  • How to make an invitation card. Sonogram Baby Shower Invitation - Step 1
    Step 1

    You'll need:
    Clip art (mine is from a google search)
    Baby Sonogram
    Photo editing software (I used Foto Flexor because it's free online)
    Card Stock or pre-made cards and envelopes
    Baby themed stamps
    Glue stick
    Markers and colored pencils
    Scissors
    Whatever decorations you'd like
    Construction paper or scrapbook paper

    Step 2

    First I used Foto Flexor to convert Belladonna's picture to black and white, because I didn't like the sepia color it was. Then I re-sized, cropped and meshed the photo and clip art until it looked like baby was in the belly. I used rounded edges to smooth baby into a belly shape. I reversed the color on the woman art so it was black around her, and I used the poster maker to add the border and text. Making the art and the picture work together takes a little practice and was the most difficult part . It took an hour or two for me with no previous editing experience. Foto Flexor is really easy, don't be scurred!

    Now you have your cover! Whew, the hard part is over. Because I already used Foto Flexor to re-size my art all I had to do was download it and print from Microsoft word.

  • Step 4

    I typed up the invite information I needed and made sure it would fit inside my card. Next I printed the info out.

    Step 5

    Then I cut out the cover picture and the inside information and decorated it a bit with colored pencils or markers. I used a glue stick to attach art/info.

    I used "baby" pastels mostly (powder blue, pale pink, yellow, green and lavender) but made 20 invites altogether and each one was original. For some I used construction paper cut to fit the cover. I outlined the inside info on all of them.

  • Step 6

    Last I used my mini baby stamps and stamped 3-6 times inside each card around the info, then colored the stamping in with colored pencils.
    On the back of each envelope I stamped mini baby feet on the closure.

    Voila! DIY magick!
