Bridal shower invite

Hi All, a few of you asked about the invites I made with my daughter for her friend.  The set in the picture above is the invite along with the tiny corset insert which she will put inside the envelope with the brides lingerie sizes. The die cuts ( dress, corset and words Bridal Shower) were all cut on my Zing die cutting machine with MTC software.  We embossed the dress and corset.  The (dress Beautiful Gown) and (corset Ooh la la ) are cut files from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  Lindsay offers these files in a printable form also so if you don't have a die cut machine these are easy shapes to print and cut by hand, I just would not recommend doing 50 of them, lol!  The digital damask print paper is from Cupcake Cuties.  We dotted the "i" in Bridal with a tiny black rhinestone, the same I used to trim the corset with.  I could not get a good shot but the waistline on the dress has the little red gel rhinestones from Joanne's.
So are you wondering what I did with the negative cut on the dress?  I purposely cut them out of the front of a card so I could re use my scraps and make some quick note cards, I guess they would make cute matching thank you's too, I just thought of that, lol.  I just inserted a piece of the damask behind the front and embossed the white card front, you can see it below.
Well, that's it, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  4. The girls wanted a wedding dress and damask, they saw it elsewhere, that is just my take on it, so I can't take full credit. ~Diane

  5. SO creative! LOL, my corset with sizes listed wouldn't fit in the envelope! enJOYed the thought anyway.

  6. Oh I love the elegance of black and white. Your cards are beautiful. The little insert corset is very smart. The tiny black rhinestone is perfect. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

  7. Beautiful sets Diane, the black and white palette is very elegant enhanced by the beautiful gems you have added. Love the cards made from the negative cut out, a a bulbous idea.

  9. Diane I LOVE them! The elegance of the black and white with the damask is amazing! But, have you gone completely mad? Hand placing each of those rhinestones on 50 INVITATIONS? You must have the patience of a saint!!!
