Red Hats and a Wedding Card

Recently, my husband's cousin got hitched! It was a beautiful wedding, but what I'm sharing here is from the shower. All guests at this wedding shower got to choose a hat from Grandma's collection to wear for the festivities.

For the lovely couple, I made this wedding card, for which I've seen inspiration around the web. It's simple, using Stampin' Up!'s Whisper White card stock, cut into small rectangles with the corners rounded off. I used a texturz impressions plate to make the subtle pattern, and then used Basic Jewels - Pearls as accents. A little Real Red grosgrain ribbon "ties" it all together.

Card stock is Basic Black, Real Red and Brushed Silver. A tip when using the silver paper...it's kind of slick, so use a strong adhesive, like Stampin' Up!'s sticky strip, so the layers don't peel apart. (This is a lesson learned while making about 10 prototypes for my sister's wedding invitations...we used sticky strip in the end so that no one's invitation arrived in pieces!).

I'll show that wedding invitation after the wedding...which is is 13 days!

Thanks for stopping by,
