My guest artist this week is one of the lovely girls I work with, Brie.
How would you like to receive an invitation for High Afternoon Tea and for the rest of a Hen’s night/weekend looking like this? It’s pretty special, isn’t it? Brie is a bridesmaid in August and for her bride she made these lovely invitations for the bride’s Hen’s weekend. I’m sure you will all agree, Brie has done a fantastic job!
If you are wondering about how to recreate an invitation like this, well Brie used Pretty in Pink and Old Olive cardstock with the matching Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon. She stamped the images using Boho Backgrounds and “Party Time” from a Sale-a-Bration stamp set.
There were also a lot of punches used and lots of punching, wasn’t there Brie!? Brie started with the corner rounder punch and used it to create the edge at the top of the invite … and for a short while had her boyfriend convinced she had used the corner rounder punch to create the scalloped circle around “Party Time” … until he noticed the scallop circle punch !! LOL!!
My apologies for the below photo, it’s a bit blurry. I had to share though how Brie used the All Year Fun stamp set on the bottom inside of the invites … very clever!
Well done, Brie, it was a great achievement to make all these invitations … and it was Brie’s first time at cardmaking!
