Create Your Own Sentiment

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share some FUN cards with you.
Today's customized cards are not quite all my ideas. Remember I was asked to create Wedding Party Invites? You can see my previous posts here and here, if you miss reading them.

The following two cards were meant to be given to the groom's siblings. When I first got the assignment, I was not sure how to go about it. Honestly, I was stumped! 😟

First, I printed out the sentiment on my printer and then added stenciling and die cut the piece with Stitched Rectangles. In the end, I made them work!😂
Open bar

 A quick trip to my local Michael's also helped...a lot!
 Those drinks you see on the cards are stickers!

 I totally
utilized the Grid Stencil in my 2nd card!

Shop Simon Says Stamp here

What...? Grid Stencil...where?

 I used just one tiny square from the Grid Stencil for the rainbow check list/marks!
They are perfect for this purpose. AND when I tilt the grid stencil, I can follow the angle and made the check marks perfectly--score! I also used Halftone Stencil for the background on card stock. It goes with the bubble theme, right?

I highly encourage you to look at your supplies before you rush to do any "impulsive purchases". We have never experienced that before, right?
I almost thought I HAVE TO get drink/party-themed and checklist types of stamps FAST.
Due to my impatience (also being too lazy to order), I manged to find something and went with it. 😛

One thing I found out is that I still do not have ANY types of stamps associated with drinking, wine-tasting... Maybe that is a good thing?

 If you feel like doing some impulsive shopping over Simon Says Stamp, don't forget to use the code "Cheery" to get $5 off! 

Thanks for stopping by!
