Baby Shower




The inspiration for the baby shower invitations I made for a friend was the Designer Series Paper Tall Tales and coordinating Stamp Set Animal Stories. It worked perfectly once I found out that the babies room was being done in yellow, green, and brown. The Sweet Treat Cups were used to create a coordinating favor for all of the guest.

I made this card by starting with a 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of Old Olive Cardstock scored at 3". I then took a 2 3/4" x 4" piece of the Tall Tales DSP and put it on the front fold and a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" of DSP (the inner piece in green) and layered it on the inside.
The small card measures 5" x 3" and is scored at 4". The layer on the top is 3 3/4" x 2 15/16" and the inside layer (where I put the information for the shower) measures 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". The card stays closed with the small elephant square setting on top of the outer layer. When adhering this square I used 2 dimensionals to pop it up and put the dimensionals only on the left side of the square so there was room to tuck the left flap of the small card underneath to keep it closed.

Supplies Used for the card:
Cardstock - Old Olive #100702, Whisper White #106529, Chocolate Chip #102128
Designer Series Paper: Tall Tales #115678
Ink: Old Olive #102277, Chocolate Chip #100908
Stamp Sets: Animal Stories #116716, Small Wonder (SAB)
Punches: Wide Oval #112082, Scallop Oval $114889, 1 3/8" Square #103375, Corner Rounder #109047
Embellishments: Vintage Brads #109109
For the favor:
1 3/4" Circle punch (#112004) for the opening of the Treat Cup (#116802), a piece of 3 x 3 Old Olive cardstock on the front, and a piece of 3 x 3 DSP on the back. I always add a little extra sticky strip (#104294) to the inside pieces of my cardstock or DSP when using the treat cup to give it a good hold. Colorful M & M's, a popsicle stick and coordinating ribbon put the finishing touches on the favors.
