Last week I was given quick notice that a friend needed 15 bridal shower invitations, pronto! To speed up the process, I typed up the invitation wording, printed it off onto cardstock and layered it into the inside of the invites. This helped my hostess friend because she didn't have to hand write anything for the invites. Next, I reached for my handy dandy JustRite Stampers stamps. I chose to use the Weddings Borders and Centers set, choosing to cut off the flowery portion of the center stamps. (Note: be sure to click on the photo again...the images shown at the first link are not the correct images, but when you zoom in you'll get the correct view of all the wedding images). To use the Borders and Centers stamps, I choose the wooden Harmony I Classic Circle Stamper to hold the rubber images. I was able to stamp my outside card sentiments in no time. I simply went to work mass production style and stamped off 15 sentiments onto scrap vanilla cardstock. I then reached for my Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circle Dies to cut out the circles. I added the embossing also to make the invitations have a little more formal detail. I then cut some patterned paper and adhered the layers to black scallop cut rectangles from Spellbinder's Nestabilities. I adhered these layers to my vanilla cardstock, added the round embellishements with pop dots and added some black satin ribbon for a finishing touch.
The great thing about the JustRite stamps is that they coordinate in size with the Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies. You're always able to find just the right size circle or other shape, because the stamps were designed to coordinate with the die shapes. I was so glad I was able to help a friend in need and just in the nick of time too.
