Baby Shower Invites

I want to first start off by saying that I cased these invites from my sweet friend, Kendra. This is NOT my design. You can check out her adorable baby shower invites here. I am making 40 of these pocket card invites for a girlfriend of mine whose other friend is due with a boy in June. I used the stamp set Oh Baby! by Lizzie Anne Designs and the invitation stamp that is in the inside is one that I picked up from Michael's. The cardstock colors are Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue. I ran half of the cardstock for the pocket through my Cuttlebug using the Spots and Dots embossing folder. I punched out the "Baby Shower" stamp with my Marvy Uchida Mega Circle Punch and colored around the letters with a blender pen and Bashful Blue ink. I used my Marvy Uchida Giga Scalloped Circle Punch to punch out the Ballet Blue cardstock and pierced each of the scallops. The second picture shows the inside. I used one of the stamps from the Bundle of Joy set to break up the "It's a Boy!" stamp and the invite info. The invite itself is another one I made. For that one I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, white brads, and blue & white gingham ribbon. My girlfriend liked the first one better. I personally think the blue & white gingham ribbon looks adorable. Anyway, I hope you all have a great evening. I will be back tomorrow with an Easter card to show you.
