Little Golden Book Shower: Invitation

invite2 The perfect place to start our Little Golden Book themed shower week is, of course, with the invitations! I was lucky enough to find a high resolution image of the inside cover and got those printed with a local company. The blue background paper and the white inset paper were cut and printed at home. After using a decorative punch for both the top and the bottom, I glued the white inset to the blue and then used foam separators (found in scrapbooking section) to attach them to the background. A bit involved, I know, but I really like how the final invitation came out!

Here are the files I used to make the invitations: Background (flickr)White Inset (illustrator file) & Lauren Script Font (

And, just in case you want a super easy invitation to print and customize, here’s an invite you can print out and fill in. Just click on the image and you can download and print from scribd:
