(The rest of the photos are at the end)
I did this for the same girl whose invites I also made, I have a ton of other stuff to do for her (all the baby bedding, two diaper bags, and were making the cakes for the next 2 showers) but I couldn't just show up empty handed to the first shower.
The poka dot paper is from the Nana's Kids stack, the "BABY" is cut with Mickey Font, "Isabella" is off of the Calligraphy collection, and there are super tiny hearts that make up the holes for the binding from Doodlecharms (the shift border for the mailbox, as well as a ducky and a bear), as well as other things from Stretch your Imagination (Baby, Baby Stroller) and other assorted stickers that I've picked up along the way.
I bound it with clear PVC binding, which I keep on hand for word books, and tied green, pink, and purple ribbon to the binding to dress it up.
I cut all of the base pages out of gift boxes and then covered them in pink bazzil cardstock that I picked up Michaels.
For this being a 5 hour project, I was pretty happy with the end result. :)

Back at Valentine's Day we did an all ladies show for Rocky Horror (and two boys since I didn't have enough ladies). I gave everyone a card, and a bag of goodies as a thank you for putting extra effort into the show.
These were just store purchased sacs that I used Doodlecharms to cut out hearts and Stone Script to cut the initial... pink bags were for ladies and red for boys. This was my card, I cut the Thanks from Calligraphy collection at 1.5 and the heart from the same cartridge. I used the lip print with xoxo (cuttlebug) to emboss the corner, and stamped them with a corset stamp that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby this past fall.

So between these 3 designs I've made 130 cards in the last month. I did them for a friend who ironically is due on my birthday. I've only charged her the cost of supplies, but wonder what I could actually get for these in today's market. The insides are stamped on white card stock that was glued in with Who, What, Date, Time, Where, Hosted by and Registered at, and she hand wrote in the information.
They were cut using my Cricut, and embossed using a CuddleBug folder.
I've done a bunch of other cards since January too.... but those will have to wait until later. :)
