Your invited...

Hello.  So have you seen the Diaper Card die from Top Dog Dies?  So stinking cute!  I've thought of several fun ways to use this die but my fave is to make this baby shower invitation.  I have a friend who is expecting her first (a boy) and wanted to help her out by making some invites and this die made it so easy to reproduce.

Here is how I did it.  I used some navy blue CS for the base and used some My Mind's Eye DP to make another layer for the front.  When I put it together, there is an option to tuck the diaper flaps in, but I wanted to use the fun yellow twill ribbon to tie it, so I used a little punch to make slits for my ribbon.  I finished it off with a tag clipped with a tiny safety pin... and perfection!  So very easy and the details are inside.

If I get the time, I'll use this die again to make make her a banner with yellow lettering that says welcome baby.  It will be fabulous!  I am so excited for her and can't wait for the shower. I've got to come up with some games to play.  Any ideas?  Today's Question of the Day is- what is your favorite baby shower game?
