Every time we participate in Wedding Shows, people go absolutely nuts over this lingerie shower invitation. So many times, I've seen people walking down the crowded Convention Center aisles and watch their eyes zone in on this invite, and then bee-line it right to our booth. It's funny to watch, but I understand their reaction because it's super cute and a little risque at the same time - a perfectly playful and girly invitation.
And it's great for a bachelorette party or lingerie shower. While it looks like it might be complicated to create, it's actually pretty easy as long as you have our template, one piece of 8.5" x 11" lightly-colored cover weight paper, one black sheet of paper, and some ribbon and rhinestones for embellishments.

You will start by printing out the template on a piece of plain scrap paper, you will be cutting this out and tracing it on your nicer cardstock. I'll break the invite down step by step to make it easier for you.

Step 1: After printing the template, cut it out on the dotted lines and then trace it on your lightly colored paper; then cut out that shape that you just traced. This will be the base of your card (the "skin" part).

Step 2:
Now, you want to take your cut out piece and fold that in half, since this part is the base of your card. I used a Scor-It Board to make sure I got a nice clean fold, as shown here:

Step 3: Take your template and now cut along the solid lines, this is going to create the template shapes for the underwear pieces.Next, line up your template on your black paper and trace those pieces.

Step 4
: Cut out the traced out bra and panty piece and adhere the bra to the front of the card like so:

Step 5:
Adhere the panty party to the back of the card and cut out little strips of paper and some ribbon to make the straps of the bra. Adhere the ribbon right on top of the black strip, and then adhere that to the card.

That's all there is to it! Easy, right? And once you have the templates cut out, you can make a bunch of these really quickly since it's just tracing and cutting. The best part of making this card is personalizing it and decorating it. I added some little cute ruffle ribbon to the back of mine to spruce it up.

I also LOVE the idea of blinging up the straps with rhinestones & glitter and switching up the color combos of the paper. Using some patterned paper for the bra and panty part would be super cute with some lacey ribbon. This is the kind of card that will make your phone start ringing with people asking you how you made it and wanting the template. Enjoy, and have fun with this one! --Lauren
