A "Shower" of Wishes

This was a shower invite I just did for a friend of mine.  While the design was a surprise to her, the idea came simply, and I think they look fantastic!  Elegant design + beautiful elements = 65 cards in a cinch!  I cut the vanilla paper a 1/4" smaller on all four sides, rounded all the corners and punched the top corners with a fancy punch (this one is a non-Stampin' Up! punch but you can use any decorative corner punch you like).  Though the blue cardstock color is retired, the same look can be achieved with any subtle color tones.  MDS made laying out the text easy and I love how the name is highlighted in a larger and script font.  The umbrella punch (non-SU) is a fun accent too, popped up with a dimensional on the back.

I hope you enjoyed this look and can use it as an inspiration for laying out your next project!
Happy Stamping,

Paper: Ballet Blue, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery
Extras: Non-SU umbrella punch, Non-SU corner punch
