Our Minnesota weather has been so mild thus far, that I have not spent much time blogging. I have done a bit of card making in my craft room though on those days when the ice froze the walkways and my body went into hibernation mode.

I have two lovely nieces getting married in 2012. One is in May, and the other in July. They are sisters. I have the honor of addressing the invitations. I am also hosting a Bridal Shower for each niece. I just finished making the invitations for the first bride's shower, to be held a month from now!

This is a photo of my Cricut work space area.......

I used Sei ' white elegance' cardstock in pearl strand for the background of the dresses. I used Sei white elegance in Tiara, for the dress layer on some of the cards, and used 'doodlebug design', lily white serenade cardstock for some of the other dress layers on cards. I also utilized some of the white textured design scraps I had for the dress layer on a few cards. So, as you can see, each of the cards is different in more ways than one! The dress was bonded onto a 5-1/2 X 4-1/2 inch rectangle of assorted plain colored cardstock. (Pink, green, turquiose, aqua...) The curly frame is from Cricut, Formal Occasion cartridge.I cut it in 4-3/4 inch size, using assorted plain colors, and a K & Company paper (teal blue swiss dot). The "You're Invited" is cut from my daughter's Cricut cartridge, "Sophisticated". I found the 2 inch size worked best on the plain colored cardstock. The back (reverse side) was left plain so that I could add the information on text weight ivory paper. I mailed the invites in plain ivory or white envelopes. I must say, my niece was pleased! I can't wait for the fun we will have at her shower!
