I know I posted the invites for Karen's Bridal shower... So I figured I'd share a little of the decor I made for it as well!!! I was pressed for time last week so I was only able to make a banner with beautiful, large paper rosettes. I went with the standard "bridal Shower" colors (Pink, Teal, and White) and went to work. I cut the banner using my Cricut Princess Party Cartridge, doubling up with an added layer for support. The font is from the Type Candy Cartridge, also using the shadow layer. I then cut several small circles using the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes Cartridge, and added three circles to each letter. I added some small, adhesive gems for some pizazz, and voila!!!! A beautiful banner indeed :-)
Please excuse the photos as the lighting was very poor :-( I try to capture all my projects in natural sunlight but was in too much of a hurry to make it happen!!!
And a side view....
I also decided to add large paper rosettes to the banner to separate the words. They are very similar to making the smaller ones (check out my previous post here), only adding length and width to get them the correct size. I believe I cut these at 3 and 1/4 to get an overall width of 6.5 once completed. The smaller rosette made from the teal paper was cut at 1 and 3/4 to get an overall width of 3.5. For the big one, I had to cut four 12 inch strips and glue them together. I decided on using my hot glue gun for this project to speed things up a bit. I used my Martha Stewart large circle cutter for the outside circles, then trimmed them with "funny cut" scissors (that's what I call them anyways!!!) to make it look wavy. I added a stamped image in the middle for the final touch and put them between the lettering. What do you think!?!?
Here are some side views so you can take a peek at the depth of them.
As usual gang, thanks for stopping in and have a LUCKY day!!!!!!!!
