    Default What do you think? Final invite, pg 2

    I sat down today to draw out some designs for a Baby Shower card so I knew what I needed for supplies, etc, before starting. This one came to me and it just seemed to come together so well.

    Of course it's ROUGH. There will be colored pages with printed inserts.

    Is any info missing? Is it too crowded? Anything that should be added (decorative wise)? Should I stamp a baby image on the blank back sides of the inserts? I have to make a bunch of these... so a little fuss is good- a lot, no.

    Let me know what you think.

    Oh, it's a standard homemade card size... 5.5 by approx 4 inches.

    Wow, those will be fabulous! I love the matchstick book idea. Are you sure it won't be too much work though? Could you reduce one page or something to make it easier on yourself? But if you don't mind doing them, they are going to turn out wonderful!

    It's 3 pieces of 4x7 paper that's staggered and then folded over. I plan on making it that way too. All the pages are info that needs to be in the invite. I plan on having a cardstock background and then printing the info pages off on the computer, cutting them down and pasting that in. I thought that would take the least amount of time overall, as I'd already have to cut down all the inserts... and then make sure every one made it in every card.

    I agree! I think they will be very cute. We did the book instead of card thing for my shower too and my DH actually found the cutest type of poem to explain bringing a book instead of card, I will try to find it for you.
