A friend at work ask me to help with a baby shower invitation for another friend who is about to have her 2nd baby boy. We didn't need to send it in the mail we just needed one to post at work. She is going to be doing her nursery using an adorable design from Pottery Barn.
Then I used the Hero Arts clear set CL372 to stamp the fish, clams, and sand dollars on some of the squares. I kept those images tone on tone so they wouldn't be too busy and take away from the sail boat. The whale at the bottom is also from that set and was stamped with Adirondak citrus ink on white card stock, colored with copic markers, B0000 and R08. Cut out and attached.
I made my own pattern for the sail boat. But the first step was printing the details of the invitation on white card stock, in a pattern that would fit on the sail and on the boat. Then I cut the sail out of white card stock and the boat out of patterned paper from papertrey ink. Used a SU bashful blue marker to add details to the edges of the white card stock. Free cut the flag out of the darker blue card stock. and edged with white gel pen.
And here is the result:
One last step was to place this on a 81/2 by 11 piece of card stock. Now all that is left is to hope they like it..
I just love that little whale stamp. Isn't it just the cutest?
Have a wonderful day!
