1 Down, 1 To Go!

Happy Tuesday!

I wanted to share the wedding invitations I made for my brother's wedding. I finished them on Saturday with the help of my soon to be sister in law. It was fun working together, but it was a very long day and we are both happy to have them finished! Thanks for all you did Lindsay! :)

I'm still working on the invites for my aunt's wedding, but I should have those finished in the next couple of days. Then I will be taking a break and only stamping for fun!

So, for these invites, I used my Cuttlebug Flowers embossing folder and the stamp sets Baroque Motifs and To Have and To Hold. We went with Black, White, and Lavender for the colors as these are the wedding colors as well.


The base of the invitation is one full sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, scored and folded with other layers of cardstock over the black. It's a trifold design with a ribbon tie closure.

The inside wording was printed on vellum and attached to a stamped piece of white cardstock with eyelets. We added little sticky rhinestones to the eyelets to cover the holes. The rhinestones are actually what some people use to add bling to their cellphones. They worked perfectly!

We made a total of 120 invites! It was a lot of work, but well worth the effort. My brother and his fiancee are very happy with them.

Thanks for looking...off to get working on the other invites! Have a great day. Happy Stamping!
