I mentioned yesterday I had an order from a wonderful customer in Phoenix, AZ. Natalie of TerraSense asked for two cards for a double bridal shower. She asked that they be larger than normal cards since there would be many people who would be signing them.
I decided on an 8”X8” size so that there would be lots of room to write, and picked up some MS paper that was 18”X18”, so I could fold the paper to the correct size.
Natalie told me a little about each bride. Bride #1 is getting married in wine country, Sonoma, California and her wedding colour is Burgundy. I found this awesome paper that reminded me of a sunset and I thought it was perfect.
I used the main image from SU’s “To Have and to Hold”. I added the wine glass stamp from the same set given the wedding’s vineyard theme.
For the inside, I used the Rock and Roll technique, using SU Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust, with the Fifth Ave Floral rose stamp. I stamped off to make the image a little lighter so people can write their message and it won’t be so distracting.
Bride # 2 is getting married in Oregon, on her horse ranch, and her colours are green and purple. I wanted this card to be fresh and bright, and the MS fern DP I found was perfect! Again the card base is MS 18”x18” paper, cut down to 8”x8”.
I wanted to have a different layout, to make each card unique.
I used the same main image, and in the Sonoma card I heat embossed with translucent embossing powder to give it a little something extra.
I used SU certainly celery ribbon, my favourite MS border punch, Nesties and some paper flowers and rhinestone brads.
I just have to finish making the envelopes, I’ll use the rest of the 18”by 18” paper and then I’m off to the post office to get these on their way to Phoenix!
I’m really happy with how they turned out, and I think they’ve almost turned into a mini album, which should be a very nice memento for the brides to keep.
Go check out Nat’s store TerraSense…I just ordered some of her organic lip balm and I can’t wait to get it in the mail!
Ciao for now,
