For the past month, I've been working on various projects for my friend's bridal shower. Last week, I detailed the invitations. This week I'm highlighting the Bachelorette Party Invitations. I went with a modern palette of pink (light and dark), black, lime green, and kraft brown for the shower invitations. This party called for something louder and brighter. I glanced through my card stock and settled on Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, and Rich Razzleberry. Nice and bright! These colors put together remind me of the Lisa Frank folders and trapper keepers I had in elementary school. Perfect throw back memory for a bunch of women in their early 30s.
The front side of the invites featured a fun coloring technique using the Irresistibly Yours DSP. This paper can be colored a variety of ways to show the white embossed design. I choose to create a starry night effect using my three ink colors. I simply sponged on each color into a random splotch pattern. After coloring, I took a baby wipe and gently wiped off the embossed areas until they were white again. I love the finished look! And each invite looks a little different. I added a stamped image from Your Perfect Day onto a die cut oval piece of cardstock. Simple but fun.
The back featured a piece of pattern DSP in one of the three colors behind the white cardstock with all the information. The back was looking a little plain so I added the stamped ring image. I had to fussy cut the rings, but they actually weren't too bad at all.
