I wanted to create a more rustic card using a negative cut scrap piece from the card I made here. I distressed the edges of the negative cut then inked and distressed the sentiment. I used a cut of raffia ribbon that I've had forever. I used 3M dimensional adhesive to the negative cut and sentiment.

I was asked to do take care of Bridal Shower invitations for my sister-in-law's upcoming shower hosted by her aunt. Of course I couldn't go out a buy pre-made ones...I had to make them. We wanted something bright and colorful, but nothing over the top girly (because that's not who she is). After hours of searching on pinterest and using the paper her aunt got for other decorations, I came up with this:
I printed out each invitation with the information. Then, I stamped them using Hero Arts Large Solid Flower, Small Solid Flower, and Small Open Flower then heat embossed.
I also wanted to give her something that she could use throughout the years and would have special meaning to her, so with the invitation, I sent 3 recipe cards to each guest asking them to write down their favorite family recipes. Most guests in attendance were from her family and included many recipes she grew up eating at family gatherings. I found a beautiful little box to put them in and they were given to her at the shower.
I printed the lines and words, then softly stamped the cards with Inkadinkado Lace Doilies.
