Summer Is Almost Here!

Not really, but today the sun is out in Dallas!  After the last week of snow, ice and frigid temperatures, it feels like summer! Close enough for me!!  The one good thing about all the horrid weather we’ve had is that I’ve gotten to stay inside and create some new samples to share.

My daughter in law’s sister is having a baby soon and that means a baby shower and invitations. My friend had sent me an idea from a website she had been surfing, so I changed it up and came up with this.

The focal point uses the Welcome Baby image in Punch Bunch, which is one of the stamp sets you may choose for free with a $50 (subtotal) order from now until March 31 as part of Sale-A-Bration.

Directions:  Cut two 5 1/4″ x 2″ pieces of Pink Pirouette card stock.  Cut each of these strips into two pieces that are 2″x 3″ and 2″x 2 1/4″. 

Then cut two 5″x 1 3/4′ strips of Chocolate Chip card stock.  Using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder, run these strips through the Big Shot Die Cut Machine and then cut each of these strips to 1 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ and 1 3/4″ x 2″.

Layer the Chocolate Chip pieces onto the Pink Pirouette pieces and then onto a piece of 11″ x 4 1/4″ Whisper White card stock that has been scored and folded in half.

Use Stampin’ Write Markers in Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and So Saffron to color the image and then stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Punch out using the small Tag Punch and then, using the large Tag Punch, punch out another tag. Using Dimensionals, attach to card front. Stamp the “You’re Invited” greeting from the Introducing Stamp Set onto another scrap of Whisper White card stock and then layer onto a small piece of Pink Pirouette card stock. Attach to the bottom of the card front so that a small edge of Chocolate Chip from embossed layer shows.
