Wedding Invites for Helen

One of my customers from my technique club, Roberta, had a friend at work getting married this year.  She put into her head that she should hand-make her wedding invites (GREAT idea, Roberta!!!! :) :) ), and so, I designed 7 different invites (all very different), using her key colour - green.

Then we set a date, got together with 4 of her friends, and made up the 32 invites.  She was nervous when she got there (a newbie card-maker), but had a blast, and was so happy with the result.

Here's the end result of the layout she chose.

We used:

  • Certainly Celery - #105125 and Very Vanilla - #101650 card stock 
  • Certainly Celery Classic ink -  #105217
  • Basic Jewels - Pearls - #119247
  • Elegant Bouquet embossing folder - #115964
  • Valentined Defined (heart reeds) - #123057
  • Full of Life (fairy tale sentiment) - #111500
  • 3/16" corneer rounder - #119871
  • single-faced satin ribbon (Walmart - her choice, not mine - single-faced ribbon is horrible to tie!!!!)
  • I typed the insides up on my computer and printed them out, using Adobe InDesign.  (Sorry, I felt it necessary to blur out contact and address deets. ;) )

I got the inspiration for this layout from Angie Juda - she is a very talented demo in the states. :)
