Select your desired prints from the paper stack; half will be used for the background of the outside and half used with your invitation stamp set.
Begin preparing the outside by cutting a 5½"x11" strip from the first print. Use your scoring tool to fold this in half directly down the middle so that this becomes a 5½"x5½" card. Repeat as many times as needed for your remaining cards. Set aside.
Cut down the cardstock that will be stamped to 4½"x5½". Take out your desired stamp, put it on the stamping block and proceed to stamp your pieces using the complementing ink color.
Before adhering your stamped pieces to the front of your card, cut orange ribbon into lengths of 15". Cut one piece for every invitation that you will be making.
Beginning with the first invitation, take out one card, one stamped square and one piece of ribbon. Fold the ribbon in half and adhere to the front of the card, in the center, using Glue Dots®. Adhere the stamped section to the front of the ribbon, centered between the sides and top of the card. Finish off the card by adding a baby feet charm to the ribbon with a jump ring, just above the stamped section.
