I decided to branch out of my comfort zone (sewing) to craft up some lovely invitations. Now if you know me and/or the bride you may be getting one of these so act surprised when you get it. Or, even better, when you get the invite send me a comment letting me know what you thought!
I offered to help make the invitations for the bridal shower. Here's the finished product:
I started by buying a pack of white cards and matching white envelopes. A great blank canvas! Then (since I don't own a cool Silhouette/Cricut/cutting machine) I purchased these two punches. The wedding colors are lilac and yellow. So I made flowers using the punch from two shades of purple cardstock. The flowers got layered with foam tape to make them 3D.
Then I bought self-adhesive ribbon. What a time saver here! I cut the ribbon to length and then in half.
The grass at the bottom I used my scalloped scissors to cut 2.5" stripes. Then used my straight scissors to cut the blades of grass in.
What do you think? I made a bunch of these guys and I love looking at them!
