This is a great baby shower invitation idea that I'm sure you're guests have never seen. If you can convince the mom-to-be to go along with the idea it will be adorable!
There are two ways to make this invitation:
Follow the directions below.
- or -
Use your photo editing software to brighten your photograph to make it look like a background image. Print the wording directly onto the photo (with no vellum overlay).
Items You Need to Make this Invite...
Side profile photo of your mom-to-be
Patterned scrapbook paper
Solid cardstock paper
Cut a piece of patterned scrapbook paper to your desired size. This will become the back piece of you invitation, so therefore it is the largest in size. In my example, I cut it 7" wide by 5.25" high.
Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock paper 1/2" smaller than your patterned piece of paper.
Print the photo of your mom-to-be on a sheet of regular or photo paper and cut it 1/2" smaller (both for width and height) than your colored sheet of cardstock. This doesn't have to be a profile photo...you could use any photo of her, or even a copy of the ultrasound photo.
baby shower wording
onto a sheet of vellum and cut it to the same size as the photo.
Attach the layers together with a brad in each corner of the photo/vellum.
