Bridal Shower Invitations...

Hi everyone...

I made these little beauties for my Best friends soon to be daughter-in-law's bridal shower.


This was a little tricky for me but I managed to figure out a way to print with my printer and cut with my cutting machine using an .svg file I found here at SVG Place.  This is a beautiful file by Loni Harris.  I used the dressform.svg file and resized to fit the information.  I embossed the bodice with the Victorian embossing folder. I wrapped tulle (a 10" circle folded in half) and tied around the waste with ribbon.  I used all the colors of the wedding.

Hugs,

Pin It!

    1. First I cut out 2 dresses side by side on 8.5x11 card stock for a template and then I used Word to line up the invitation information. I printed it out and then layered the template over it to see if it centered. Then I continues to fiddle with it until it would line up where I wanted it. Took some time but eventually got it centered for both dresses. Print it out on card stock and then run it through the cutting machine. I hope this makes sense. You can email me at myneed2craft@gmail.com if you have more questions. :)

  17. I am trying this out. It is lovely! My question is.....what does the back look like? My tulle wraps around front but in crack there is an open "v". Is that correct?
