Howdy y'all! Just wanted to share this cute baby shower invite that I made sometime ago for my dear sister-in-law when she was preggo with her first baby.
To make these, I had some help from my hubby who happens to be a graphics pro. I found some western invites that I really liked and he recreated the hat, boots and blocks design for me. I did all the text. For the text, I found western fonts for free and downloaded them. Once that part was done, I printed these out and was ready to move on to the fun stuff.
I used this craft hole punch to create the little circles.
Next, I rolled the edges along the ink pad to give it a little color so it would pop. You can angle it a less or more for thin or thick effect.
I wanted it to be subtle but enough to see the color and this is what I ended up with.
To size my brown card stock, I measured the printed sheet and added enough extra to allow for the folded flap. I had to use the little circle cut-outs to measure the flap. Once I folded the card stock, using the circle, I made a hole punch above and below the circle to run my ribbon through.
I wrapped the longer side from the top of the card stock around the back and back over to the front.
This is how it looks right before I tied my knot to finish off the ribbon.
Lastly, I added the cute little circle and with a glue dot, I added these cute little boots which I found at Hobby Lobby. It was night time when I took these and the lighting was really bad. The colors are a little more vibrant in person but you get the overall idea of the invite. My sister-in-law loved them! She's my partner in crime when it comes to creating invites so I'm glad I was able to impress her with these.
Thanks for visiting. Y'all come back now, Ya Hear! :)
