Bridal Shower Card

I woke up Saturday morning with eyes as big as silver dollars.  I remembered I needed to make a shower card for my daughter-in-law to be and the shower was in a few hours!  I had totally forgot I about the card.  

I went to SplitCoastStampers and found this one done by Susie B.  Once again I didn't have all of the same materials as she did but I went with what I had and it worked out just fine.  From the Cuttlebug embossing folder to the flower on the waistline.  My card is a bit different in other ways too.  I added the scalloped oval with the words done on my computer.  I added the layers on the inside of the card but the original one doesn't have any layers.  I added layers because I had found some nice words for the inside and I needed it printed out on the computer and since the card was already made I had to print on a piece of card stock and cut some layers and get it put inside the card.   The layers did show through the scalloped lace trim at the bottom of the dress but it did work out anyway.

I made the front of this card 3 times.  When it was time to put it through the embossing folder I would look at it and think about how to do it and then I would end up doing the embossing backwards!  The third time was a charm!!! I want to make another one so I can have it for a sample. It's such a sweet shower card.  It would also make a great wedding card but it does look more like a shower card. 

Anyway, the shower was a lot of fun and the candies I made the other day went over well. You can see those by clicking here

I have another shower to go to on the 3rd.  Her side of the family is putting it on and I need another card. SO I am going to be making that card this week so I don't have to wake up and fly down to my workroom to create.  I don't mind being in here but it's usually after a few cups of coffee!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
