Elemental Baby Shower Invitation

I have to say that this Elemental Paper pack has to be one of the most versatile kits we have ever offered!! Even the name is appropriate - ELEMENTAL (el.e.men.tal) - fundamental or essential; basic. I must admit that I completely overlooked this kit initially, but now that I've used it, I'm IN LOVE!

The colors in this kit can be used for EVERY season and every occasion! Over the next few days, I'll be sharing some projects that I've made using this kit. And of course, each includes elements from our new Art Philosophy (AP) Cricut Cartridge!

Let's start with a Baby Shower theme!

Here is an invitation:

I used the font on our AP cartridge for the BABY and the stamp set Zoology for the animals. I also added some of the Elemental Complements Dimensional Elements to the front!


I also used my AP cartridge to cut the hole out of the front of the card to make a peek-a-boo card. Using the Center Point feature on the Cricut Expressions makes this technique a snap!

Finally, for the inside I used a scallop circle frame around the giraffe as well as shapes that coordinate with a stamp set included in the AP Cricut Collection for the actual invite. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you simply push a button to cut out your shape, then stamp on the shape and you're done! No more cutting out your images!!


At the bottom of the inside, I used on of the zip-strip borders from this paper back - love that new feature too! In addition to the Elemental L2 paper pack, I used Creme Brulee cardstock, Lagoon cardstock, and Kraft paper. I inked the edges of everything with Desert Sand ink.

Have you used this paper pack yet? I encourage you to give it a try! Thanks for looking!
