Wedding Invites

At last I think it should be OK to show you the wedding invites I made for my niece - they have all been posted out now, so it should be safe enough.  I used a cream shimmery card for the base and then embossed a piece for the front.  The layer under this is a pealised raspberry pink card and the ribbon is from Meiflower - they were very helpful in sorting me out with what I needed.  I used the same ribbon to tie a wee bow and then the pearl diamante thing was stuck in the centre.  The label was printed on the computer and punched out using a SU punch and the pink layer under it was also made with a SU punch, then finished off with a tiny adhesive pearl either side.  Because of the thickness of the embellishments, I had to make wee boxes to post them out in - my Scorepal board was very useful for this (I used the same card as for the invites).  The photography is rubbish as usual - the colours look much better than this IRL!

  1. Lovely elegant invitation - was up in Enniskillen a couple of weeks ago - visited a new craft shop while I was there just opposite the Erne Centre - think it will be lovely when she gets all her stock in - you asked where I get my verses I have built up a stash of them over the years from surfing the internet - if ever you need something just email me I just might have something suitable
