What does Paper Pumpkin have in common with Chick-fil-a?

Recently I was asked asked to create hand stamped invitations for the Premiere night and Grand Opening of the new Cleveland Georgia Chick-fil-a (You can click HERE to see their facebook page and what’s happening).

I was thrilled a location would be opening in Cleveland since Chick-fil-a is a favorite of mine – I can still remember being introduced to this restaurant at the CNN Center on my first trip to downtown Atlanta in 1982. I was hooked. And since Milwaukee didn’t have this culinary delight, I had to wait until 1984 and my move to Atlanta to take advantage of these chicken sandwiches on a regular basis. LOL!

Any how, want to see what I came up with? This first card was for the Premiere event. I’ve used the exclusive Paper Pumpkin stamp set from the Sew You kit that arrived in my mailbox March this year. (If you want to learn more about this kit, it is still available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers – Click HERE to see more information about past kits)

This first card uses the red and black colors that Chick-fil-a is known for and has a more elegant feel to it since it uses our Red Glimmer Paper, Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

What does assembling 140 invitations look like – here is a quick glimpse at part of the process.

And this second card, used for the invitations to the Grand Opening uses our more country inspired, Farmers Market Designer Series Paper (138448) since Chick-fil-a wanted a more casual country feel.

I chose the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140) and the Cherry Cobbler polka dot and Blackberry gingham patterns from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper  (138448) to create these cards. Bringing a more home grown feel to things.

Here is a close up of the Blackberry Bliss version, sorry but I forgot to take a photo of the Cherry Cobbler Polka dot version.

So what do you think? Which one is your favorite? Elegant or country?

Don’t you love the way that just a little change like color or Designer Series Papers can change the look and feel of your project? Two cards, same layout and stamp set – but  two totally different feels.
