I made these last month for the baby shower of a close friend. It’s her first boy, so we had to celebrate! She doesn’t have a nursery, but she was making a blanket in brown and blue, so I figured it was a great chance to work with an argyle pattern I’d been hoping to use!
I started by cutting out two different shades of blue card stock. I just have a normal paper cutter, so I just angled the paper to get the shapes I wanted.
I also printed off the invitation on the blue card stock and cut it out too!
Next I glued it onto the brown card stock (cut into 4ths)
Next up stamp embossing! I have embossing powder in the same shade of blue!!!
Now for my favorite part… Sewing the details onto the card. Using a darker shade of blue thread I first created a diamond shape.
Now to X through the design.
Pull the threads through the holes and knot and trim each end.
And all done! Put them in envelops and mail them and your all ready for the party!Do NOT miss a single post.
