A Boy or Girl? Wait and See!

In about three months, I will be an Auntie!!  My sister and brother-in-law are expecting their first child and have decided to wait until the birth to know if it will be a boy or a girl.  I can't wait!

They decided on a giraffe theme for the nursery, so for the baby shower invitations, I wanted to do the same.  The invitations turned out pretty cute, I think.  It was my very first project trying out my Copic markers.

Copics:

Ears & Nose: E41, Y21
Face: Y21, Y23
Body: Y21, Y23, E34
Mane: E39, E34
Eyes: E39


I added diamond stickles to the tip of the horns to add a touch of sparkle and white gel pen stitch marks to frame out the yellow layer. The baby giraffe stamp and sentiment are by Stampendous.  I used Gina K Designs pure luxury heavyweight cardstock in warm cocoa, sweet corn, and white; the layer of white textured cardstock is embossed with a giraffe print.

Across from the event information, I added a cute saying about signing a book in lieu of a card so we can begin a library of childhood classics.



I'm really happy with the way they turnout out.  Perfect for a boy or a girl... now we all just have to wait and see...
