Pretty and Preggers

Pregnancy. It is a beautiful thing right? Morning sickness, stretch marks, uncontrollable bodily functions, and the sexy waddling and panting… sounds exciting! And people wonder why I am not in a rush to get pregnant. I haven’t even mentioned the miracle of the whole child birth process and how wonderful that is. But do I really need to go there? I didn’t think so.

To match the (real) beauty of pregnancy, I made these next invites for my new cousins Heather and Mike. They are cousins through marriage and I was so honored that they let me make these invites for their shower:

Baby shower invites, pregnant lady

I made 75 of these invites and 75 “Gift of a Book” inserts to match. These were also very simple to make. A little time consuming but I loved the way they turned out.

1) I used solid brown 12×12 cardstock and cut them into 5x7s for the background. On top is solid teal cardstock and the info was printed on transparent paper. The picture is a bit blurry but I really like the transparent paper to print on because it is crisp and you can still have colored/pattern backgrounds show through.

2) I made the pregger lady from an svg file through Sure Cuts A Lot on white cardstock. I found her online and made her into an .svg file. The purse and shoes were cut on some brown paper embellished with glittered flower bursts. It is hard to see in this picture but it was perfect! And I added some white pearl stickers on the handbag to top it off. Just click here for the Preggers.svg file!

3) The insert has a poem printed on white cardstock that is layered on top of a solid teal. I used the same paper I used for the handbag and shoes for the strip on the inserts.

That basically covers it! All you need is paper, glue, a trimmer, pearl stickers, and a Cricut to cut an .svg file of the pregnant lady out. Not too difficult. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I hope you liked these as much as the hostess did. As you can see below, a cake was made to match my design:

    These invitations were absolutely beautiful! Everyone who received one commented on how beautiful and authentic they were. The cake (pictured) was made to mirror the invitation and the bakery was thrilled with it and asked it they could use it for future sales! We were thrilled with the outcome!
