My future sister-in-law's wedding shower is this Saturday. Here is the card that will accompany the gift. (click on image to enlarge it)
I used the Featured Stamper Challenge as a launching pad since I had NOT A CLUE of where to start for a shower card. It has been YEARS since I have been to a wedding shower. (and I have not been to many since I have never lived near friends that were getting married). This week's featured Stamper is Kendra Giles. It is funny because I just found her blog last week and have subscribed to it. There are many wonderful cards in her gallery to choose from, but here is the card I have decided to CASE (copy and share everything). Here is the card on her blog with a little more info.
--I do not have any embossing folders for my "Big Shot" so I embossed white on white with the floral stamp.
--Instead of Happy Harmony for the sentiment and main image, I used Blossoms Abound and Fancy Flexible Phrases.
--I do not have any scalloped punches either, so after trying decorative scissors a few times-I decided on the ticket punched corners instead.
--I chose not to use white card since cardstock often warps when it is heat embossed and it looked quite unattractive mounted on white.
--I also added the lavender organdy ribbon (I also used this on the bride's invitations) I tried just the black grosgrain and just the organdy, to me, the combination looked the best and most appropriate for the occasion.
