Baby Shower

This is the baby shower invitation that I made for my sister's baby shower...I had two of her friends come over and make about 16 of them in an assembly was easy once I had everything cut out...
~ Bashful Blue cardstock by SU
~ designer paper for the trim by SU
~ Bashful blue ink for the background stamp
~ certainly celery ink by SU
~ scallop circle punch for the onsie trim
~ scallop oval for the sentiment
So much fun and perfect for the shower


After the wedding card was such a hit my mom asked for another card...this one is being sent overseas so I took into account the weight and no raised is hard to see in the photo but I did color lightly the petals of the sunflower in yellow.
~ card base is basic black card stock from SU
~ next layer is Daffidol yellow from SU
~ then good ole whisper white also from SU
~ not sure what company the sunflower is from but hopefully Lisa will add that to the post (it is a silicone stamp which is pretty cool and comes out so nice) La Blanche is the company.
~ I used Stazon On in black for the sunflower and the sentiment
A pretty basic card but lots of punch...
