I think I mentioned in the past a wedding invitation I helped a friend on and since a few of you have requested to see it, here you go. I hesitated to post before because the wedding hadn't occurred yet and because it didn't photograph nearly as well as it looks in person. This bride wanted very natural and simple and she chose all the details.
The soft suede cardstock was cut to fold over the vellum cardstock by 1.5" so the final size is 4.25" x 5.5" just like a standard card, fitting nicely into a standard envelope. It was tied with a bow of twine (I used linen thread for my example here).
The piece underneath with the printed details is Naturals Ivory cardstock. We incorporated the green (Wild Wasabi) from her wedding colors by stamping this image from Inspired by Nature (it is stamped off once so not too distracting.)
I didn't take a picture but the programs were this exact style but ended up being 4.25" by 7.5" finished, including the 1" folded over piece at the top. This way we were able to efficiently use an entire piece of cardstock! I am a tad anal about being efficient.
In case you missed it, HERE is the card I made for the happy couple. Of course I had to make sure it coordinated in color and style!
Funny story about the necklace... after I had it all done, and realizing that I didn't really know what I was doing, I decided I should wear it around for a little bit to make sure it wasn't scratchy etc. So I put it on and proceded to sit at my desk to check a few emails. Approximately five minutes later it suddenly without warning snapped and beads flew everywhere! I honestly was only moving my fingers so I'm SO GLAD I thought to wear it. That is one of the reasons it was so late, I basically had to start over!
Now that my kids are back in school you'd think I'd be stamping every day but I've still got so many projects to clean up from and catch up housework that it might be a few days still. We've finally gotten our playhouse/game room painted and started putting furniture in so I've been cruising Pinterest obsessively trying to come up with cute ideas. Now to put them all to use! Maybe I'll have some fun pictures to share once we're all settled in.
Well, that's it. Thanks for stopping by!
