Wedding invitations

Well the inviations I mentioned months ago are all finished and have mostly been sent out I belive so I think I am safe to post this now as I did promise you would be able to see them!!

Here is a box full of the first 20 to go out! There were 200 wedding, evening invites and order of services in total!

The Wedding invitation Outside! Both the wedding and evening invite are the same, with a little wording differences! The ribbon was sourced from add some sparkle and the pearlised red/razzleberry card was from the paper box.  I have used an embossing folder (hearts) to create the panel and Nellie snellen multiframe scalloped oval to cut out the 'wedding invitation' sentiment that I created on the computer.  I have used a Martha stewart punch to create the edge and lightly touched it with a tim holtz distress ink. I have then added 3 gems and tied the bow.

Inside!  The invite is made using 2 sqaure cards folded together to get the fold the client wanted.  The coloured card has been used on the bottom to create a pocket for the RSVP to go into.  I have n used 3 gems , a heart gem in the centre to decorate.

The main invite and info has been printed on my computer then I have used a Martha stewart crner punch to decorate the corners, then mounted it onto the card and stuck it onto the centre panel.  I have used the punched out coloured hearts from the pocket panel to add the heart to the invites and RSVP for extra decoration.

Close up of invite(names andvenues have been deleted for obvious reasons!)

Showing the RSVP coming out of the pocket.

Evening invite, same as wedding invite, just different wording.

I am not sure this will qualify for any challenges, but will have a look around!

Thanks for stopping by
