Bridal Shower Invite

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

This is a picture of the back of my FSIL’s Bridal Shower invitation. Initially, I was going to try to incorporate colors from the wedding (Ivory and Red). I liked my results (Ivory card, red flowery background, and palm tree incorporating the tropical theme), but Aunt Crafty wasn’t so fond and wanted something with a bit more color. I was ok with this because the red flowery background was time consuming to produce. Aunt Crafty and I decided to go with something a bit more simplistic. The purple and blue may not be quite “tropical” in feel, but we also produced one that was orange and pink. I am overall happy with the results, and I hope FSIL likes them, too!

Favor Boxes for my future SIL’s Bridal Shower

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

These boxes were created from a Cricut Template Рfrom the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more collection. I was able to add a finishing touch to the boxes to create something that I believe creates definition and uniqueness with Corel Draw and Sure Cuts A Lot 2 (SCAL2) by incorporating flower petals and the center of the flower. Aunt Crafty and I will be hosting and because Brother and FSIL are getting married on a cruise ship, we thought it would be fun to have a tropically themed bridal shower.
