Baby Shower Invitation

My little sister Ginger is having a Baby Boy in Sept.. So we are having a baby shower for her..
My mom asked me to make the shower invitations for her.. So here they are..
Sweet and simple.. We are soooo excited for her.. this will be her second boy the oldest is 13.. So don't you think it's time for new baby goodies...

I Don't have any baby stamps from Stampin' Up... I know how weird is that.. But I do have this Yummy set from "Papertry inc." I did a little paper piecing with this cute onsie. What is Paper piecing... Really simple.. I stamped on patten paper and cut the image out.. Is that easy peasie or what... I used 2 different designer series paper patterns from Stampin' Up paper pack. I ran the card base through the Big Shots machine using the "Stampin' Up Backgrounds #1 Texturz Plates". (don't forget to spritz the paper with a light mist of water before you run it through what a difference it will make) Then I distressed the card with Whisper White Craft ink from SU. I cut of the bottom edge of the card front and replaced it with a white scallop edge I cut using the S.U. Scallop edge punch I glued it on with a small line of Mono liquid glue.. Using the scraps of paper I had left from the Onsie I sewed the strips of paper onto the card. To add a sentiment to the card I stamped the message on a Strip of Kraft paper then raised it on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finished up with a little Whisper White Ribbon from SU and a small button from my button collection...


This is a great card for mass producing... You just get it all cut out and sit down snuggle someone special and watch a good movie...

Thanks for stopping buy..
Hugs
Brooke
