Baby Shower Inspiration

One of my favorite methods of inspiration comes when I receive a baby shower invitation in the mail.  In this case, the invitation was rustic, with a buffalo plaid background.  The couple are very outdoorsy and the dad is a hunter.
Here's a gift set I created using the invitation I received, as you can see in the photo. 

I created the card using lots of dies.  Starting with the background, I used:
Frantic Stamper Birch Tree Forest
The bear is from a past Spellbinders Die Kit Of The Month
The sentiment was cut using Marianne Designs Letter Board.

I found this cute bear outfit, complete with ears on Amazon and the sign I found at Hobby Lobby, prior to the pandemic.

I created this framed wall decor using all the same dies, including a large deer from Taylored Expressions.  I added a little banner across the top with the baby's name.  

Here is the complete set.  Cute as a baby bear in a bucket of honey!
The card fit into a slot that I cut into the gift bag, making it a removable decoration on the gift bag.  

The baby shower was back in the beginning of February and I thought this set would be perfect for the new Cut It Up Challenge ~ Our Beautiful Earth.

I'll also be entering this card into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge ~ A is for Anything Goes

I hope you're staying in and staying healthy.

Thanks for stopping by!
