I have been working on a Baby Shower designing invitations, favors, menu, and decorations. I am really enjoying myself. I knew to do all that I had in mind was going to take quite a bit of paper, so I decided to use digital scrapbook paper and print it myself, so I could control my supply. There are so many places on the web to get digital designs now. Just do a search for digital scrapbook paper and you will hit the jackpot!
The first item that needed to be decided on was the invitation. I made three different ones to choose from. Two are the same basic design with one being square and one being A2 size.
This is the square card, but I decided against it since the post office now charges extra to mail square envelopes.
I thought the "Bundle of Joy" was cute, but the rattle and "Here Comes Baby!" won.
Here is what I did:
Paper cut at:
White Base - 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 then folded in half to make it 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
Yellow Layer - 4 X 5 1/4
Tangerine Layer - 3 3/4 X 5
Lime Layer - 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
White Layer - 3 1/2 X 2, then punched with scallop lace Martha Stewart Punch
Yellow - Rattle cut out with Sure Cuts A Lot on a Cricut Expression then decorated with a white bow attached with Zot Dots
