For me one of the more exciting things about being pregnant was the thought of my very own baby shower. Most importantly the winter baby shower invitations that I’d get to make.
When I was around 16 weeks pregnant a close friend of mine, Kristen, asked about baby shower plans. I was crossing my fingers that this particular friend would offer to host my baby shower. She loves planning parties and I knew she would do a fantastic job with all the fun details, food, and flowers. I already had a “Winter Baby Shower” theme in mind and when I told her some of my ideas she was totally on board.
Winter Baby Shower Invitations
Since baby was due in mid-March, January was good timing for the baby shower to occur and perfect for the winter baby shower theme. The one item that I wanted to be in charge of for the shower was making the winter baby shower invitations. I did so using my Silhouette Cameo and I’m sharing with you the steps along with a free template download for you to use as you please.

How to assemble Winter Baby Shower Invitations
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut all the pieces except the dark blue layer which I cut with a ruler and rotary cuter.
The frosted blue velum was placed onto the dark blue layer using a double-sided adhesive roller. I only placed the adhesive where it would be covered by the other layers. The glitter vinyl was stuck to the frosted velum. For the top white layer I used Studio Tac to adhere it onto the other layers.
On the backside of the invite, I attached the invitation information and surrounded with glitter snowflakes.
These winter baby shower invites were then sealed into metallic silver envelopes and sent off to the guest list.
No invitations would be complete without matching Thank Yous. From the same glitter vinyl I cut out “Thank You” and placed onto plain white folded cards.
I couldn’t have been made to feel more special at my baby shower. We had a small number of guests and way too much food. :)
Great memories were made and the winter baby shower themed details were so much fun!
