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?
