The Princess is here! In case you missed the announcement on my Facebook Page, my granddaughter was born on February 23! She is a doll and I love her to pieces! I’ll show you a photo of her at the end of this post. But first I want to show you the invitations that I made for the baby shower back in January.
In keeping with the pink, gray and white theme that was used in the decorations, I used the same colors for the invitations.
And of course I had to use glitter! All princesses love glitter! And grandmothers. Grandmothers love glitter, too!
And a tiara, of course!
These were fairly simple to make using the Print & Cut feature of the Silhouette.
- I drew a rectangle to the size I wanted: 5 x 7.5″ for the invitation
- I then filled the rectangle with a pink and white diagonal stripe pattern.
- I grabbed a bracket frame and color filled it with white and placed it over the top portion of the rectangle
- Then I drew a rounded rectangle filled with white which is where I typed the invitation details.
- I used Janda Quirkygirl font for all of the text
- Don’t forget to turn off the cut lines on the shapes that are inside of the rectangle.
- Turn on the registration marks, print and cut!
I cut the tiara out of glitter vinyl. You can barely see it, but in the photo above, I intentionally printed the shape of the tiara to help with placement of the teeny, tiny, fragile glitter vinyl tiara. The glittery dresses were made using Silhouette’s double-sided adhesive and Silhouette’s glitter. I just love that stuff; both the double-sided adhesive and the glitter. If you haven’t tried the Silhouette Glitter yet, I highly recommend it and I’m a bit of a glitter snob! And while you’re ordering the glitter, go ahead and order some of the double-sided adhesive, too. You’ll love it!
I love how they turned out and think they look better than the pricey store-bought invitations!
As promised, here’s peek at our princess!
Sweet, little Melanie!
