Baby Shower invitation

DSC07113Once in awhile, my friends ask me to make their wedding invitations, and my friend Alice loved theirs so much, that she wanted me to also make her invitations for a baby shower she was hosting for her sister.  I was excited to tackle this project, though fighting a huge energy decrease from my own pregnancy.  At the time we were coming up with a design we didn’t know the gender or genders of her twins to be, so we came up with a very neutral and festive color scheme of silver and white.  I used our Shimmery White cardstock since it has great weight and gives a great sparkle to add to the silver theme.  I embossed the baby tees image with Silver embossing powder and added a simple strip of White organza ribbon to the top.  Embossing x40 definitely took a lot of time, but I was really happy with the results after only sacrificing 1 embossed image (ALWAYS use the embossing buddy, it really is your friend!)
