Don't get me wrong - I love my nephew and his fiancée and would do anything for them. The same holds true for all of my nieces and nephews. However, these invitations were such a P.I.T.A, right from the start that by the time we could see the light at the end of the tunnel, we were second-guessing our decision to make them instead of ordering them!
I have to say, though - they were worth every bead of sweat, every gray hair, every four-letter word.
Supplies used: Bazzill cardstock; PhotoShop Creative Suite, StarSunflower Studio digital file; Silhouette Cameo and various cut files; Gabriola and Lavanderia fonts; organza ribbon.
The invitation "folder" was based on a cut file by Lori Whitlock. I adapted it to fit the invitation and enclosures and changed the flap using part of a Totally Jamie file. To open, untie the green ribbon and slide off the wide organza ribbon.
I designed the invitation, RSVP card and accommodations card using PhotoShop Creative Suite and a freebie digital file from StarSunflower Studio.
*I know, my nephew's full name is a mouthful - but it honours both his grandfathers...
Here's a peek at the enclosures:
The photos are a bit blurry and the colour's wonky, but you get the idea!
