Bridal Shower Invitation

Well, it is now January and many people are thinking ahead for the weddings which are to come during the next 11 months. I remember planning our wedding months ahead. This idea I am posting today is for a beautiful Bridal Shower Invitation. Very quick and easy to make. Remember think outside of the box to expand this idea. You can make them in a variety of sizes, papers, embleshments, chalks. The possibilities are endless. When my daughter  becomes a bride, we will create everything from our Cricut Expression Machine for her special day.

Items Needed;

Serenade Cartridge, Plant 1 3/4 inch

Your choice of Cardstock, 2 colors

Decorative Corner Rounder

Small Piece of Printed Paper

Clear Liquid Glue

Glitter of Your Choice

Chalks, Cotton Balls

Cricut Blade Settings; Speed and Pressure Med, Blade 5

What you want you want to do is cut a piece of light colored cardstock to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2. This is the base for the invitation. Cut an 8 inch long by 1 inch wide strip of printed paper. Alright, place the base of the invitation into the Cricut Cutting Machine, move the cutting blade to the place on the paper where you want the image to cut (when choosing the image make sure to press the landscape button, it makes the image cut vertically).

Cut the same image you  choose on the second color of cardstock. Brush clear glue on the image and sprinkle with glitter. Let this dry for at least 30 minutes before placing on base  invitation. Glue the printed paper strip onto the invitation.

On your computer type of the wording you would like to put on the invitation. Use a thicker piece of paper or just cardstock in a lighter color to print it on. Cut the paper of the wording down to 3.75 inches wide by 5 inches long. Use chalks with a cotton ball to lightly add color to the paper. Use colors that match the papers you are using.

Enjoy and have fun with this.
