it's a girl!

i haven't been posting to much lately -- i've been busy!  my dearest, and best friend is having a baby!  it's a girl!  so excited for her and her husband, and the new big brother.

so -- that means --- a shower!  woohoo! ;)

today i'll be posting the invitations -- be watching for more posts soon - favors, and the card i made.

anyway -- let's get started!

these are soooo cute!

 each one is a little different.  the base of each card is either a cute pastel - pink, yellow, lilac, or green.  each tag is also one of those 4 colors, and each is tied with a yellow or pink ribbon.

i used the stampin' up stocking die to cut out the bootie (cardstock was folded in half, and cut out with the fold at the top, so that the card opens). the booties where then run through the cuttlebug (front only) in the swiss dot embossing folder.  i then punched slots in the cuff - using a SU punch, (sorry, i don't remember the name if it, but it looks something like this:  |  |  ), and then ran the ribbon though and up to tie a bow.  i placed the cuff even with the top of the stocking to make it look more like a little bootie or sock instead of a stocking. 

the tag was cut out on the cricut - a walk in my garden cartridge.  i used the bread tag function.  we had a butterfly themed shower, so this added the butterfly touch nicely!  i didn't have a stamp that i liked, or fit that said baby shower, so i printed these out on the computer.  i then sponged the edges with a little blushing bride pink SU ink so it pops a bit.

i was so happy with how these turned out!  too cute!  i made 55 for the shower -- along with the rsvp's i got many great compliments! :)

i hope you enjoyed today's project ---

don't forget to stop back in a day or two -- i'll be posting the favors i made - cute butterflies!  you won't want to miss them!

thanks for stopping by!  happy stamping . . .
