I have been asked to be the MOH at my best friends wedding. I am making the cards for her bridal shower and have a few different options. Her colors are burlap, grey, silver, and she wants to have yellow gerber daisies and sunflowers. Here are the different options of cards and I hope to hear some great feedback and/or advice. I used two different shapes for the actual card; just a standard 5.25x5.25 square that came preloaded on my EXPRESSION 2 and then I used the TIE THE KNOT cartridge under the card tab & used the favor box plain card. The gown is with the TIE THE KNOT cartridge as well using 3 different layers and using 3D foam for the top layer to give it a bigger effect.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Option 1: ivory square card at 5.25 x 5.25 that i colored with a silver pen and a rounded edge square that is half an inch smaller on top. The back layer of the gown is a mat grey and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top. I added a translucent ivory ribbon and a white flower on top with some rhinestones added.
Option 2: ivory square card at 5.25 x 5.25 and a rounded edge square that is half an inch smaller on top in a damask print. The back layer of the gown is a mat grey and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top. I added a grey/silver ribbon and pearls on the gown with a rhinestone flower added to the side.
Option 3: ivory square card at 5.25 x 5.25 and two rounded edge squares that are half an inch smaller on top - one that is grey and one that is translucent with white hearts. The back layer of the gown is a mat tan and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top. I added a translucent ivory ribbon and an ivory flower on top with some rhinestones added around the edges.
Option 4: grey square card at 5.25 x 5.25 and a rounded edge square that is half an inch smaller on top in a semi translucent glittery fabric type paper. The back layer of the gown is a mat grey and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top. I added a translucent grey ribbon and a grey bow on top with some rhinestones added around to the belt.
Option 5: ivory card at 4.5 x 6.25 with a half inch smaller top sheet in a semi translucent white stripe. The back layer of the gown is a mat tan and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top and sticker on the bow. I added a translucent white ribbon with a grey ribbon and rhinestones on the sides.
Option 6: white card at 4.5 x 6.25 with a half inch smaller top sheet in an ivory color. The back layer of the gown is a mat tan and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top and pearls on the ribbon. This is a lot more basic and just has some rhinestones around the edge.
Option 7: white card at 4.5 x 6.25 with two half inch smaller top sheets - one in grey and one in a semi translucent grey damask on top. The back layer of the gown is a mat grey and the middle layer is a pearly white with a glitter top and sticker on the bow. This one is again very simple with pearls on the edges.
Option 8: grey card at 4.5 x 6.25 with a half inch smaller top sheet in a semi translucent white stripe.
