Woodlands Baby Shower Invite
I have been busy making plans / crafts for two baby showers - one that I am hosting and one that I am attending. I came up with this simple baby shower invite.
I used the Cricut "Give a hoot" cartridge for the little critters on this. I have plans to use that same cartridge for some of the other crafts that I have planned. The group of animals was created by using the various layers that are available on the cartridge - 5 layers in fact!
I used my sewing machine to roughly the sew the edges and just used a coordinating thread.
For the "Welcoming Alice" and the paint splash I ran the edge of the paper in crafting ink to give it a smudged appearance.
The card size used was the DCVW a2 - multi pack cards. To print on the inside, I opened up my Word Document and changed my paper size to : 5.5" x 8.5" with a margin of .5" on all sides.
