Memorable Moments Anniversary Invitation

Hey Stampers,

How are we this morning !?! I am having another great day so far ! Its a bit stressful being so busy with everything, like my Inky Fingers Club and getting all my swaps ready for Convention, BUT it is also super fun !! I am loving all of the stuff I am creating and I can't wait to share it with YOU !! But remember, if you want to see the fab stuff I have for the Inky Fingers, you have to sign up for the Summer Session !! Yay !!

The card I am showing you today is one of the BIG BUNCH of invitations I made for a 25th Wedding Anniversary. The lady wanted Teal and Silver for her colors, so I thought the new Bermuda Bay paired with a lot of Whisper White, Brushed Silver and Silver Glimmer Paper would be just FABULOUS ! I wanted it to be elegant but fun, and I thought the Memorable Moments set would be a great one to match with some hearts ! Take a look at what I came up with !!


Isn't that just stunning !?! Love all the BLING that the Glimmer Paper adds too ! So first I had to break out my Stamp-a-ma-jig so I could get my 25 to look just perfect. I stamped the numbers on some Whisper White and then punched it out with the Full Heart Punch. I then layered it onto the scalloped heart from the Hearts A Flutter Framelits that I cut out with Brushed Silver cardstock. I also stamped the "anniversary", also from Memorable Moments, in Bermuda Bay ink and used my Bitty Banner Framelits to cut that out. I laid all my stamp pieces to one side while I got the rest of my pieces ready.

My little "glammed up"stripe piece is a 1" x 5" piece of Brushed Silver cardstock with a 3/4" x 5" piece of Silver Glimmer Paper layered on top. I used a piece of Bermuda Bay that I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch to layer under it for another pop of the gorgeous teal color. The twine I used is non Su (gasp !!). Its from The Twinery and the color is Ocean. I thought it was a great match for the Bermuda Bay ! 

My layer of Whisper White measures 3-3/4" x 5" and I embossed the left edge with the Adorning Accents embossing folder with the tiny hearts. CUTE ! I then layered this onto a piece of Bermuda Bay measuring 4" x 5-1/4" and adhered it to my Whisper White card base with some Dimensionals. I am so pleased with the final product !! Just lovely. I also stamped a heart from the retired I {Heart} Hearts set in Bermuda Bay onto the envelope. I just love adding a touch of something special to the envelope too !!

Thats my card for today !! I love them. It wasn't SO fun making a HUGE PILE of them towards the end, but the lady they were for was SO excited for them and she loved them too !! Remember to look into the Inky Fingers Club and sign up !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
