Baby Shower Invites!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I got some wonderful news last month, my brother & his wife are expecting their first baby! I am going to make their baby shower invitations so I've been busy making a few samples for them. They don't know yet if it's going to be a girl or a boy, but they will find out soon! Then I'll know if I need blue paper or pink paper!

The first pink card I made using Stampin' Up punches, following the tutorial on this post, here. I changed it a little bit, she mentioned a 1" punch for the head, that looked too tiny to me, so I used 1 1/2" circle punch for the head. I sponged all the edges of the baby's body to make it stand out a little more. I used an A Muse stamp "Your're Invited" on the bottom of the card. I still had left over paper from making their wedding invitations, so I used that same paper on this card!

I loved making the onesie card, it was so easy and fast!! I used the tutorial to make it found here, and I used a varitey of Stampin' Up punches. The duck image is from A Muse Stamps too.

Have a great weekend!
