Betsy's Blossom Shower invitation

 
Well, I can see, I need some better lighting.  This Stampin' Up! wedding shower invitation, starts with a layer of  Not Quite Navy and then a layer of Eggplant Envy cardstock.   
I created the shower wording in MS word and loaded my Whisper White Cardstock right into the printer for printing (2 to a page).  


The invitation was trimmed to size and then stamped with 
Stampin' Up! Betsy's Blossom stamp set 
This is one of my favorite new stamp sets.  You'll see more ideas using this set.  
You can't go wrong purchasing this set it has many uses.

The light blue flower came from a second and third stamping of the large Night of Navy flower.  When you create your own invitations, you have everything you need to continue the decorating right onto the envelopes.  Don't you feel special when you get mail in a decorated envelope?

What do you think? 
 I liked it, but it could be better!  Invitations were finished just ahead of schedule, so I had time to make these wedding shower invitations more special.


Better?  Did you notice the difference?
These shower invitations were for my niece, so the added steps were worth it.  I stamped a few extra big blue flowers and punched them out with our Scalloped Circle punches, then layered them on.  I LOVED the dimensional look of the flower.  A pearl center made it complete!

 Notice anything about THIS flower? Look at the largest scalloped circle layer.  It's not a clear clean crisp stamp is it?  Do you know why?  I did NOT use Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock on that layer.  I thought I'd use some plain paper instead of cardstock for a layer or two.  
This trial proved what I already knew... 
Stamp on our Whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock for the best clean, clear, image.

I hope you enjoyed this design.
