I am hosting my friend's bridal shower later this month. I had so many ideas of where to go with the theme, decor, food, and invites. I finally decided to sit down and commit to something. Her wedding color is purple, but for the invites I decided to go in a very different direction. I found this great washi tape and other decor accessories on sale at Michael's last week. I decided to build my invite color palette off of that that. So in Stampin' Up color terms, the party with be Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake, and Black. Instead of a card that opens, I went with just a front and back design on one piece of cardstock. The final result ended up being as thick as a card, but doesn't open. The back is pretty simplistic. I layered on a piece of Pistachio, Blushing, or Strawberry onto the Kraft paper. From there I added a piece of white stamped with the invite info and two pieces of washi tape. Each of the 36 invites looks a little different. I tried to mix up the combo of washi tapes and ink colors.
The front side has a lot more going on. I layered a piece of Strawberry or Pistachio DSP on top of the Kraft paper. Then I added a banner in the opposite color. The stamped banner is from Your Perfect Day. Initially that was all I was going to do, but the card looked too plain. A stamped Petal Potpurri flower and a Something Borrowed jewel complete the invite. I'll share photos of the event and decor after it happens later this month. I can't wait!
