They are DONE!

Oh my gosh…you can't believe the relief I feel right now!  The Wedding Invitations are DONE, packed up and flying their way home on the airplane with my son and future daughter-in-law this morning.  Beth and I spent two solid 8 hour days on Monday and Tuesday finishing them.  I must admit, they took MUCH longer than I anticipated, even with me doing the preliminary work on the outside portfolios before Beth got here!  Only one mishap…I had printed out the Ohio Reception information, cut 180 of them and then realized that the date was WRONG!  Oh my!  I had to reprint them and recut all of those.  Hopefully, now my blog posting will get more regular and back to normal!  I feel like I've been neglecting you all!  lol!  And yes, I'll be showing off the wedding invitations after they have been mailed on May 1st.


So, today's post is a card that my Stamp Clubs made last month.    I used Stampin' Up!'s Extreme Guitar stamp again on this one, with the Extreme Elements stamps in the background.  It is similar to one I made HERE for the Stamping 411 challenge a couple weeks ago.


The base is Old Olive cardstock and I layered on the Sweet Pea Designer Paper in the houndstooth pattern.  I stamped the background with Extreme Elements in Sahara Sand and Old Olive, then stamped the guitar player in Craft Black ink on top.  I layered the Whisper White on Basic Black cardstock.


I stamped the greeting, Let's Celebrate, from On Your Birthday stamp set in Old Olive and punched with the Large Star punch.  I added two Small Star punches in Old Olive and Sahara Sand, with a Black Mini Brad.  There is a small Black Satin Ribbon tab along the left side.  I think it makes a  rockin' masculine birthday card!  I know my boys would love to get it!


I hope you have a wonderful day.  I have LOTS to catch up on…seems like a million emails, plus some major stamping and prep work for classes coming up!

Don't you just hate when you do something like that?   I usually print one copy and let the client look it over.   Once they give the ok, I print.  : )  Your cards are beautiful!  Hugs!!
