Mr & Mrs, Our daughter is getting married!

There is going to be a new Mr. & Mrs!  Next month our youngest daughter is getting married!  For those who follow Explore.Dream.Discover. you have been seeing some of the paper crafting we've been doing in preparation for the big day!  Next up is a wedding shower for the couple and this is the invite for the upcoming event!
Here is a close look at the waistband!  I LOVE how this detail looks, the lace trim and silk ribbon lay the perfect foundation for the Want2Scrap adhesive teardrop gems and mini purple pearls.  Actual picture of lace trim and silk ribbon below!

The "Mr & Mrs" image is stamped with VersFine Onyx Black ink.  I cut the image using my SU oval punch and shaded the edging with Memento Plum ink. You can find JustRite's Ever After Antiques Labels One HERE
We made fifty of these babies!  Don't they look pretty?  What a great feeling when they were all completed!  I ordered the precut wedding dresses from an Etsy store!  However, to resemble the actual dress I cut the straight neck line into the above style and scalloped the dress hem.   
A ticket corner punch was used on the purple cardstock panel. The oval stamped piece was adhered using ThermOWeb foam dimensionals located HERE.  The wedding dress is attached this way too.
Here is a great look at the looped trim!  It comes in four colors and I adhered mine to the wedding dresses using 1/8" ScorTape.  I left just a tiny bit on each side to tuck around to the underside of the wedding dress.  Find the trim HERE at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
Here is a look at all the wonderful colors the 1/8" silk ribbon comes in!  Of course you know I already used the beautiful purple as a bow on the dress waistband!  Silk ribbon found HERE. Thank you for indulging this Momma as I continue creating for this most special day!  Take care!
