Wedding Invitations | Cory & Taunia

To say that these were a labour of love would be pushing it.

Don't get me wrong - I love my nephew and his fiancĂ©e 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.

*some info has been blurred - to prevent y'all from crashing the wedding! ;)

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!

As a side note, if you have a loved one getting married, check out the Wed Pics app - very cool way to get your guests involved in capturing their special day!
