Baby Invitation

Hero Arts and Quickutz Challenge.

20 invitations to make... Lets play with my new Silhouette.


I used the Hero Arts Anyone Can Stamp set - Playful Animals. The bear, I used Prisma color pencils and blue flock for his tummy. The ink, my favorite Ranger Archival Ink in jet-black.


The polka dot background is also by Hero Arts called Raindrop Background. I used Versamark ink with white embossing powder.


The Baby header was a die cut bookend from the Quickutz store (attached to my drawn box). The rattle is from the Quickutz store. The scallop circle can also be a die cut but I used a punch.


The “shower” die cut was the challenge. I've had the Silhouette for less than a week and the font of the die cut matches the invitation text! This took a bit of time and persistence and help of Photoshop… but I did it!


The text card was printed on my Oki LaserJet. (I changed the personal contact info for the web picture…)


The base of the card is a die cut and the blue is a die cut attached via the Xyron machine.


I also did another version with the overalls... see other pix.


Finished card is 8.5x5.5”
