 Hello To All My Crafty Friends,

I hope your day was a great one & that you are off to a great start for the New Year. I am so happy to be back posting on my blog & looking forward to your comments & any questions that you will have for me.

As I promised, here are pics of the wedding invitations that I designed & made, for my son & new dil's wedding this past September 2011.
Basia wanted to go with tropical colors, so I did the background on the front of the invitation that way.
Used a variety of cardstock colors by Bazzil.
I used contrasting colors of  cardstock, with the top one embossed.
Using Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
I cut out the bride & groom using my Cricut Expression & the Stretch Your Imagination cart.
On the wedding gown  I accented it with Stickles Diamond, then using a glitter marker of silver outlined the grooms attire.
Then I stamped the saying using one of the sentiments from Cloud 9 stamp set, called Simple Thoughts- wedding.
To finish the front of the invitation, I added contrasting colored  picot ribbon, by American Crafts.
On the inside, all the info was printed out on colored vellum with a flower accent.

Well the invitations seem to be a hit & I hope you enjoyed them too.
Please leave me any comments, questions & or suggestions on what your thoughts of my design are.
All  are always welcome, so please express yourself.

Until next time, have a wonderful & Blessed day.
Hugs, dee
