Wedding Invite Samples...

Ok, I've been promising these for weeks.... so here they are!

This one is 5X7 with a ribbon tie. I used Regal Rose cardstock from SU!.

It has a pocket on the inside left for three cards- accomodations, reception, and RSVP. I used my Borders Mini from Papertrey Ink to create the little box that says Mr. & Mrs. inside.

I used shimmer white cardstock for the printed invite- and made the names rose to stand out. I placed a piece of cardstock vellum over the text and attached the two with a piece of ribbon to match the front.

This one was a big hit!!

And the first one I came up with...

I made this one quite a bit smaller- I used Petty in Pink SU! paper and rounded the edges using the Coluzzle Cutting System. I stamped the entire thing with an image from Doodle This in Versa Mark so that it matched the paper.

I made a belly band with the same color and tied a sheer white and black grosgrain ribbon around it.

I then made a tag using my designer punch and a circle punch to hang from the ribbons. I sponged the white circle with Pretty in Pink ink and attached the whole thing with a piece of silver thread. I wrote "Mr. & Mrs. Kennedy" on it for show... My thought was to put the names of the guests on each tag OR a monogram, etc.

For the inside, I used white cardstock over a black base. More cardstock vellum for overlay and two silver brads to attach the sheets together.

I had some mixed reviews on this one... but overall I like the way it turned out!!
I showed them both to Meagan last night and so far she's liking the first one.
I'm going to create some more samples and we'll hammer out details soon. I can't believe she's getting married in a few short months!! Crazy!

In other good news... I met someone else last night that may need invites for her Michigan reception- she's having a destination wedding in May. Fun!! I hope she see's this, and I hope she gets a hold of me- I'd love to do something fabulous for her too!! :)

Let me know what YOU think about my samples!!
