Simple Mariposa

For my sister's wedding invitations we wanted quick, simple yet classy.....I hope you like what I came up with, and think it covers the requirements?!!

These are 5" square and although you can't see from the photo, the colour of the butterfly (made using my Craft Tonic punch,) is a deep plum, the same colour as the bridesmaids dresses. I printed onto hammered paper and mounted onto a panel of the deep plum card. There are 2 butterflies, one stuck down to the card, the other secured in the centre only, then the wings are raised for a 3D effect. 2 flat-backed pearls for the centre to finish.

I used the same font (French Script MT) for the inserts, printed again on hammered paper.

So, clean, simple but does what it needs to, and they were more than happy with them!

Thanks so much for popping in, please leave a comment if you feel you want to.
