I'm currently working on a baby shower. The theme is Winter Wonderland. In this post I'm going to focus on the invitations.
With the help of the soon to be parents, we came up with this design. My Cricut Machine did all of the cutting, but I had to glue all of the pieces. FYI, You might want to use a deep cut blade to cut the glitter paper. The regular blade wouldn't cut through the back of the paper. Also, initially I used glitter glue for the crown, but later decided to add more glitter. The cards were regular cardstock. Which made it easy to print on them with my desktop printer. By the way, I don't have an embossing machine. I rolled them by hand. FYI, a rolling pin will do the trick.
I love these invitations and I hope that I love the decorations even more.
Stay tuned for what we come up with. :-)
