I wanted to share these with you way back in May when I finished them, but couldn't get the technicalities figured out. Here they are now that the wedding is over and details can be seen. In total 150 wedding invitations were made for my son's wedding. I tried to make them able to be sent with a single first-class stamp, but with inserts it didn't come out as I'd hoped.
Details, details- The actual cardstock for the invitation measures 11" x 6" and scored and closed it is 4 and 5/8" x 6". I was able to get 2 invitations from a 12x12 sheet. CS used was Mellow Moss, Elegant Eggplant, Shimmery White and Vellum. Craft White ink was rubbed on Textile Cuttlebugged EE. Oval punches of vellum wheeled with Leaves a la Carte. The sentiment was custom made and stamped in EE onto the Shimmery white.
On the inside of the invitation, I used some Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer swirls and did some distressing with EE ink. The cuttlebugged corners are punched from Shimmery white. Invitation is printed on vellum and then wheeled with the Leaves a la Carte wheel in white ink and then layered onto the EE CS.
The pocket is simply the card scored and then folded up and held secure by a bow of sheer organdy ribbon. The swirl here was from Technique Tuesday's Whispy Gigs. A small rhinestone added a little glitz. The notch was made using my basic Grey Notch and Die Cutting tool bought specifically for this project.
The RSVP postcard was made from SU Whisper White. The stamp is from Technique Tuesday's Irony chosen by the bride.
My DH was a big help and did most of the oval punching and cuttlebugging for me. I took the cardstock to Office Max and spent pennies on getting it cut for me...... THIS was a HUGE timesaver. Although they did not do a perfect job even the small amount of fixing I had to do was worth the money spent there.
Thank you for stopping by today. I didn't get the lazy day I had hoped for and no stamping time today. I made some changes on my blog though and noticed my ticker was over 5,000. Cause for celebration wouldn't you say? Stay tuned for some blog candy aka Butterfly Kisses. That announcement should be some time tomorrow!!
Blessings to all~
