Waltzingmouse Blog Party - LOVE

The 17th of the month and that always means it's time for a Waltzingmouse Blog Party.  This month's theme is LOVE, a very easy theme when you realize Waltzingmouse has many, many stamp sets which cover any kind of Love you can think of.  How about a wedding?   My son Andy is getting married in April.  I am giving a bridal shower for his fiance, Ashley in February.  I recently made 30 invitations for the shower...not an easy task when the bride-to-be requested a "simple" invitation.  I showed her my idea of a simple invite and three samples later, finally came up with one that she agreed was "simple" enough!

This is the invitation she finally decided on:



My blog party card is the matching card I have made for her shower gift.  
Nearly a duplicate of the invitation, just a sentiment more appropriate for a shower gift.  I used a Fiskars border punch to cut the top of the card and a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the hearts onto the light lavender layer.  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Big Day Additions.  I love the elegant font and the sentiment itself is something I truly wish for my son and new daughter-in-law.  The cameo is from Waltzingmouse  Cameo Creations.  I am making a wedding book for Ashley and the polka dot paper is one of the digital papers I have chosen to use with her book so everything will coordinate nicely.  Lavender used to be one of my favorite colors, but I am pretty sure that by the time the wedding and wedding book is over, I won't be using purple for quite some time.  Make sure to follow this link to the party over on the Waltzingmouse blog where you will see a whole lot of "LOVE" using Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Such a beautiful card, and those invitations are just perfect. How nice that you are coordinating everything, so the book will be perfect. I can see why you will be tired of purple after a while. But, that shade is one of my favorite colors, so I can see why you picked it.

What a lovely invitation! love the purple and black and the pretty cameo with the pearls!

Ashley is getting a wonderful MIL! Hope she knows how lucky she is. The invitatons are stunning and though the design may be simple, there is so much beautiful detail work on each one. And you made 30--wow!! Love the matching card and lovely sentiment in that gorgeous font. Congratulations to the happy couple! I'm sure everything about their wedding will be fabulous.

I love the bridal shower invite and your coordinating card is just fabulous. I love the sentiment and that font is just so elegant - beautiful!

You are like a Mother-in-law dream, LOL! What GORGEOUS invitations! I love the heart embossing with the elegant top border. The cameo is both sweet and stunning. How gorgeous is that sentiment with it?! AMAZING job...and a job WELL done! (although I am sure you are focusing more on the "done" part :))

Purple is my favorite color so I'm all over this card.

Cammie said...

This doesn't look too simple to me; however, it is very elegant. Your future daughter-in-law is so fortunate to have your talent creating such beauties for her.

What a great card, Cathy. I love the pearl necklace you gave this cameo. Such a great creative idea.

Oh wow Cathy, what a lucky girl to have you making these beauties for her - that cameo stamp is beautifully framed and the sentiment looks great with the embossed texture!!! Stunning! Thank you so much for playing along with the first WMS waltz of 2013!
