I submitted several styles of bridal shower invitation samples to a client, not knowing what direction she wanted: traditional, contemporary, elegant, whimsical. I was provided with only the bridal colors: red and ecru. After this sample was approved I was told, to my incredible luck, that the bride-to-be will be wearing a sleeveless dress similar to Emily's Sposabella. Thank you to Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie for having the Crate 'Snowing' cardstock available!!! The dress is outlined in a very pale blue Copic marker - #B41 - Powder Blue. Outlining anything in white, when the image itself is stamped on white cardstock, will allow the white to 'pop'. I learned this from the ultrafabulous and incredibly talented JulieHRR. The bridal bouquet is Christmas Red Stickles, and the base of her dress is Star Dust Stickles. The 'you're invited' sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The bride's hair is highlighted with a clear Glaze pen. The top edge of the Crate Snowing cardstock was gently distressed with a Tim Holtz paper distresser, then nipped at the lower corners with a ticket corner punch from Stampin' Up. Fabulous Valerie Stangle layout. Finished card size: A2 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") Sposabella - Stamping Bella; sentiment - Papertrey Ink; Palette Noir pad; white and celery cardstock; Copic markers; clear Glaze pen; Stickles glitter glues in Christmas Red and Star Dust; paper distresser; ticket corner punch - SU.
