Sparkly Party Invites

A friend asked me to make some invites to her pre-wedding party.  Her wedding is abroad and she wanted to have a get together that friends and family could come to.

Her only request was to use the nearest colour to plum I could find.  After sending her images of a few papers, she settled on these two burgundy designs from Papermania by Claire Curd (her signature Big One range).  I used A6 card stock.




I picked up the gems and peel-off lettering a few days earlier in a clearance bin at WH Smiths.





 As the design was fairly simple, it should have taken 1-2 hours for 28 cards.  Darling wasn't having it, so I had to sit on the strip of floor between my bed and my wardrobe, whilst she threw things at me.

I ended up doing the cards in stages whenever I could over two days:









I gave them to her today and she was really happy with the result thankfully.
