Invitation Order
I was asked if I could create some wedding shower invitations - 75 of them to be exact! *whew* Of course I said "sure"! This is what I came up with - I am now waiting on my paper order from SU! so I can finish making these babies! I decided that simple and elegant was the way I wanted to go - especially since I am having to make so many. I get lots of orders for cards, but never for that many at once! hee hee Happy Harmony was the perfect set for this order! I used my Blush Blossom and Mellow Moss markers for the flowers, Blush Blossom for the base and stamped it with linen (you can't really see it in the photo) then I ran the vanilla cardstock thru my cuttlebug and sponged Blush Blossom on the swirls. I distressed the edges of the Vanilla and sponged a little close to cocoa on the edges. The Scallop Circle is up on dimensionals - added a little cindy ribbon to polish it off! It turned out just like I envisioned it - it was so easy (which was the gameplan) but it looks super elegant! Now I need an assembly line LOL :)

My blog candy will be running until Friday night - so if you don't have your name in yet you still have plenty of time - just leave me a comment on the blog candy post below!

Here are a few of my blogging friends that are offering up blog candy too - you might as well double or triple your chances! *wink*

I also would like to give a big Texas HOWDY to my friend Beth (freckled fun)- she made my day yesterday (she knows why lol) - you are simply hilarious - love your emails!

You have certainly outdid yourself this time...this card is amazing!

Wow! That's so beautiful. I can't believe you're going to make 75 of them. (I hate repetition.) But I'm sure everyone who opens them will be amazed! I can't wait to CASE this when my SAB stamps arrive...

Kendra who ever you are making them for is super lucky!!! They are stunning, your art work constantly blows my mind!!!

Beautiful card, Kendra, I'm sure the bride loved it!

OMG! Kendra, I just have to ask you, you've inspired me to case your layout for my daughter's 1st communion invitation. I've been wanting to use my gold cs & cross stamp set, but haven't been inspired until I saw your card this morning. If you have any suggestions, I'd be all ears & eyes.

Very beautiful! Great card. You are right it is very elegant. I have had people ask me to make cards but I never know what to charge. I'd like to talk to you about it. You can vist my blog and or email me if you feel comfortable discussing it. Hope your week has been great.

This is a great idea. Simple yet very very elegant! I wish I would have thought of that when I was trying to find designs for a baby shower. Stunning :D

Love this card - very soft and elegant! You just can't go wrong with the cuttlebug, right? :)

HI! I tried to email you but I couldn't find your email link on your page. I am hosting a baby shower and wanted to CASE your card for the invites. They wouldn't be exact but I just wanted to contact you before hand. I am not selling them, just giving them out. Email me or leave a note on my blog if that is okay with you. Thanks! --- Amy in Houston
