Giraffe Baby Shower Invitations!!!

Are these cute or what !!!!!

Front of Baby Shower Invitation

Inside of Baby Shower Invitation

I was asked to design baby shower invitations for my sister's friend.  Not knowing if the baby is a boy or a girl made it challenging to find the appropriate cardstock and paper to use for this occasion.  I fell in love with the quilt paper and knew it would be perfect for this invitation.  I then found the giraffe embossing folder in a brand new set by Cuttlebug -- perfect size for what I was looking for!  I started to play with various designs until I decided upon this one in particular.  I added the border strip to bring a little texture to the invitation...but it was still missing something.  I then decided to use my "baby" stamp and punch out the small tag and attach it to the ribbon knot using white bakers twine...that was exactly what was needed to put the finishing touch on the card front!

I used the same giraffe embossing folder for the inside of the invitation, tweaking the word to fit the area around the giraffe, balancing the words to the embossed image.  I decided to use a green font color to coordinate with the green mat underneath the giraffe on the front of the invitation, to pull the theme together.  I am so happy with the results!  

Let me know what you think!
