Bridal Shower Card for Paige
Hello Paper Crafters!! Let me show you how to create a simple yet elegant bridal shower card, like I did for Paige. I have known her since she was 18 months old and I am good friends with her mother, who just so happens to be my Stampin’ Up! mum!! There is a core 5 of us who we refer to as “Playgroup”. In 1997 I joined an early childhood PTA in Plano, TX. I was looking for a group of like-minded moms who had children the same ages as mine and who I had something in common with. Turns out we all love doing crafts. We met weekly, at a nearby park or at one of our homes, for fellowship and for social interaction for our children. Paige is the first one in this group to get married and I couldn’t be happier for her!!
Bundle of Love and Sunshine Wishes
Paige is very special to me and I wanted to make a very special Bridal Shower card for her. I used an elegant color palette, vanilla and gold, and the simple images of hearts, bows and the word “love”. The Bundle of Love DSP pairs well with the Sunshine Wishes Framelits. Sometimes a card doesn’t need to be over the top or have a fancy fold or lots of embellishments to be special. Sometimes a card can use a few simple elements and make a very elegant statement. I just love how this card turned out. What do you think? Tell me in the comments section below.
