November Card of the Month: Fall Baby Shower Invitation

A few weeks ago we got to have a fall baby shower for a friend.  The hostesses planned a beautiful shower with food and decorations that were perfect for a baby shower in the fall.  When I learned that the shower would have a fall theme, I was thrilled – so many fun possibilities for a fall baby shower invitation!  I just had to share.  So November’s card of them month isn’t a thank you card or a Thanksgiving card like you might have expected.  Instead, it’s a baby shower invitation.

I started with an 8.5″ X 5.5″ piece of light blue card stock folded in half.  I thought about using brown, but I wanted something on the invitation to indicate it was for a baby boy.  I found some fall plaid paper with yellows, oranges, browns, and even a hint of the same blue that matched the blue background of the card.  I cut it into squares to look like baby blankets.  I attached a square with a pop-up dot in the lower right corner of each card.  I also punched some little hearts out of the same paper to accent the words “Little Pumpkin” which I printed out on return address sticky labels and stuck to the top left corner of each card.  I punched out orange circles to be baby pumpkins and added brown stems.  Those I attached on top of the plaid blankets using pop-up dots.  I kept the pumpkins’ faces very simple to make sure they looked like babies and not like jack-o-lanterns.  Now to look forward to meeting the real “little pumpkin” himself!
