Doodle Pantry Noah's Ark Baby Shower!

 When I saw Laurie's Noah's Ark image I envisioned baby shower invitations...and then, when I saw her incredibly adorable Noah's Ark favor boxes (SVG file and also available as a PDF template) my vision expanded to a whole baby shower!  This image and SVG is available today at Doodle Pantry (HERE!) along with other wonderful images for the New Release today.

I used Laurie's colored Noah's ark image and printed it in 3 sizes:  1" x 1", 2" x 2" and 6.5" x 6.5".  The 1" images were cut with circle SB Nesties and turned into cupcake pics; the 2" images were cut with SB large scallop squares and used for the invitations and the largest images were used for the banner.  I made 8 of everything.
The ark boxes were a dream to assemble - so much more simple than the favor boxes you can make with Cricut's Tags, Bags, & More.  

I tried something different for the invitations - a tri-fold card - and on one flap, I cut out a square (SB Classic squares) and embossed it; and for the front of the card, I cut out a scalloped square (again with SB Nesties).
 The image was mounted on the inside of the card and when you fold the sides close, it creates a really lovely layered look.

The banner was made using Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges --I'm loving this cartridge!  I alternated printed paper (from DCWV Citrus stack) and Bazzill cardstock --African Daisy and Carribean Breeze -- then placed a yellow bow in the center of each letter, along with a teal Doodle Bug button.  
So there you have it - a baby shower for 8 and all done in a day and half, thanks to one darling colored digi and amazing SVG favor!  Happy Creating, <3 Lisa
