Baby Shower Invitations and Thank You


These are the baby shower invitations and thank you cards I made for a friends daughter-in-law who is expecting their first child.  It will be nice for the mother to be to have a supply of coordinating thank you cards on hand to send out after her shower. 

Both the invitations and cards were made using Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Whisper White cardstock.  The sailboat is from a retired stamp, and the wording for the invitation was printed using my computer.  I added Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon (retiring today) to the invitation, and also embossed the top of the invitation with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, (after I stamped my image).  The thank you card was made by folding my Night of Navy cardstock in half, and cutting the scallop circle using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die.  When cutting the cardstock, in order to make the bib and not cut two separate circles, I left the top four scallops exposed and placed my fold line just below those four scallops.  I then cut a small opening with my 1" circle punch.  The additional circles were cut with my Circle Scissors Plus (also retiring today).  Some silver brads were added at the top to secure my Night of Navy ribbon (retiring).

Remember, today is the last day to get your retiring items, if they haven't already sold out.  So, don't wait any longer if there are some items you really don't want to be without.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Night of Navy #100867, Old Olive #100702, Whisper White #100730
Ink:  Night of Navy #102977
Ribbon:  Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain #109036 and Old Olive 5/8" Satin #117292 (both retiring today)
