Criss Cross Invitations

Here is a picture of the baby shower invitations I had been working on. 30 cards later and a few alterations, here is the finished product. I originally had a strap that went around the card with paper, ribbon and then the sentiment, however it made the card too thick and the envelopes would have ripped in the mail. Unfortunately I had to remove the paper strap, but I kept the ribbon. My friends who are giving the shower wanted a Disney theme but not to have the really bright Disney colors. I found this designer paper at a local scrapbook store, and guess what its Disney paper! I used my creative memories Mickey punch to punch out the Mickey symbol on the dp on the left hand side. This criss cross cards base is 5 1/2 by 12, so I didn't need to attach two pieces of paper.

The inside is white cardstock with the info, on top of grey cardstock. I then stamped images from Polka Dots & Petals with Real Red, attached some ribbon and this baby is done.

These are wonderful and how fun to have a different theme and use non-traditional baby shower colors too! Nice work!!
