My first cards
{before owning a cricut}

These are the invitations I HANDMADE for my baby shower last year. I had never tried to make cards before, I was only into scrapbook pages. I handmade 50 of these precious invites...took me soooo long, almost the whole pregnancy :)

I used vellum and drew the entire image, colored with Bic markers.
I attached it with 4 eyelets; one in each corner, to a premade card from Michaels [4" x 5.5"]
The charms I also bought at Michaels, and the ribbon is Sheer Creations.
The inside I printed a message on plain orange paper, I used a Martha Stewart safety pin punch, and little bows from Michaels.
Each carriage was hand cut out of assorted paint chips and the buttons are from "button buckets pink"
The "Its's A Shower!" stamp is Inkadinkado & the footprint stamp is Recollections, both in ColorBox ink in pink

Congratulation Michelle... That's really cute baby shower card but makes it more amazing because you have put on so much effort. I was just browsing and came across your blog.
