Baby Shower Invites

I've been up to my eyeballs in baby blue animals for the past week or so.  And I definitely should have stuck with the KISS method on these, but once I get an idea stuck in my head it's hard to let go, especially if you stock up on all the things that you think you're going to need for that idea to come to fruition.  In this case, stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant, saved Bashful Blue paper from Stampin' Up as well as the blue ink and watercolor pencil for stamping and coloring.  I've forgotten the source of the sea mist (gray) paper, but was very glad to find it in my stash.  


I stamped, die cut, and colored all the animals first.



And used them on this wiper card.



Did I mention there are two showers?  Yes, one small one here in our home in NJ and another bigger one in Delaware where they live.  Something new to me - a Coed Shower, with a display table for the gifts as opposed to wrapping, and a Diaper Raffle. 



The Diaper Raffle ticket is on the back of the card insert on this one.  Guests have a choice whether to participate or not by bringing a package of diapers of any size with their ticket and there will be a prize for the name that's pulled on the shower day. 

I have a handful of each of the animals leftover and if I don't need some last-minute invites for additional guests, I'm toying with the idea of using them on Thank You notes - very KISS thank you notes!

  2. Oh my - that was a lot of work for sure, but they are just so beautiful! I think I'd find the colouring therapeutic, lining up the dies and the stamps not so much. And a fun fold too!
