Both the bride and the groom have blue as a favorite color and Navy blue is one of the wedding colors. So for the announcements I did a 5x7 invite. I used the ticket corner punch to notch the corners. I did white cardstock over top of that (cut to 4.5x6.5) and stamped the cherry blossom image from Garden Silouhettes in Navy cardstock. Then I did the vellum over top of that with the announcement part printed on it. I tied a navy organdy ribbon at the top.
The ceremony cards were done on shimmery white cardstock. They are 2x3 and have the info printed on them with a flower from the came Garden Silouhettes set in Brocade Blue ink (stamped off once). (I didn't take a photo of those, sorry)
I hope the bride and groom like them (the have seen pictures of them, I just hope they like them in person!). I do need to revamp the wedding cake design. When I did the 3 that I posted in my last post, the bride had said that she really didn't know what she wanted. It wasn't until after I did the cakes that she told me what she had in mind. So I need to revamp the design to fit what she is wanting. Hopefully I can do it. That is my next project.
My friend Shelly emailed me the other day on Facebook and asked me if I would be willing to come up with an invite for a bridal shower she and her sister (my friend Lydia) are throwing for her brother's fiancee. They are doing a tea party bridal shower (how cute is that for an idea!) and asked me if I had any cute tea party stamps. I have almost 200 sets, and no tea party sets. But I told her that if I were her I would do an invite with spring flowers and the words You're Invited on the outside and then the tea party info on the inside. She loved that idea. So I came up with two announcements for her and Lydia to choose from. I hope this is what you had in mind ladies! Here they are!
This one is done with red, green and black and has roses. (Wreath of Roses from SU, I forgot I had this set actually! So glad I found it because I love this set)
This one is done with SU's set A Rose Is A Rose. I did the roses in spring colors of pinks, yellows and greens. The card is paper pierced around the edges of the focal image with a pink ribbon tied around it.
If you like the color scheme of one but like the images of the other, I can combine. Just let me know your thoughts!
