My sister is getting married in a couple of weeks and I am throwing her a bridal shower. I’m having such a blast creating all the details to make this event special. You can expect to see several wedding themed posts coming in the near future! For today’s project, I used the Girls’ Night Out stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create this elegant invitation for the bridal shower.
I just love how this turned out. You can’t really see it well in the picture, but the Silver Foil and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper add a lovely sparkle to this card. I just know the guests will love getting this one in the mail.
I dry embossed a panel of Shimmery White card stock using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder to give the card face an added element of elegance. Then I stamped the bride image from Girls’ Night Out using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I cut out the sentiment using the Banner Framelits Die and my Big Shot. Then I added it to the front of my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a length of Silver Satin Ribbon, which is just glorious! Then I punched some flowers using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and my Petite Petals Punch and the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Finally, I glitzed them up a bit more with some Rhinestone accents, which tied everything together just perfectly.
I know my sister and her friends are going to love this invitation. It is the perfect start to what I hope will be a really fun evening with my favorite bride!
