A Baby Shower!!!

Hello.... I'm Back!!!! as as promised I have a picture of the 'FINISHED' Baby Shower invite I was talking about in this post, earlier today.

Hope you like them.... but most importantly i REALLY hope that Kate Jemma LOVES them!!!

The Base of the invite is Certainly Celery, with a layer of Kraft Cardstock. I recently had a Birthday Book Class and had a HUGE amount of Kraft pieces left over, so I really wanted to use them, and I think they were PERFECT for these invites. I used my White Gel pen to create some faux stitching around the edge.

Now for the little animals (all from Wild About You!), I stamped the lion in So Safron, then restamped his head in Pumpkin Pie and cut out the mane, then restamped his head again in So Saffron and cut out the head part and then used my Choc Chip marker to colour in his face features. All the layers are popped up on dimensionals. The Elephant is stamped in Soft Sky and I also restamped his ear and attached that with a dimensional and the Giraffe is stamped in So Saffron and again I used my Choc Chip Marker to colour in his face and tail.

Although there was an AWFUL amount of cutting out involved in these little darlings... I REALLY did enjoy creating them.

Thanks for stopping by.
