Pooh Baby Shower Invitation





Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is to make an invitation or announcement. Such as for a wedding, baby, or party.
I am going to admit that I LOVE how this turned out! Pooh is so stinkin cute and just screams "Baby" to me. I love Disney images for Cricut, but they are SO hard to put together. SO....I did my cheater method with my Imagine. My "cheater method", incase you've never heard me talk of it before, is to layer all the cuts on top of each other in Cricut Craft Room and then just print using my Imagine. After it was printed, I trimmed it down and rounded the corners. I added it to a chocolate brown mat and added the ribbon by punching holes and threading ribbon through. Then I stamped all the sentiments using My Craft Spot's New Arrival set. This set makes it so easy to create beautiful handmade invitations! To finish I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles and Pooh's nose.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my invitation and will play along this week! Please don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT had created. Have a wonderful day!

So cute, the pooh image is perfect and the glossy look on the water is darling. I would love to try the cheater method but I'm afraid to hook up my Imagine to CCR....what if it breaks.....akkkk!!!

Margie said...

Love it, GiGi! I agree, those character cuts could be a real pain and the Imagine does make for some great shortcuts! Fabulous job on this one!
