Bridal Invitations

My nephew is getting married in August and his sister is hosting his fiance's bridal shower.  She sent out an email letting us Aunts know about the shower.  I asked if there was anything I could do since I live so far away and won't be able to attend.  She gladly let me make the invitations.  First, I had to come  up with an idea...hummm.  I looked at some of my previous cards and a few creative magazines and came up with an idea.
I used watercolor paper to draw a background.
Once I finished the background I scanned it and added the hanger image and text and invitation information. 

I found an old book coated them with metallic paint.
Drew the bridal dress design and and turned on some good music and cut out the designs.
Once I printed them it was time to cut and score them.
I glued the dress on and ta da.... finished!
