For my friend’s baby shower that I hosted, I hand made the enchanted forest baby shower invitations. I think they turned out super cute!

- Blank invitation and envelope
- Blue sky patterned paper
- Green, brown and mint textured card stock
- Fiskars Grass Punch
- Neutrals card stock pack
- Terrifically tacky tape
- Light blue ribbon
To make the outside of the invitation, I started with some blue sky paper and cut it to fit the top 2/3 of the card. I cut a piece of green textured cardstock to fit the bottom 1/3 of the card and used my Fiskars grass punch to cut out the grass design.
The deer and the owl were cut using my Cricut and the Create a Critter cartridge. This has got to be one of my favorite cartridges. The critters are so cute! For the owl, I used mint textured card stock, light tan card stock, brown card stock and light brown card stock.
For the deer, I used brown textured card stock, light tan card stock and black card stock.
I printed the saying onto vellum, cut it out and attached it with Terrifically Tacky Tape. I made a small bow with blue ribbon and used the Terrifically Tacky Tape to attach the bow to the vellum. This also worked to hide the piece of tape I used to attach the vellum to the card.
On the inside, I was originally planning on printing the invitation information directly to the blank card, but my printer would jam every time I would feed one through. So, I improvised and printed out the details on plain white card stock and adhered it to the inside of the card.
