Creative Outlet

I always love having an outlet for my creative energy. My mom is throwing a bridal shower for our dear friend Cody, so she asked me to design and make the invitations. An excuse to dig into my paper stash and use my new big scalloped circle punch? Count me in! Cody is quite the gourmet foodie and wanted to have a kitchen shower, so we're asking each guest to bring a favorite recipe (hence the matching recipe card included with the invite), along with a fun kitchen gadget or gourmet food items. It should be tons of fun!

This is the invitation set...invite card, recipe card and paper wrap to hold it all together.

This is how it looks when you pull it out of the envelope. The type in the circle is the wedding date and bride & groom's names. The recipe card is tucked in the back.

The invitation.

Thanks for taking a peek! :-)
