Shower time!

My niece is getting married next moth and today was her bridal shower, she picked the most unusual color scheme for her wedding but it is truly stunning: Orange, green with grey and black, it did not scream wedding to me at first until I played around with the colors, here is the card I made her:

Dress card die cut: Creative Cuts & More, Stamps: Autumn Leaves, Inkadinkado, Stampin Up, Paper: Bazzill, American Crafts

I found this Dress Window die cut card from Creative Cuts & More stashed away with my white paper scraps and had to use it, I added some stamping and decorated the inside so there would be something pretty to see though the dress cutout:

I think I like decorating the inside of the card as much as I like making my homemade envelopes!

The envelope for this card is a SVG freebie (to cut with your Cricut and SCAL software) I designed and you can grab it here, it is adjustable in SCAL2 (square or rectangle), in scal 1 you are stuck with it being a square envelope, but you can still make it whatever size square you want.

Now, my niece is a very talented crafter, she was over the other day using my Cricut and she told me that she was going to buy thank you cards for the wedding instead of making them (Hats off to any bride who sends thank you notes, homemade or store-bought!) so I decided to letterpress her a set of 10 thank you notes, here you can see the detail of the debossed letterpress design:

Letterpress plates and paper: Lifestyle Crafts

If you remember a few months ago I showed you how I made a letterpress bed to fit in my Big Shot diecutter, if you want directions to make one for less than $10 check out this post, as you can see it works as well as the $149 kit from Lifestyle crafts and you can use their plates in it. Here are the cards and matching envies:

Envelope paper: K&Co, Tool: Scor-pal

Also I while back I showed you how to make envelopes with your Scor-pal, if you missed it you can see the video and grab my cheat sheet here.

These projects qualify for the following challenges: Annabelles Stamps (embossing), Clearly I Stamp (thank you cards), Cowgirls Sunday Stamping Challenge, DigiDoodles (anything goes), Creative craft Challenge (bride),  I Did It (buttons & bows), Totally Gorjuss (congrats) and Wee Memories (stamping.)

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
