TGIF crafty friend!  Time sure flies fast and it's the weekend already.  I want to share with you invitation samples I made for my niece who's turning 18 in a few months.  For now, her party's theme is "Alice in Wonderland" where she'll be asking the guests to come in red or black outfits.  And for her invitations, she likes a black and white color scheme, with some butterflies.

For my first batch of samples, I focused on using embossing folders and shimmer spray:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  @theoffice, The Paper Company, vellum
image/sentiment:  Verve, Bombshell, Studio G, Inkadinkado
ink:  Tsukineko
tools:  embossing folders (Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Tim Holtz), Spellbinders, EK Success corner rounder punch,  SU ticket corner punch, Martha Stewart edge and corner punch
embellishments:  ribbon, brads
misc.:  embossing powder (Ranger), Shimmer Spritz
adhesive:  Scotch, Zots, mounting tape

You can see each card in detail here.  Which one is your top choice?  I'd love to know.

Also if you're not busy, please check out all the projects I created last month.  They're all in here.

'Til next blog!
