I made the bride-to-be's personal card for the shower, very similar to the one I made my mom for her bday. But I added on the middle strip, I used the same cardstock (naturals ivory) and embossed it. Instead of coloring the middle strip, I simply put 2way glue on one flower and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I stamped the greeting in Always Artichoke, and the matching saying inside the card. I also tied the ribbon the other way and used the wide organdy. (sorry for the fuzzy photo -- I'm still learning my photo editing program!)
I am also into decorating the envelopes now, too! All I did here was use pieces from a scrappin kit and grosgrain ribbon. I think it really makes the card more of a gift when you "pretty-up" the envelope, too!
