Oh Boy!

I made these a while back and haven't had a chance to post them.  It was for a bridal shower for a woman at our church.  These are the invitations; they were all the same style, but I had 4 different patterned papers.  I pulled out an OLD SU! called "By Ones and Twos" that I got when I was pregnant with my twins 12 years ago!  It has a lot of twin themed sentiments, but it also has this adorable onsie which you can personalize with several different little baby related icons.  I chose to just use the onsie outline and I stamped it on the same paper as the base of each card.  I started by stamping the image directly onto the white panel so I would have the clothes hanger portion, then I stamped and fussy cut the image from the patterned paper and adhered it over the image on the panel.  It worked out perfectly.  Then I added a sweet little boy sentiment underneath.

Here is a closer look at each one.  The first one is my favorite, I think.  I love the pattern and the colors.  For each invitation, I also stamped the envelope with a fun baby boy themed image from another really old SU! set.

On this one, I ended up stamping the onsie on the paper in the opposite direction of how it is oriented on the background; I think it adds a fun look.
This is another fun design, just with different colors from the one that is my favorite.  You can really see the nice piercing detail on the white panel.
And the last one uses a fun paper that has a lot of sentiments that are little boy related.  Another super cute one.
The last picture shows the little cupcake toppers I made for the cupcakes.  Really easy but super cute.  My sister die cut the stars for me and then I stamped them with the sentiment.  It needed a little something else and I was looking at adding a copper glittery star on it somehow when my sister pointed out it would be really cute to put a tiny one in the center of the "O".  She was absolutely right and the little copper glittery star was the perfect embellishment!  Then we hot glued them to popsicle sticks and stuck them in the cupcakes.
