I was asked by a close friend of mine if I would make some invitations for her for her parent's 30th anniversary vow renewal coming up in September. I thought I had an idea in my mind of what I was going to make them look like when I sat down but when I got started they just weren't turning out like I had hoped. Back to the drawing board I went and came up with this!
Isn't it cute? I think so and I really hope they like them.
I used Bordering Blue 12x12 cardstock
to make the base of the card. All the layers are done with More Mustard, Ridinghood Red, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White paper. I used a Texturz Plate from the Background 1 set with my Big Shot to create the embossing on the front. On the inside I used the large stamp from the Brocade Motifs stamp set inked with versamark on the pocket. I also stamped that same stamp on the bottom left corner of the envelopes (not pictured) using More Mustard ink. Other accessories I used are the Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" punch, and the 1 1/4" punch. The invitation and accommodations and rsvp card were all printed on my computer and cut to fit.

I did, however, have a card prepared to show for the 4th of July. I cased it from the new Idea Book and Catalog.
I used the colors Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Cherry Cobbler. I just love that new red! It's so nice and dark. I used a star stamp from an old retired set - can't remember the name right now. The thank you phrase is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I finished it off with some paper piercing. I forgot to put the little clip on it like in the catalog but I think it still looks alright without it :)
Hope you all had a fun and safe 4th of July!

Wow it's been a while. Sorry for the absence. No excuses other than "life happens". Here is a card I made a few weekends ago. I just love this bunny stamp! As soon as I saw it in the Spring Mini catalog I knew I had to have it and I knew I wanted to emboss it. It reminds me of when I was in elementary school and we sold the chocolate and white chocolate bunnies for a fundraiser for the school. Every year the Easter Bunny managed to buy one for me and my sister and put them in our Easter baskets. That's where they would sit for a few days after Easter and then would go in to the freezer where they would live until they had been nibbled or broken to bits and were finished.
Paper: Shades of Spring DSP, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Chocolate Bunny
Accessories: 5/8" So Saffron Grosgrain, White Satin, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch
