feilds of green

It seems like forever ago that I was working on these invitations and my spring subscription note cards.

Back then, I was dreaming of spring.  The sun was warm, things were budding and the weather was alluding to a wonderful season… since then, the temperatures have plummeted, we have seen April SNOW showers and most of the flowers are struggling to stay alive.  If you live in the Northeast section of the country… you know what I am talking about.  I talk (complain) about the weather a lot, I know, but I have serious issues with the spring that is racing away from us, as we are approaching May(!!!?!?!??!!!) with temps still in the 30-50 range.  Maybe I am just not used to being back in Rochester…

I had the pleasure of creating these spring inspired invitations for a bridal shower.  Being free to create pretty much whatever I felt like, with a color scheme of yellow and green, I was immediately drawn to thoughts and images of fresh grass.  I just happened to have some Paper Source clover card stock lying around, the pop of green was just what I was looking for.

I was more than thrilled to have another opportunity to create something using my silhouette cameo.

Here is how it all came together!

You have to read the story behind this design on Inspired Goodness, such an amazingly creative custom idea

Here is a DIY tutorial on how to make them from the Budget Savvy Bride.  Super easy and a great way to add some wow to your notes or invitations.

Some fantastic ideas to try:

  • Line your child’s Birthday invite with their own coloring pages
  • A Mother’s Day card with a picture of her holding you as a babe on the inner envelope flap
  • Use scraps of your favorite fabrics
  • Newspaper clippings of local happening or potentially historic events

Happy Creating!
