The most rewarding part of card making for me is doing something "custom" for someone. These shower invites are for an upcoming wedding of a really sweet lady. I tried to make cards that would suit her personality. My SIL ordered them from me and gave me her colors blue and mauve and she wanted hydrangeas. Not a color combo I was used to so it was a little bit of a challenge. I also didn't have any hydrangea stamps so I had to create my own with these memory box (bold flower collection) flowers. I had some primas....of coarse they were the wrong color....so I inked them to match the color palette. The little tag is shrink film.
My little tip:
DO remember to punch out the little hole in your shrink film BEFORE shrinking it! LOL! You know I've made this mistake one too many times!
I tucked the ribbon through the hole and then secured it all with the center snap. They are having the shower at a tea house so I thought the little dainty tea cup was fitting. Aged it a little with some caramel ink.
I hope you like them Lara, thanks for your order!
