Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying their long holiday weekend, this is Kimberli from Kimberli's Creations with a fun post for you today!
My best friend asked me to make the invitations for her sister's baby shower this summer, we talked about a lot of different ideas and this is what I came up with! She won't know next week what sex the baby is, my guess is girl-not sure why, but that's what my gut says ;-), so I opted to make a girl invitation as a mock one until we know for sure!
First, I welded together a couple of onesies from B is for Boy lite Cricut cart, using my Gypsy, then cut another one separate to use as the front...
Here they are cut...I apologize in advance for the poor lighting in my pictures, its currently 11:30p here, so no natural light to work with but the middle of the night is my only time to scrap these days!
The card base...
The front that will be adhered to the base...I used a stack from K&Company, Itsy Bitsy Baby Girl, for the patterned paper and some pink cardstock from my stash for the card base.
Then I used pale yellow/white twine from The Twinery, tied a bow and attached the patterned paper to the card base.
I wasn't sure where to stamp the sentiment, so I decided to use the oval that was cut from the middle of welding the card base together, stamp the sentiment on it and attach it to the front - talk about using everything and having little waste! :-)
The duck I cut also using B is for Boy cricut cart and I inked everything using my chalk inks from Quick Quotes.
The sentiment stamps I used, inside and out, are from My Pink Stamper 'Sweet Baby' set.
I'm still not sure I like the inside, I need to talk to my friend and see what she thinks - but I may add a piece of patterned paper in there somehow and stamp on that, instead of directly on the card base, but here's what I did for now...
Here's the outside all put together, I love how it came together - I hope my friend likes it as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by!! Happy Memorial Day!
