I've been away from home so much visiting my mom and uncle in California that I have not been able to do much stamping (or work on learning how to add new do-dads to this blog). However, I was home to prepare for a Stampin' Baby Shower for a dear friend last month and I want to share those projects with you! Today I will show you the invitation:

The invitation is really a MDS hybrid.
I used MDS to create the camoflage background pattern and the "You're Invited!"
words, then cut both using the Big Shot and the  Labels Collection Framelits  (#125598, $26.95 for set of 6)
The parasol is a retired stamp I embossed with a metallic I created by mixing
Early Espresso Embossing Powder (#128980, $4.75) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129, $4.75)
It creates a vintage-look antique bronze!
The "it's a shower" stamp is from the new "Cuddles & Kisses" baby sentiments set
(#127312 WM, $25.95;  #127314 CM, $18.95)
After adhering the camoflage shape to the Old Olive background  panel, I ran it through the Big Shot 
with the Square Lattice  Embossing Folder (#119976, $7.95) 

The inside of the invitation card is a folded square of paper
that opens up.  It is called an "explosion card" and
 is really easy to make! I used My Digital Studio
to create my insert using digital stampbrushes,
and text for all the information. Below is the open invitation.
