It was all about the Wedding Invite today

Today was Wedding Invite day. It may seem rather fitting since yesterday was Valentine's Day, or uhm... pop the question day.

So our friends are getting married this September at this really quaint place in Northern Wisconsin and guess who was gifted the opportunity to make their invites? This girl!

I'm pretty certain she could have had them done elsewhere but as you are aware, if you have read the last two posts, all the profits from my cards are going toward Delaney's headstone.

So with that honor, I set to work creating the perfect invite. A balance of wedding elegance and well, low maintenance simplicity... just like the bride.

With a little embossing powder, some vellum, a piece or two of ribbon and card stock, these were created.

You can see that there is a bridge printed on the cream card stock. This image was sharpened on the computer so it is distinguishable through the milky vellum layer. Each was then placed on the purple card stock. A simple knot tie was added.
Of course the backs of these will have the Because of Delaney Jane stamp, because well, she is the reason for this new movement toward the sale of cards and the creation of things like these wedding invitations. Next is the little insert card with the reception and local lodging information and then these beauties can ship to the wonderful couple. Stephanie & Steve, cross invites off your to-do list!
