Default Need design help

I am asked/tasked with creating a wedding shower invite with the "cinderella theme". ugh

I purchased a cinderella stamp, but just can't figure out what to do with her. It's the whole body cinderella. I have one idea of cutting an oval in the card stock front and putting her on glossy paper/stamped in versamark ink some sort of blue (the resist technique). But I'm not sure what to do with the card front (with the oval)... glitter?

I just don't do well creating a card from scratch (not to mention being given a theme I have to use)... any other ideas out there?

Have you thought to emboss the image with silver or use crystal effects. Cinderella is sort of a sparkly theme so I guess anything that sparkles would be good. I think a little glass slipper somewhere on the card might be neat!

I agree with the second post! Don't bother going too "fancy" with little girls! I have this stamp too from when my 10 year old was LITTLE! It really looks nice colored in and I'd add the glitter for show! I do think she'd look nice mounted on a oval though like you mentioned.

Good luck!

how about using a one piece card instead of a folded card...you could stamp the cinderella image in the middle of the cardstock quarter, then print all the information up on vellum, and attach it over the top of the stamped image with a pretty blue ribbon?

FYI: She said she was using it for a Wedding Shower Invite, not for a little girls birthday, etc....
I like the idea of cutting our an oval, also the crystal effects.
