It's A Diaper Shower

Happy Monday my Crafty Friends!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  I participated in 2 blog hops this past weekend, if you haven't already, you should scroll down and take a hop! 


All weekend, I've been working on some invites for my son, Christopher's diaper shower.  I had to make 60 of them so I kept it ultra simple.  I decided since I was making so many, I would make it like a postcard.  Take a look and let me know what you think!


Front 



Back

To create the invite, I first printed all of them and then cut them down to 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  I was able to get 4 from each sheet of blue card stock (Recollections).  I wanted to keep everything simple since this is going out to men.  Next I started on the front, I cut my yellow mat at 5 1/4 X 4 and the green 5 X 3 3/4. Both the yellow and green paper is from Color Bok (Wal-Mart).   I ran the green mat through the cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots embossing folder.  I added a piece of ribbon that says It's A Boy (Hobby Lobby). My image was cut using the Baby Steps cartridge at 3 inches.  I decided to cut the base in flesh color and skip one step because I wanted to add a PK face.  I than cut all the layers as usual.  

I'll be slipping these into an A2 envelope to send out!
