How To: Butterfly Shower Invitations

Yes, I've decided I'm going to milk this for all it's worth, and do at least a week's worth of posts from the shower! This is where all of my crafting energy has gone in the last month, so I think I'm definitely entitled.

(I am kindof dumb, and forgot to take pictures of the invitations before I sent them out! Lame… So I'll remake an invitation, maybe tonight, and have more pictures here later, I promise…)

Sarah found a paper pack called "Blossoms and Butterflies" by DCWV that went really well with her nursery scheme, so I bought myself a pack and decided to base the shower around it. (WARNING: The Silhouette really didn't like the glittery paper—I had to go through and cut through the glitters with an exacto knife, even at the slowest cut and thickest paper settings! It was time-consuming and frustrating… So be warned.) I made 4 different cut files for the invitations, because I made them somewhat complicated. I didn't find anything in the store I really liked, so I just made it up as I went.

Card Base cut file.(This is a link to a Silhouette Studio file. Right click and "Save as" or "Save Link As" or whatever your browser likes. If you don't have the Silhouette Studio program, then sorry, but you won't be able to use this file.)

This is the card base. It cuts out two cards per sheet of paper. I made it by melding together a rectangle, one of the swirls that came with the software, and some random butterflies I made. I wish I could give you the butterflies, but I made them into shapes and I don't know where the shapes are stored… Ah well.

Baby Shower text cut file.(Again with the right click and save.)

I'm disappointed with myself for choosing this font… Unfortunately, I realized that after gluing things together. If I could turn back time, I would have used Lobster 1.4 for the front instead… I love that font!

Registry information cut file.

I cut out these little butterflies to go in the invitation envelope. Cute!

…Aaaaand that's it with the invitations!
