Bridal Shower Invites

Quick & Easy

Don't you just love those 2 words - Quick & Easy. Sometimes card making for me isn't quick or easy -- but it was for this project. My daughter called me up and said she needed bridal shower invitations for her sister-in-law ASAP. Right away I thought of my dress stamp from Great Impressions. Since my mind was in "Think simple. Think A Muse", mode I was able to have a sample card made up, picture taken and emailed her a sample in less than 30 minutes!

I stamped the dress with Versamark and heat embossed with Bridal embossing glitter. Cut out and attached to pink and brown layer with dimensionals. I found this really cool cardstock the other day from Doodlebug. It's called Crushed Velvet. This stuff is awesome. It punches out perfect with hand punches! I got it at a LSS and it was $1.99 for 1 piece of 12x12. You know how many flowers I can punch out of that sheet!! I punched holes in the center of the flower. Tied a piece of ribbon in a knot and threaded both ends of the ribbon through the hole to the back. I like how the knot on top of the flower turned out that way. Attached to dress with red sticky strip. Makes it "mail friendly" :)
