Dinosaur Invitations for a baby shower
If you're expecting a bouncing baby boy then you have come to the right place for great ideas to make your shower invitations.
This cute invitation was made with patterned scrapbooking paper that you can get from any scrapbooking store or craft store, solid colored cardstock and ribbon. The invitation wording is typed up and printed onto a card and inserted into a pocket. This is a great design for a generic dinosaur themed party as you can substitute any of the patterned papers for whatever you have available in your craft supplies or at your craft store
I got the basic idea from the October 2007 issue of Scrapbook Trends Cards Magazine. The patterned papers are all from the Basic Grey collection Archaic.
Base Card – 6x6 Bazzill cardstock in Mocha Divine
2nd layer is Striped Paper – 5.75x5.75 scrapbooking paper by Basic Grey Archaic (Prehistoric)
3rd layer is Dino Paper – 5x5 Basic Grey Archaic (Dino)
Green Pocket – 4.5x3 Basic Grey Archaic (Timeworn)
I have run thin double sided tape along the two sides and the bottom of the card and stuck it down.
Plaid Piece of card on Pocket – 3x2 Basic Grey (Bygone Plaid)
Tag insert – 4.5x2.5 Bazzill French Vanilla (Text printed in Word with Bernard MT Condensed Font) I inked the edges of the tags with ColorBox’s Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan
There is another smaller tag at the back of the tag with directions to my house, which measures 4x2.5
Admit One Ticket – 2.5x1.25 French Vanilla (I made the ticket in Word and used Bernard MT Condensed font)
Ribbon – From Michaels
