Baby Shower Pocket Invitations

I was asked to make invitations for a baby shower.  The couple do not know the sex of the baby. I was told that they went with a yellow and white theme for the nursery so I went with that color scheme for the invitations.  

To make the pocket, I started with a 4.25" x 11" piece of PTI harvest gold card stock.  I scored it at 1.25" and 5.5".  I used red sticky tape along the edges to close it. I used my corner chomper to round the edges. Before adhering the flap down, I embossed a 4.25" x 4.25" piece of PTI white card stock using the SU polka dot embossing folder and adhered it to the front of the pocket.  I embellished the flap with a border made from white card stock punched with a SU eyelet border punch and a 3/8" x 4.25 strip of Bo Bunny Mellow Yellow Dot patterned paper.  I stamped "You're invited" (from the SU Blissful Bride stamp set in Momento Tuxedo black.  I used the PTI Beautiful Blooms II #1 die collection to create the flower embellishment. The onesie is from the SU Baby Bundle set and I colored it with copics.



The tag is 3,25" x 4.75".  I rounded the corners with my corner chomper and added a 3/8" strip of coordinating patterned paper.   I added a piece of PTI Harvest Gold bitty dot satin ribbon. 


Here's another view:


And for a finishing touch, I used the PTI A2 envelope liner die to line all of the envelopes with matching patterned paper.
