Baby Needs Her Own Big Shot!

This past weekend I attended a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Retreat (thanks Kim!). Wow, a whole weekend to create and craft projects that I’ve been keeping in the back of my mind for weeks!  Just think… you’ll be invited next year if you’ve signed up to be a demonstrator in my LovenStampfuls Group! (only 13 days left to get that Greenhouse Gala Tote!)

One of my tasks for the weekend was to make some baby shower invitations.  I’ve seen several incarnations of this idea floating around, and decided to adapt it for the supplies I had on hand.

Here are the instructions:

  1. Fold a 4-1/4 x 8-1/2″ piece of Blushing Bride card stock in half.  Place it on the Scallop Circle die so that the folded edge is INSIDE the circle and won’t be cut by the die blade.  Cut with Big Shot.
  2. Trim out a triangle from the folded card as shown.  Add polka dot texture with the Textured Impressions Polka Dot Folder — only add to the front of the card by opening the card and placing just the front half in the folder.
  3. Cut the Whisper White trim piece with the Tasteful Trim Big Shot Die (Holiday Mini Catalog).  Trim to 4-1/4″ wide and attach.  Stamp with hearts from the Tiny Tags stamp set and add one punched Small Heart.
  4. Stamp two hearts from Tiny Tags and punch them out with the 1″ Circle Punch.  Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals to create the wheels.

These are a really simple invitation and making 20 didn’t take all that long.  You could continue to embellish if you have more time, but I had that big stack of projects in the back of my mind… I look forward to sharing more with you in the next week or two!!
