Baby Shower

Babies, babies, babies! I'm throwing a baby shower for my dear friend next month and I'm excited to share all my plans with you. From invitations and decorations to party favors, I'm going to shower you with fun and fresh ideas to make your next shower or party extra special.

Today: invitations. My friend supplied me with fabric samples for the nursery she is planning for her daughter. It's always a great idea to try and coordinate the theme of a shower (bridal or baby) with your guest of honor in mind. It's an extra special touch they will surely appreciate.

The supplies for this card are a mixture of Papertrey Ink (PTI) and Stampin' Up! My Hibiscus cardstock from PTI was zipped through my Big Shot using a paisley cuttlebug embossing folder. I also ran my Top Note Bigz Die thru. the machine which creates the 'frame' for the focal point of the invitation. Using Papertrey's Scattered Showers stamp set I stamped two umbrella images and layered them using Stampin' Dimensionals.

My card layer measurements:
Spring Moss card base - 4.5" x 5.75"
Chocolate Chip - 4.25" x 5.5"
Hibiscus - 4" x 5.25"

For extra sass, Chocolate Chip double-stitched ribbon and polka dotted satin are 'stacked' for interest and texture. A K&Company floral brad adds just the right amount of girlie delight.

Check back each Saturday during the month of May for 'Shower Saturdays'. I'll have new project ideas perfect for parties.
