So, now that I've gotten that announcement done, I wanted to share the shower invitation I made for a shower my friend, Sylvia, and I are having next month.
I blocked the address to protect out of consideration to my friend
The rose was embossed with gold embossing powder, then water-colored. I added a tiny bow, a crystal on the rose, and a "dew-drop" of Diamond Glaze on the leaf. I used a border punch along the bottom edge, so the pink shimmer paper shows through. The invitation itself was composed on my computer, then I printed it onto ivory cardstock, and cut it to size. It scanned poorly, so it looks like brownish splotches are on the paper, but they're not. It's just ivory cardstock. It's 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch square, with no fold-over, just a single panel, layered. Her bridal party loved it so much they asked me to make their shower invitations for them! Of course, I will. How can I say no?!
