Shower Invitations

My cousin is getting married this summer and my mother is hosting one of the showers. The bride's colours are apple green, white and silver. I agreed to make the invitations - my cousins would be upset since I've done all of them to date. Here are two samples I've made for my mother to pick from. I made a couple others but wasn't happy with them so they won't be posted. Both options are very simple since I will have to make about 70 of them. Each invitation is created as a postcard with the details printed directly on the back.


Stamps: SU - All Year Cheer, Year After Year, Wonderful Words

Paper: Apple Green, White

Ink: Versamark

Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Labels 2, Divine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder
