Wedding Invites


Well here they are, the invitations that I busted my butt on for my friends wedding. I used Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant, and Lavender Lace cardstock. The cakes are a $1 stamp from Michaels and embossed with sterling silver embossing powder.
I really liked that Mark and Heather wanted to keep it simple for their wedding invitations...and to keep the cost of mailing down. These cards (the pattern is from Nichole Heady's blog) fit in a standard A2 envelope. The response card is just a postcard!

I embossed the back of the response card to match the invitations. They came out so cute. I only had to make 60, so it wasn't so bad. Just alot of piecing together and almost production line stuff.

When I made the sample for this invitation, I used the Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder, but they preferred the Divine Swirls embossing folder. I think it turned out beautifully. The original intention was to use a small magnet or removable double sided tape to keep the flap closed, but Mark ended up getting me a Basic Grey Notch and Die cutter to make the little notchy bit to keep the flap closed.
What do you all think?

@Dawn Yeah, those are really nice. Makes me think too that I wanna get married too! hahaha :) I have been customizing my DVD invitations and I think that I can combine the design with my DVD invitations. I got that idea from Silver Screen Invites.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward
for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

I do not drop a comment, but I browsed a great deal of remarks on "Wedding Invites".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it simply me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I'd like to keep
up with you. Could you list of all of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
or twitter feed?
