The Everything ABC's Blog Hop - Letter C

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their C element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Shelly at Just One Piece then you're on the right track!

So between visiting family out of town and being sick, I sadly missed the A and B of this...but I am so ready to jump on this blog hop and have an extra motivation to craft (and blog about it of course!) I hope you enjoy my creations!

I had a custom order for invitations and thank you cards for a sweet girl's 5th birthday party. They were having a sophisticated tea and dress up party. Of course I squealed in delight and my creative juices started flowing. I used our Cricut Artiste Cartridge and a stamp set from our Cricut Art Philosophy set to create the invitations.

Isn't that adorable?! 
Materials for the front:
Card is colonial white
La Bella Vie paper pack (now retired)
Tan ribbon from Pear and Partridge card workshop
Dress cut from pg 41 of the Artiste cartridge - Z1790
Stamp set from the Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle - Z1686
7mm Pearl bling non-CTMH
Pink ribbon is non-CTMH

Here is the inside of the card. Personal information blurred out of course.
The pink background page is also from the La Bella Vie paper
Teapot cut from La Bella Vie mauve using a non-CTMH cricut cartridge
Information is printed on white vellum
Ribbon is non-CTMH

And here is the thank you card.

Embellished with Bitty Sparkles - Z1263
Black tulle ribbon is non-CTMH (although we have some! it was thicker than I was looking for)
