My best friend is having her third baby boy in March (she had twins her first pregnancy) and I and several ladies from church are throwing her a Baby Shower at the end of the month. I made all the invitations for the event (with a little help from a friend at craft night, Friday night at the church building). Her husband is a huge Superman fan and her two 6 year old twins love any kind of Superhero there is...esp. Superman, Spiderman and Batman! So, that is how I came up with the theme for the shower. The boys' room (all three) is done in Superman/Superhero decor. They did a really cool job with the painting and decorations! So, I went to work with the invitation idea. My husband did help as well with the invitation "mock up" a couple of months ago. He changed a couple of things on my original idea but I admit, his idea wound up looking better in the end! (I had to mention his help, so that he doesn't get left out! :-) )
Anyway...I cut the "S" out on my Cricut using my SCAL software and the yellow diamond as well. I attached them together with spray adhesive. It worked great on the "S" since it is not one whole piece! I then printed out the Shower info on white cardstock, cut it out in a diamond shape using a template cut out on the Cricut as well. I inked the edges of the white cardstock with blue ink and then attached it to the yellow diamond. It looks so cute. I know it is different for a Shower Announcement but whatever it takes to suit the theme, right?
I know that Cricut sells a Superman Cartridge and I am sure that this emblem is on the cartridge; just FYI if you don't have the SCAL software. I know our Hobby Lobby has this cartridge right now for $28 in the clearance area. ALWAYS check the clearance, you never know what you might find! Remember, it might be "out of the box" but it is always homemade!
