A possible invite.....

At my cook book stamp camp last Friday some of the girls and I got to talking about wedding shower invitations. I suggested maybe a pocket wheels started to spin and while watching the Super Bowl last night this came to me! (Go Giants!!! Don't get me wrong...we are true Steeler fans around here but I wanted to see New York win last night!) I got up at five this morning to get it out of my head. Sometimes when I get an idea floating around in there it just wants out! This was the case with this card. Maybe to all of you it isn't really what you would have in mind but I wanted to see it executed on paper, so to speak. I asked what the wedding colors were and a swatch of fabric was presented....Groovy Guava to a T! I don't think there would have been a better match. I asked about accent colors....chocolate chip! Girls....could this be any more "up my alley?" I love chocolate chip! It goes with everything! (in my opinion....hehehe!)

So here is what I "banged" out this morning for all of you:

For mass producing, 5/8 inch chocolate chip grosgraine ribbon would be perfect but low and behold....I went to my ribbon stash and to my disappointment....I didn't have enough of that to even do this card. I told you before I luv the chip....I will have to order some on my next order, if that is all I order. (yeah, right!) lol!

I don't know if you can really get a feel for the glitter on this card but in real life it sparkles with just enough bling to satisfy a girl's need for dazzling diamonds!

Here is the insert pulled out. I stamped off the groovy guava swirl on the bottom to lighten it a tad. You could do any number of things with this insert. You could hand write the information on the insert or computer generate it with the Write Me a Memory Journaling Font CD, Vol.2. Anyone of you that have been to any of my "invite" parties knows how I hate to hand write all that for me, hands down, it would be the Journaling CD.

Leave me a comment below to let me know what you think of this pocket creation. Will another came to me today???? If it does...You'll be the first to know!

Love the colors!! I think peach and brown shades look great together. I Think the card design would make an elegant invitation.
