I was asked, by two of my dear friends who are to wed this year, if I could make their wedding invitations. Oh man! This is an area I haven’t touched until recently. I met with the Bride & Groom-to-be and they brought me a pic from a wedding magazine and asked me if I could re-create the card they loved. Looking at the sample and seeing that it resembled the flowers from SU! Artfully Asian set, I said, “yes”. I wrote up a contract, explained the “Angel Policy”, gathered up all supplies I would need, and got started. This meeting is what made me fall in love with the color combo of Vanilla, Navy, and Turquoise:) It’s hot I tell ya!
Note (I blurred out all names and personal info so it may look a little wierd to you). I started with a box that coordinates with their colors and simply states “thank you” on the lid as my little package gift to them. I placed all of their invites and such in this box. They could use this box later for thank you’s they will need to send out:
I purchased a box at my local craft store. The top was covered with SU! DSP (retired but matched). Added a strip of Navy Satin Ribbon. Topped off with the sentiment made from sets Artfully Asian & Frames with a Flourish. The sentiment has two layers with the upper layer attached to bottom stamped square with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I did notice that it was slightly off center and did fix after I took the pic 🙂
It is rather hard to see details, but all flowers have Crystal Effects to them. There are little dry embossed circles to the rsvp card to separate the response section from the return address section.
Here is another pic of the wedding package from a different view:
I will be making a gift for them that I will post once I finish it (well, have to start it…lol). I want to make them something to showcase their invite. It will be framed and elegantly decorated to coordinate with their theme.
TFL and have a wonderful day:)
