I just finished up an order of wedding invitations for a super-sweet couple whose guest list kept growing and growing! We started out at 150 and ended up at 190. That’s 190 invitations, folks — not guests. So yeah, I’ve been busy! I do love working with couples on their invitations, though. There’s something really special about making their vision come to life and having a small part in such a special occasion.
Anyhow, here’s the outside. I used Vertico pocket folds from cardsandpockets.com in Champagne. This is the equivalent of Stardream Opal, if you’re familiar with that. The monogram seal was done with circle punches. TIP: I printed the monograms in the cutting borders of the invitation panels to cut down on waste.
This is the invitation opened up. All printing was done on 80# Creamery Felt cardstock, so it has a lovely texture that contrasts nicely with the smooth shimmer of the pocket fold.
The flourish is stamped with Papertrey’s Fancy Flourishes stamps in Brilliance Platinum Planet, which is a shimmery pigment ink that matches the outside of the invitation perfectly. Here’s a close-up:
I hope Christine and William don’t end up spending this whole beautiful day inside addressing and stuffing envelopes. Tomorrow it’s gonna rain!
