Bridal Shower Invites

Thank you to Zowie on SplitCoast, this card was chosen from among a bazillion "bride" cards.  A client is throwing a shower and wanted to make the invites, even though she has never stamped in her life and isn't a bit crafty. So I tried to guide her to a simple lovely invite, but she wanted beautiful and fancy. So this is the (almost) final version. It is beautiful and fancy. We had to track down this retired Stampin' Up! stamp set, but Laura N. F. found it at her Mom's and lent (is that a word?) it to us, which saved a buck! The hostess/client used Marvelous Markers to add color to the bride, pretty flowers and leaves, hair, crown. We had a group of six workers stamping, cutting, punching, tying, glittering and assembling cards last night. Eighty invites, yes, that's right, 80 cards, in 3 hours. Wow. That's all I can say, Wow. I did most of the cutting ahead of time, but still, 80 completed cards in 3 hours. Wowza.

Never let it be said that this craft is not for everyone! Grandma, neighbor, sister-in-laws, hostess and demonstrator + 3 hours of laughter and glitter = 80 fabulous invites!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Cute card. It is awesome that you guys got 80 put together in 3 hours. I will say that all the prep ahead work helps with that. Congrats to everyone who helped make them.
