I'm past the stage of wanting to rear babies, but never tire of their innocence, their beauty, and their smell. I think the celebration of an upcoming birth is the best party to attend.
I came across some really pretty vellum paper a few years ago, screened with pearlized bibs baby shoes and bottles, and decided to create some baby shower invites. I found the perfect checkered paper and use it to back the vellum. Printing on the vellum came out better than I imagined it would. Instead of using ribbon to hold the vellum in place, I opted for brads, and they came out really cute. I listed these on Ebay and they sold like crazy! They were cute and whimsical while being elegant at the same time. I'm still hoping the remaining paper I have of this will be put to good use; I only have enough left to make 15 invites. I do have some smaller pieces of this paper, and may offer some matching thank you cards.
