Bridal Shower

For today, I have for you a little 4 1/4 bridal shower invitation. Of course, this is an invitation that I would never actually want to mass produce, but an invitation, none the less! I suppose, though, that there could be ways to make it a lot easier on myself. I never think of those things, however, until afterwards. :)

I used the new Hanna Stamps, Rainy Days set (for the umbrella), as well as the Tis the Season set (for the gifts), and Lizzie Anne set (Gettin' Hitched) for the sentiment. I stamped the umbrella first, then masked it off to stamp a couple of gift bundles. Of course, I ended up paper piecing the umbrella, so other than the handle, I didn't even NEED to mask, since the lines would all be covered up, I'm now realizing! LOL Oh well...

Anyways, I flubbed up the shadowing underneath the image, so I decided to cut the whole thing out (I know. I can be a bit anal.) and place it on Dimensionals. Now it has a natural shadow! LOL The green layer is meant to look like a gift. Hope you like it!

Well, I'm off to get something done. I feel like I've got a million things to do, and not enough of me to go around. I'm sure that none of you ever feel like that!? {wink}

Remember that tonight at midnight is the Hanna Stamps release of the new set, Rainy Days! She's so cute, you just can't NOT love her! For my next card, I want to make one using the adorable little ducky. Until then...

  1. The background paper that you wrapped? Is that a spellbinders die? I keep seeing cards with those perfectly scalloped corners. I haven't paid enough attention to spellbinders, and now I need to get me some! I love what you did with your Hanna sets.

  2. Very cute card! I totally got that the green layer was a gift. I love the colors you used too, very bright and happy!

  3. Great card, ingenious idea to make the green layer a gift!

  4. How darling. I love the umbrella. I guess I'll have to start buying Hanna stamps, now.

  5. that would be very time consuming to mass produce, but really cute non the less! Love your coloring!

  6. Cute shower card, and I love the paper piecing!

  7. So cute - I love how you made the mat look like a present! Adorable!
