I needed for the front. I printed the invite specifics, cut to 4" square, rounded the corners and glued on the inside, which I think turned out nice.

I mocked up the first one and then cut all the pieces and put them together assembly line style. I think this is the best way to create a bunch of cards that are all the same and/or very similar.

What do you think? Hope she likes them! :-)

Thanks for stopping by again today - I am going to try and be a better blogger this month! :-)
