Baby (Boy) Shower Cards/favor

So for the past couple of weeks I've been working on some baby shower invitations for my aunt in law...Her colors were baby blue, green and brown. I had to figure out how to incorporate all the colors with out going over board on one more than the other....I made a 5.5 X 7.25 card and I think it turned out super cute! the favor is a candle....


  • Ek success punch for brown border

  • green scallop using gypsy wanderings(3x3)

  • brown bear using sizzix stuffed animals on my cuddle bug

  • baby blue ribbon

  • "Its a baby shower" using wild card cartridge (phrases)

  • pop dots to raise scallop so invite flap can tuck under
  • baby blue circle using George basic shapes and ran through the cuddle bug using Swiss dots

So I got into crafting more after I had my daughter 3 yrs. ago and I went from working full time to 2days a week so that I can watch her...Now she sits next to me and stamps and crafts and pretends she s doing scrapbooking videos "hi scrappers today i'll be making this card..."to cute! I started making her party's some from her 1st bday (dora princess) and 2nd(mickey mouse clubhouse). Besides goodie bags for the kids I make a Christmas ornament or magnets for the adults as a thank you for coming(she was born in dec)....hope you guys like it!
