Dinner Stars

Evening all!

I hope you all had a great weekend!?
The wedding was lovely! Unfortunately It rained, and rained, and rained, and rained! So we never got to go outside but that didn't ruin the atmosphere! It was truly lovely! So very romantic! The bride looked stunning :)

I'm not sure what they thought of the box as I don't think they got chance to see it before we left, but I hope it didn't get squashed amongst all the presents *eek*

Anyway... onto something new!
A while ago I posted pictures of the mountains of invitations I had been creating for my sister in law's wedding... I can't quite believe but it is now less then a month away!!

It's Hen Party time now, and I have organised a nice dinner evening and needed to send out some invitations for the event. I tried to keep it nice and simple, those invites took forever and I've still got the name cards, table plan and order of services to do ;)

So this is my design! As you can see really simple! I've pixelated the details, sorry about that! I've used my bigshot to create the stars that sit on the top and its just a process of matting and layering the black and red card. The stripes across the bottom are from a set of papers called Ladybug from My Grafico.

Here is the star design on the top of the invites. I had fun using my new machine, and I now have my spellbinders tan embossing mats so yay! As you can see from the picture on the left I can now do pretty embossing too!

Even though I mainly wanted the Big Shot for cutting circles, I know how silly of me! The stars are my favourite and most used die so far :)

So on the right is a picture of all of the invites, ready to be posted out in the morning. I am going to be so sad when my sister in law's wedding has come and gone. Creating all of the stationary has brought back all the lovely memories of creating mine with my mum. Can't believe it's 4 years this year!

Anyway that's enough from me and my memories for one evening! Leaves me to give you the card details!
