Sweet Little Baby Invite





Hey there, Bleeps! I'm back today with another sample using Cut Cardstock.com invitation templates. This template is a perfect way to make simple petal invites. I made one using a baby shower theme. Instead of the typical, "Join Us for a Baby Shower" sentiment, I combined a few of my Papertrey Ink stamps to come up with this one! I stamped the sentiment on a shipping tag to signify a new baby! The giraffe makes the invitation a bit more fun along with the brown gingham ribbon. I think the mommy-to-be for this shower definitely knows she's having a boy!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to find out if you were yesterday's blog candy winner on today's blog candy posting (below). Also, don't forget to enter today's blog candy contest!

Have a great Hump Day!

Instructions
  1. Draw faux stitching with marker.
  2. On shipping tag, stamp sentiment.
  3. Stamp giraffe on kraft cardstock, color, and cut out.
  4. Tie ribbon around invitation.
  5. Add shipping tag.
  6. Add giraffe (adhere rhinestones to giraffe's eyes).

Holy Blog Candy, Ashley - You had me at the embossing tools - and then you just kept going and going and going - we'll have to nickname you the Energizer Blogger! And what fun to use the Marvy Uchida tool with the Coredinations paper and then sanding. And then all the rest of those fabulous items - I'm over the top excited, and hope that I'm over the top lucky to be picked as today's winner. Thanks for the chance!!! P.S. - love your card fold baby card - very cute!
