I think I spent the majority of today cranking this card out. Of course, I made the card, and then multiplied it by 30. :) Thank goodness for roommates to drag into the mass production line!
My sister is getting married in July and I'm throwing her a shower on June 5th. I figured this was the weekend to crank out my invites... And the guest list kept on growing today! Every time I would finish a stack of cards (originally 24), a few more people would be added, hehe.
Sharon's whole wedding is very "nature" themed. It is going to be held outdoors, in the mountains, on top of a mountain. Therefore, I stuck with nature colors and stamps. As soon as I saw Dawn McVey's new stamp Background Basics: Woodgrain, I knew I had to have it! I was so perfect for these cards! I also pulled out that big leaf from Turning a New Leaf, stamped it thirty times, and yes, cut it out 30 times! Sheesh. Why oh why did I create a cutting project when that is my least favorite thing?!
I wanted to keep this card nice and flat so that I wouldn't have to pay extra postage on 30 cards, so a twine bow was the only ribbon. I did pop up the leaf and sentiment on dimensionals for just a little bit of pop.
Oh goodness, does it feel good to have these done! I love how they turned out. The picture really doesn't do them justice. I used up a ton of my dp and twine, so that's going to have to be refilled. But it's always good to finish something off in a great way. I didn't hoard it. :)
Oh, and the Celebrate font is the same font as their wedding invitations! I was so excited I had this stamp set!
Well, that's it out of me for today. The roomie and I are off to grab a movie to watch this evening (maybe The Blind Side. I know, I know. We haven't seen it yet!). And someone nearby is barbecuing and it smells really good... Maybe a grocery store stop is in order...
Thanks for stopping by!
