Baby Shower Invitations

I designed these two versions for my daughter's baby shower.
The second one is a spin-off of the flower pot card, inspired by DaShawnna's bee card, and it is actually the one I like best.
BUT, I have to make so many, so I came up with the first version, which is quicker to make, and is the one I have decided to use. I am going to type the invitation on vellum paper and adhere it to the inside of the card.
I used New Arrival cartridge. On the first card I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the cap of the bottle. The "You're Invited" is a stamp from Stampin' Up; the bling and ribbon is from my stash.

  1. I love the cards that have pull-out inserts...I am trying to use the "flower pot" idea too. BUT I think I like the first one you made better. It's cuter with the bling around the "nipple ring" and it will be adorable with the vellum invitation inside.

  2. These are absolutely adorable Patsy!! The paper you chose is beautiful as well! I completely understand about going with the more time efficient option, especially when you have a high volume of invitations to do. I have about 40 invites to make and decided to have an 'assembly party' so I could get a little help--and have an excuse to get together with my friends and craft! LOL Love your work girl!
