It's a Girl! - Baby Shower Invitations

Hey there! I hope you're all having a great week! You may remember me mentioning that my sister is pregnant and due at the end of February. I'm super excited to be an auntie and thrilled that she's having a little girl too! They are naming her Isabella and I hope she and Madelyn will grow to be great playmates in the coming years.

My sister and her husband live in California which means I don't get to see her as often as I'd like. I'm heading out to California in January to attend CHA and I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to host a baby shower for her while I'm there! So I took a break from making Christmas cards, gifts, and tags for a couple days to put together the invitations for her baby shower. Here's the design I came up with:


It's a vertical pocket card and it was the perfect design for holding the details inside while still having enough space to embellish (but not too much space since I had to make 35 of these!). I've definitely told y'all that mass-production isn't my favorite thing, but I found that if I separated the cards into several steps it really wasn't that bad. The most tedious part ended up being writing out all the details for the info card! Here's a look at my piles before I glued everything together:


I had so much fun making these and I hope all the recipients love them! Now to figure out where I'm going to order desserts for the shower. Any suggestions from SoCal readers? The shower is in Lakewood so I'm looking for something nearby. I'd like to get a fancy cake and some cupcakes or cake pops. Here's a look at the pile. Seeing them all together makes me happy!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
