Baby Shower Footprint Invitation


Baby Shower Footprint Invitation:
A Baby Footprint Makes A Great Baby Shower Invitation
By: Sam Smith

If you are like many people you can easily get stuck when it comes to the baby shower invitation. Finding the location, creating the guest lists and buying a cake can seem easy compared to picking the right invitation.

The baby shower invitation will be the first impression that the guests will have of the event. It is therefore important to convey a message through the baby shower invitation.

One really fun and very popular way to do this is use a baby footprint in the baby shower invitation.

It is hard to resist the charm of a tiny little baby footprint. Baby shower footprint invitations are so irresistible the invitee will just have to come to the shower.

So here are some creative ideas that you can use in creating your own baby shower footprint invitation.

1. Printed Baby Shower Footprint Invitation Design

A simple printed baby footprint can be a ton of fun. You can use a silhouette of a baby footprint to make the design. This will show the heel, toes and side of the foot.

It will look as if a baby stepped in ink and then stamped the card with their feet. You can find clip art online by searching, use a stamp, use a real baby or even just draw your own by freehand.

To put a little action into the baby shower footprint invitation you can make a series of footprints and make them decrease in size from large to small.

This will give the illusion that the baby leaving the prints is walking on the card. This is a great way to draw the attention of the viewer into the card. You can then place your important text information right above this.

2. Stamped Baby Shower Footprint Invitation Design

Stamping has become a very popular craft and is use widely among printers and crafters in the business of making invitations.

You can easily purchase baby footprint stamps of varying sizes from your local craft store or on the Internet.

These can make a fun and fancy decoration to the invitation. There are so many things you can do by varying the colors, size of the stamp and the paper the possibilities are really endless.

For example pick a cute pink (for girls) or a blue (for boys) ink pad and stamp a tiny border made up of footprints all around the invitation.

Donít worry to much about making the mall straight or in line just have fun and stamp at random. This will give the invitation a light fun feeling.

As an alternative you can purchase a large stamp and simply stamp a big filled in silhouetted image smack dab in the middle of the invitation. Then you can creatively with fun colored pens write all around the footprint following the outline of it. This makes another fun creative and even whimsical invitation.

3. Embossed Baby Shower Footprint Invitation Design

This is where the baby footprint is raised from the page. There are two types of embossing.

The first is by using a professional printer and paying to have the cards done. A printer can actually emboss the paper and have a raised footprint right in the paper.

A baby footprint embossed onto a beautifully textured pure white piece of paper can look very elegant!

If you are the do-it-yourself type it is very easy to purchase an embossing powder in stamping or craft store. These come in all kinds of fun colors but often gold or silver embossing powder can look very elegant!

With embossing powder you will need a stamp and some ink. You start by stamping the invitation with the baby footprint stamp first. Then before the ink dries you sprinkle some of the embossing powder on the stamped area.

The embossing powder will stick to the wet ink. You can then hold the piece of paper over a light bulb or use an embossing gun to heat the powder.

Once it gets hot it will melt and adhere to the paper. This makes a fun and easy way to have a very elegant gold embossed baby shower footprint invitation.

4. Cut-Out Baby Shower Footprint Invitation Design

With this technique you will want to find some stiff paper. Then you will pencil in an outline of a baby footprint and cut it out.

You can also make a simple stencilsuing a file folder and then quickly trace around the stencil and cut out to speed up the process and make the results moreuniform.

Then on the body of the cut out footprint you can write all of your important baby shower details. Where it will take place, RSVP information and so forth.

Either way that you choose the important thing to remember is to have fun in creating the baby shower invitation footprint.

Get some friends to help you if you plan on making your own invitations as this will speed up the entire process. It canalso be more fun with a group of girlfriends around a table talking and having a good time then cutting 25 baby shower footprint invitations all by yourself.

As an addition to the fun, baby shower footprint invitation, it can be lots of fun to continue with the footprint theme indecorating for the part.

You can use the same stamps and decorations that you used on the invitation in other places to decorate for the shower.
