This morning was so much fun. Karen, the future bride, along with her friends and relatives, came over to make 65 wedding invitations. These ladies came to work! Most of them didn’t have any experience with paper crafting, but they were eager to help. They even put the return address label and postage stamp on the envelopes and sealed them. Everyone worked assembly line style to get each step completed. All Karen has to do is add the mailing labels and they are ready to go! They were done in five hours, with a break for lunch too.
Karen chose the popular tri-fold wedding invitation style. Since it is an autumn wedding, Karen wanted to use the oak leaves stamp from Lovely as a Tree stamp set. Her wedding colors are burgundy and ivory, so the invitations match.
When you open the invitation, your eye is immediately drawn to the photograph. It is a favorite picture of Karen and Jeff’s taken from the cabin. The next thing you see is a meaning quote of the couple’s.
When you open the invitation up completely, you see the "official invitation" information and the map.
Here is the special group of people that I was priviledged to spend my day with. It was so much fun to get to know them and to be a part of preparing for the wedding. NOTE: Each of them are holding the invitation featuring a different part of the invitation.
What I love about helping brides make custom invitations is NO ONE will have an identical wedding invitation. It is unique and personal for each couple. That is something to treasure!
