100 WEDDING INVITATIONS

A dear friend asked me to design and make her wedding invitations and here is the result!
I've erased their names for the photo from the top of the card but they were done in larger Edwardian script font and is a lovely contrast to the Ariel font block printing.

Since I had to make so many, it had to be simple to do and yet I wanted it to look quite classy also.  When I saw Julie Ebersole's Bold Blooms stamps and dies, that was it.  The invitation is printed on Neenah metallic white gold and the die cut is Neenah chalice silver cardstock.  I stamped the blooms in the corners with Colorbox silver pigment ink.  The vellum belly band holds both the invitation and the reply card.  Adhering the die cuts to the vellum band really went very quickly as I put some Glossy Accents in a Fineline bottle and was able to just use little dots of it.  This was thanks to Jennifer McGuire - see her video here.  Glossy accents dries so quickly that I didn't have to worry about having anything stick together when I stacked them.  I am doing the wedding program and will use the flower stamped in silver on that also.

Thanks for stopping by and always enjoy reading your kind comments!  Betty

  8. What a creating machine you are, Betty!! These are spectacular and must have taken you ages to do, even with an assembly-line process and a fineline bottle! We all want you as our best friends!! I imagine the program is every bit as sensational!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
