Baby Shower Invitation

‪#‎imadeit‬ ‪#‎cricut
This is my first attempt at two things . . . making cards, and using my Cricut Explore. Why I chose this time to volunteer to create baby shower invitations I'm not quite sure, but I think they came out OK. I ended up needing to make more than I originally purchased supplies for, so I had to buy a variety of colored card stock.

The diaper template was purchased from The Cutting Cafe. I printed the liner on my laser printer, cut it out, and use a Fiskar's border punch to edge the legs. I created a little label, added some bling, and "pinned" them on the front. Lucky for me, they fit perfectly into standard invitation envelopes, and I had a box of those on hand. I used a little stamp to stamp baby footprints (in blue, of course) on the flap and Voila! Cute, huh?
