DIY Die Cut Wedding Card by Sandee Shanabrough

Hello there!  Sandee Shanabrough here!
  I combined three gorgeous papers to create this wedding card!
The scripture stamp is from an ODBD set called Love Scriptures and is stamped on the Bright White Card Stock.  The base card is also made from the Bright White Card Stock.  I used a Spellbinders Oval to cut it out.  I also used Spellbinders A-2 Floral Ribbon Threader dies to cut out the layers from the Solid Tiffany Blue and Classic White Laid Card Stocks.  Using negative pieces of the Tiffany Blue Card Stock I punched three butterflies with a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch.  I added a pretty seam binding bow and tiny pearls to complete the card.
Thanks so much for looking!  Have a wonderful day!

Tiffany Tea Invitation by Jenny Gropp

Join us for a spot of tea as we celebrate the bride-to-be!
Jenny Gropp here today!

With wedding season fast approaching I thought I’d do up a little Bridal Tea Invitation to inspire! Paper and More has a beautiful color called Tiffany Blue, available in many different styles of coordinating products: yardstick, invites and envelopes. Here’s a link to all the Tiffany Blue products. I thought this color would be perfect for a bridal shower!

With the color collection named Tiffany Blue,  I added a little Tiffany Bag in the picture…  it’s a pretty good match! You can see the one invitation here. In the back, I used a coordinating envelope and added 80# Solid Bright White Cardstock to the flap and embossed just the flap using an embossing folder. This is an EASY touch to dress up an envelope!

Tea 2 WM I used the A2 Sierra Tiffany Blue Solid Pocket Card for this Bridal Tea Project. The invitation folder is #100 cardstock, so it feels very substantial and rich. I used 100# Classic White Cardstock to emboss the teapot die. The heavier weight paper gives you a beautiful impression when embossing with a thin die cut. I added a little strip of 81# Silver Metallic Text on the side of the embossed panel. With the color called Tiffany, I had to add a few Swarovski Crystals in the corner for a touch of bling!

Tea 1 WMI printed the invitation and the registry card on the 80# Solid Bright White Cardstock, using a soft grey ink color. A few little Swarovski Crystals to help dress it up. I wanted a touch more blue, so I added a layer to the registry card.

Tea 3 WMThe invitations all come scored and folded perfectly. This little indented pocket is called a Sierra Pocketfold, available in multiple sizes and colors. I added the additional layers of silver and white and the little tea cup die. The folded invite is an A2 size – 5.5″ x 4.25″ and the perfect size for a Shower Invitation.

Wedding Fan Favor by Sandee Shanabrough


Hello! Sandee Shanabrough here with an easy idea for your wedding, using the beautiful Solid Tiffany Blue Card Stock 100# from!
fan 1
The wedding season is almost upon us and so many are planning outdoor weddings. You want your guests to be as comfortable as possible.  Why not a fan?
Fan 2First I printed out a little announcement/thank you onto a sheet of Solid Tiffany Blue Card Stock 100#.  Using Spellbinders Labels 29, I cut out the printed information and a heavy piece of chipboard that is white on one side.  I used Scor-Tape to adhere the two pieces together.  I glued the fan handle to the back with a strong adhesive.  When I took the photo above, I had planned to tie lace on the handle.  However, I changed my mind and used seam binding instead.  I like it better!
Fan 3What do you think?  This is something that is easy to do in mass quantities, it wouldn’t be very expensive, and your guests will have something to keep as a reminder of your special day!
Thanks for taking a look!  Have a wonderful day! products used:

Anniversary Card by Sandee Shanabrough

Hi there!  Sandee Shanabrough here again!

This time with an elegant card for a wedding or for a special anniversary!

Anniversary 1On a base card made with Classic White Card Stock 100#, I attached a layer of  Black Brocade on Classic White Solid 100# with foam tape.  This beautiful paper has been embossed with Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics and Radiant Rectangles dies.

Anniversary 2I stamped the scripture from Our Daily Bread designs Scripture Collection #10 onto a piece of Classic White Solid Card Stock 165# with Memento Black ink.  I cut it out with another die from the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies.  This card stock is rather thick so I did need to run it through my cutting machine several times using a shim.  But the result is beautiful!  I added a beautiful blue organdy bow to complete the card.

Thank you for looking!  Have a wonderful day! products used:

DIY Equine Themed Wedding Invitation by Anna Wight

Hello, hello! Anna Wight with you today, sharing a relatively simple DIY wedding invitation made with the A7 Atlas Taupe Brown Recycled Pocket Card, Sand Specks Recycled 80# Cardstock and Black Medium 65# Cover cardstock from
I started by designing my invitation using a word processing program. I printed the invitation onto Sand Specks Recycled 80# cardstock. I trimmed the cardstock to the size I needed, and backed it with a piece of Black Medium 65# Cover cardstock, cut slightly larger to allow a narrow border to show. I used a serrated tracing wheel to add some faux stitching lines around the edges. I adhered this portion of the invitation to the Pocket Card with tape runner adhesive.Next I printed simple RSVP cards and a small map to the location of the event, and tucked them, along with a pre-addressed and stamped envelope, into the pocket of the Pocket Card.

To seal up my invitation, I printed horse icons on the Sand Specks Recycled 80# cardstock and punched them out with an oval paper punch. I adhered the oval to the flap of the invitation using a tape runner adhesive. Finally, I wrapped the Pocket Card with hemp cording, tied in a bow.

Thanks for joining me here today! I hope you are inspired!

Peach Metallic Pocket Folder Invitation by Debbie Seyer

 My name is Debbie Seyer and this is my first post for the Papers and More Design Team!
 I have a unique event coming up in the month of April.  My oldest daughter is a Senior in college and is required to have a musical recital as one of the requirements to complete the Music Education/Saxophone Performance degree.  So in April, she will be performing 30 minutes of Tenor and Alto Saxophone music pieces with a piano accompanist for her professors, family and friends.  She asked me to create an invitation that she can hand out at school to the professors and a couple of her saxophone lessons teachers.  So this is what I came up with using the A-7 Atlas Peach (Coral) Metallic Pocket Folder card.
Peach Invitation 1 These invitations will be hand-delivered so I had some fun creating 3d flowers using the 80# Sand Cardstock and the Botanical Rose dies (Heartfelt Creations).  I created a “belly” band closure so that the doily heart (Tonic Studios die) and the flowers could just be slipped off to read the invitation.
Peach Invitation 2Inside the pocket, I created a program for the performance.  I will make some other programs for the actual day to hand out but I thought including the program in with the invite would give her professors a glimpse of what they will be listening too!  I also think a RSVP card and a card with directions to the venue would be a good idea, too!
Here is a close-up of the flowers I created using the 80# Sand Cardstock, I inked the edges with Rose Coral Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink and added some seed pearls.
 Peach Invitation 3
These will be a labor of love for me to create  to celebrate all of my daughter’s hard work and hours of practice!  I can hardly wait for her performance!
Thanks for stopping by!

DIY Frozen Party Invitations and Favors by Sandee Shanabrough

Sandee Shanabrough here with a birthday party invitation and two party favor ideas for a Frozen birthday party theme that you can easily DIY for your little princess!

Oh, a strand of blue pearls, and silver elastic cording too!

Frozen 3I adhered the printed invitation and then popped up the snowflakes with foam tape.  I glued a silver bow onto the double snowflake for a little dazzle.  You could easily add sparkle with glitter or glitter glue as well.

Frozen 4It would be very hard to have a princess party without a magic wand! The star/snowflake combo is taped to the lollipop stick. You could use a straw for this project as well.

Frozen 5And here is a cute little cupcake topper!  You can see how the toothpick slides up in between the two flowers that are glued together.

FrozenOne more view of all three projects.  The sky is the limit as to what you can create for your princess party!  Remember, if hosting a party for a very young child, be sure to supervise them at all times with smaller or pointy pieces.

Thank you for taking a look at this fun project!
