Here Comes the Bride.

I spent all day Saturday making these bridal shower invitations to ship to my sweet SIL Becky in Hawaii. I hope they make it across the ocean safe and sound! (too bad I wasn't personally delivering them to her)!

These heart cards open at the top and are closed with some SU! white taffeta ribbon. To open you would just slip off the little silver tie. All words inside and out were computer generated. I googled "bridal shower invitation words-sentiments" and come up with a nice saying inside with all the details.

Sorry for the wacky picture...I am learning how to edit in photoshop now that my computer moved to Windows 7. I am a little slow...I told my son it was easier to have him do it than to teach me LOL! I will get the hang of it soon!

I used a pack of SU Patterned Designer Series Paper in retired color of Tempting Turquoise, so there are many different patterns here. (of course I tend to like polka dots!)

I counted how many trips through my Big shot these cards took...125 oh my! Had to cut and emboss all of the invites. If you count how many times you "big shot" you must be either sick of it, or very thankful for all the help it gives!

Card Details:

-------------------------

Stamps: None

Cardstock: Su Tempting Turq DP, GP White for card base

Ink: None

Misc: Heart Nesties, SU! taffeta ribbon and silver cording (I am sad this is no longer carried by SU!), Cuttlebug folders, turq crystals

Pin It!
