Weddings Invitations

Pink & Black Wedding Invitation
for
Joyce Smith & Brandon Tice


This month on the Designer Blog Hop (look for the blue Designer Blog Hop Button on the right side of my blog & click on it to jump to other Designer's blogs) was a CELEBRATION of some sort.

Well now.....
Weddings!  They are taking place all the time so when I was asked to create a wedding invitation for one of only three cousins.....I was DELIGHTED.  She had a design in mine after chatting awhile, a proto-type was created. She loved it at first sight thus the assembly line began!  It sure is NICE to have friends you can call on to help you create about 150 of these beauties.  I made three calls to dear friends: Pat, Brenda & Marsha, they showed up with time on their hands to help me out.


As you can tell from the picture above, lots of work went into layering these invitations.  White linen text was used to transfer the damask image onto since I couldn't find a pure white damask scrapbook paper.  Most of the damask had the silver in the white areas causing it to look dull -- believe me, I tried!


Then with the help of a Crop-a-dile long reach.....I was able to punch the holes where I needed them.
The hard work paid off & I just received this wedding invitation this past week.  You know I'll be there!  I'm also in the process of creating the bridesmaids jewelry sets.  Will post them as soon as I finish all three sets!

Until we meet again......
