Baby Shower Invitations

Here's one of the invitations I made for a friend's baby shower. The shower information was printed on a separate piece of paper and placed inside the card, that way those who were invited got a free blank card, and a cute one at that!

For those of you not invited to the shower, here are some brief instructions on creating the card so you too can have one:

Tools and Supplies for this project:
- 1/2 sheet of white cardstock
- 5.5 by 1 inch rectangle of pink floral paper
- 1.5 by 2 inch rectangle of pink plaid paper
- 4 white flowers cut using an EK success daisy punch (I get a lot of mileage out of this punch!)
- 1 green flower cut into pieces to form the leaves using the EK success daisy punch (See, I told you!)
- 2 yellow circles cut using a hole punch for the flower centers
- 2 small strips of green paper to form the stems
- Picket fence edging scissors from Provocraft (Any edging scissor will do.)
- EK success small rounded corner punch

As far as instructions go, there are only a few things that might be hard to figure out from the picture. I began by folding the cardstock in half. I then drew a line along the right side of the card front about 3/4 of an inch away from the edge. I then cut along the left side of the line using the edging scissors (that way the pencil line gets cut away). The floral paper was then pasted inside the card on the right side so that it peeps out when the card is closed. On the outside, I pasted one white flower on top of another to get a fuller and more dimensional flower. The yellow hole punch was then pasted in the center of the flower just for an added umph. Oh, and the rounded corner punch was used to round the edges of the pink plaid rectangle. There you go!
