Shower Invitation

This is the shower invitation I made for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower next month!  I think they turned out SO cute!  I know you've seen this dress around, but it was just too darling not to use.

 

Her colors are cornflower blue and sand because it is a destination wedding in Riviera Maya.  I used the Kraft cardstock for the base.  I used a metallic blue cardstock (non SU) for the blue and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (the same cardstock I'm using on their wedding invites.)  I first did a pattern for the dress by cutting chipboard with the large Scallop Circle die, then cutting off the sides.  I ran the Bride Designer Paper thru the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle Die and then used the dress pattern I made to cut them out.

 

I wrapped Kraft Taffeta Ribbon around the waist and used the Trio Flower punch from scrap metallic blue cardstock to make the flower.  I added a white Mini brad in the center.  I stamped You're Invited from Family Phrases on Kraft cardstock and punched with the Small Oval Punch, then layered on Large Oval from Shimmer White and another Kraft Scallop Oval.

 

IHope you enjoyed the Tour de Freaks Blog Hop over the weekend!  Isn't there some fabulous talent in this group?
