Baby Shower Invitation ~ Sweet "Little" Hippo




Here's my take on an "Invitation Challenge" I was asked to participate in! I chose to design a baby shower invite, since I'm due anytime now!!!!!! :-) (I think I'm down to single digits ~ 10 days or less!) I would have made these for my own baby shower, but that's just weird, so... I had a BALL making this one for the challenge.

I chose this color scheme so the invite could be used for a boy or girl. You can simply adjust the color scheme as you wish!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Thursday!

Thanks Monica! I really like this card too. :-)
The paper colors I chose are as follows:
Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Barely Banana & Whisper White
The ink is classic Black & Apricot Appeal (blender pens).
I also used the Almost Amethyst pastel for the Hippo!
Apricot Appeal ribbon and matching pastel brad.
I used white embossing powder for the white dots on the belly band.
As for the measurements, the card is 5 1/4" X 8 1/2" ~ score it @ 2 1/4" on each end and then cut from the center which is 2 10/16". The two insert layers are 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" and 3 1/2" x 4 1/2". The belly bands measures 8 1/2" x 1", and you'll score it at 1/2" and again at 4". The top two layers under the stamp image is 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" and 2" x 3".
Whew... I think that's everything and I hope that it all makes sense! The card is really easy to make once you make one. Just give it a try! :-)
Thanks for looking and please stop back by and visit soon.
