Dee's Bugaboo Boutique Word Art


Last weekend my crafty friend Sherry and I spent an evening designing and making house warming invitations for her daughter and room mate.  I took a picture of Sherry as we started out with our project.  I took pictures of the invitations too but decided not to post the actual invitation because it has more information than I think should go on the internet so I'm posting pictures of the cards I made that were inspired by the invitations.


This card uses almost the same colors as the invitations and same layout except the invitations were post cards so they were only one layer, no black matting.


I noticed after printing and trimming this sentiment it was slightly off center and I wanted to use it so this is before I added the die cut button to match the patterned paper.  You might not have noticed had I not said anything...  


Here are the papers we used for the invitation.  As we were making the original invitations I was thinking this would be a great way to use up some of my patterned paper scraps.


My last card is also inspired by the invitations we made.  
The beautiful word art is by Dee's Bugaboo Boutique and they were all  free.
