Baby Shower Invitation

I covered the information, but you can still see how stylish the Oh Baby! Single Stamp makes the Baby Shower Invitation.  The Single Stamps can not be found in any of the Stampin' Up! Catalogs, but they can be seen at my online store.  There are some really cute images, and it is nice to be able to buy only one stamp if that is all you need.  All Single Stamps come in Clear Mount.
My card base is Old Olive Card Stock that measures 8 3/4 x 3 3/4.   I printed the invitation wording using my computer, and then cut it down to measure 8 1/2 x 3 1/2.  You can get two invitations printed using one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock and still have card stock left over for future use.
I then stamped my mother-to-be using Old Olive Ink, and then ran that part through my Big Shot using the Chevron Embossing Folder.  I added some Baja Breeze 1/2" Seam Binding (retiring soon) and attached this layer to my Old Olive Card Stock. 
I like to make this size invitation if you don't have a lot of additional information needed.  They fit nicely into  #9 envelope (they measure 3 7/8" x 8 7/8") and require no extra postage. 
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Old Olive #100702, Very Vanilla #101650

Stamp:  Oh Baby! #132667 c
