Who says that footprints are only for baby projects?! Thinking outside the box is what led to these wedding invitations!
A long time friend of mine, whom I had lost touch with for a while, is getting married on the beach on Tybee Island, GA soon and I created these for her!
The base of the card is Crumb Cake. I then added a layer of Early Espresso and another layer of Crumb Cake. The focal point is a combination of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. I layered two pieces of the white and used my sponges to color them with Pool Party and Marina Mist. I used the foot prints from the mini catalog set called, “Baby Prints”. I added some of our natural hemp twine and some half shells that I picked up at my local craft store. To finish them off, I used crystal effects in small droplets and let them dry. I did this to give them a water splashed/droplet effect! The final touch required the use of the Color Spritzer tool and the Early Espresso marker. I spit little drops of color all over the invites.
Of course I had to create some coordinating Thank You Notes for her as a gift! I used the pre-cut / pre-scored notecards from the back of our big idea book and catalog.
I can’t wait until she gets to see them! I sent them priority mail on Friday and I am hoping that she got them yesterday or at the latest today…..especially because I am sharing them with the world and I don’t know if she has seen them yet!
…………….. Until tomorrow!
