I'm back and I can't begin to tell you where the time goes. Life just keeps interrupting my stamping time - but then I know we all go through the same thing. Anyway, all is good and I've been working on baby shower invitations, for a Friend's daughter. The best part is, she is expecting twins - a boy and a girl. The invites and the party favors will be done tomorrow. Grandma and Aunt to be and a good friend are helping me to assemble the 50 invites and the 50 favors. I think it will go pretty smoothly because the invite itself is pretty simple - even though it took me about 6 tries before I was happy with the results. Here it is.
The paper is from Basic Grey - Oh Baby Girl. I just love these elephants. I was very excited when I found this paper at Archiver's because it is last years design. I was working with the elephant stamp and no matter how I colored it, I just couldn't make it coordinate with the paper. Then one night at about 2:30 in the morning, I decided that I should just stamp the elephant on the scraps of the designer paper and then cut him out !! It worked great. Amazing how those sleepy thoughts can work out so well !! LOL !!
We haven't decided yet if we are going to use the "It's a boy, It's a girl" medallion's. I figure that maybe we will come up with a brainstorm tomorrow. I used the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing template (from Electic Paperie) for the fold over cuff. The scalloped circle is done with Nestabilities dies (from Ellen Hutson).
The inside invitation start out with "Double the Diapers, Double the Pins, Double the Onesies, Hurray they're Having Twins ! I copied this for the stamp set in SU Occasions mini, By Ones and By Twos. I just rephrased the last line to make it more original. I think it works.
Well, I hope you like this invitation and mostly, I hope Mom and Dad to be will like it. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
