Had a Go at Making My Own Baby Shower Invitations!

Picture of Baby Shower Invitation CardOn Saturday afternoon I thought I’d have a go at making my own Baby Shower invitation! I spent sometime looking through Google images to get some inspiration and then set to work on it.

I found some pink gingham sticky backed fabric and some suitable buttons to make the pram. I then managed to use a straight stitch on my sewing machine to create the pram legs! Printing the details inside was the tricky bit as the printer wouldn’t play nice! In the end I managed to do it after several attempts and added some sticky pink stripey tape above and below the text.

I dug out my 3D sticky squares so I could make the Baby Shower printed card stand out on the front.

And hey presto it was finished! Then I had to have a snooze as all that creative effort had worn me out! Goodness knows if I’ll have the energy to make 15-20 of them, so we might be back to buying some!

Baby Cards and Baby Shower Invitations Made in the UK

I started searching at Folksy (www.folksy.co.uk) and found this lovely pink pram card (£2) from Love Maisy. She also makes this fabulous baby bunting (£3.25)…Picture of Pink Baby Grow Bunting

I then looked at Etsy (www.etsy.com) to see if there were any UK based card makers and found paperspice! There are some gorgeous baby card designs here, which can be customised and then supplied as a digital file for you to print off at home or give to a professional printer to produce for you.
