Parents-To-Bee Invitation

Hi my dears, here's an invitation I made for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law's baby shower last week. This invitation is actually a hybrid of a free bridal shower invitation download that I added stamping and cardstock to. I only made 4 of these invites since we used Evite to invite everyone to the shower. I made these for people who don't use email everyday.

I downloaded the invitation from Download & Print. Using Microsoft Word, I updated the text and printed it out on brochure paper. Since the invitation had a honey comb pattern, I used the bee image from Papertrey Ink's Baby Button Bits set. I used a black Copic marker to draw lines on a yellow button. I added a narrow strip of black cardstock to the invitation and a layer of black cardstock to make the invitation have more weight. I rounded all the corners with my Corner Chomper.

That's it! Simple right? Have a good one. I'll be back tomorrow.
