Chevron-Tree Baby Shower Card

Chase's nursery is painted grey and chevron, with a white vinyl tree above his crib. I took Mom's decor and used it as inspiration for her shower card. I love that the new Cricut Explore can upload its own JPEGs, so I could find a tree similar to the one she had already. Since Dad is into Texas A&M, I added that logo too. Baby cards are some of my favorite because everyone is so unique in their theme, and I can spring off of that.

Products I used:

  • I'm really enjoying the Cricut's writing function!! This white pen is amazing - it's from American Crafts, and it's their medium-tipped Galaxy marker. Purchased at Hobby Lobby. It writes almost like a skinny paintbrush, and fits perfectly into the machine.
  • I recently found the chevron envelopes also at Hobby Lobby in a 50-pack, but it's hard to get the Cricut to write directly centered on the front.
  • The shiny grey paper doesn't photograph well, but looks great on the product itself. :)
  • The "Baby Prints" stickers are some of my favorite go-to's, they're STICKO brand and I regularly purchase them at Michaels.
