Both the pink and cream cardstock are from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby. The iridescent gems also are from The Paper Studio.
I laid out the text in word and printed on cream ink jet paper (acid free) from Staples before cutting the layer to this invite on my Cricut E2. Using settings of blade 1, speed 1, pressure 2 and no multi cut worked best. I must have ripped 100 before figuring that one out, LOL. It was important to cut the top portion of the text with the butterfly shape upside-down to make sure it reads correctly once the invite is open.
The shimmer on the outside of the invite was creating by spritzing with "Sparkle" Psst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko. It works best to spritz from about 8 inches above your project. I laid as many out on my kitchen table as possible (kraft wrapping paper covered the table) and spritzed away!
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did! Everyone loved it and told me they saved it. But wait! I've got more. Stop back tomorrow to see the matching guest book!!
