On to my creation! I actually have three to share today!
First up, I knew I wanted to combine the Happily Ever After set with the set we sneak peeked on Wednesday -- Summer Blossoms! You can see that I stamped the Happily Ever After sentiment in the center of a frame I created with the fern leaf line (made into a circular shape) and one of the floral brackets from the Summer Blossoms set! Card Tidbits! Songbird Prima Paper, Ivory Cotton Linen Ribbon, Golden Yellow Pleated Ribbon, Toffee Crunch Memento Ink, Classic Ivory Card Stock, Copic Markers (I used the Green Grass, Dahlia, and Sunflower Collections).
Here's a close up!
Now, these next two samples are fun -- in my humble opinion and show that you can do a little or a lot and create an impact with this Invitation Blank! I used the same basic layout for both creations. For the first one, I stamped the Summer Blossoms with Tuxedo Black Ink after printing my invite on Flourishes Classic White. I colored with Copics (Daffodil, Poppy, Spring Greens and Dahlia Collections), added some paper piercing, matted it on some Howdy Doody decorative paper and then before attaching it to my mat, wrapped and tied a ribbon with some May Arts ribbon! Ta da!
Here's a close up of the flowers!
And... here's the CAS version! I stamped the Summer Blossoms using Memento London Fog, added some liquid pearls to the cetner of my largest flowers, edged my invite with some silver leaf pen and added some silver cording! I did mat it up on some black card stock for a little extra pop. I think this would be a great invite for a small wedding or even a silver anniversary party!
And heres a close up!
