Happy work!

I've been working on our Son's wedding invitations for about a week and I'm  done except for filling the envelopes and adding the postage.  

 I also am working on my nieces wedding  invitations!!

I really enjoy doing weddings and try to make each set very personal. 

 Molly my future daughter in law saw a card that I made and said "that is it, can you doing a invite like this??


she like the damask and gold frame so much, all of the decor for the wedding will involved ivory and black damask and gold!

I thought I'd show a sneak peek of the invites, since that is just about all I am doing - Wedding!!


I can't get to detailed until after they are mailed:
fun working from the dinning room table!

The photo is one from the engagement set that I shot of them in the fall:



ready for final  back stamps

The RSVP is actually a sheet of 80# cover  cardstock cut to 6" wide.  I set the "type" on one sheet - you have to rotate one set of text  to an upside down position,
then print, score, fold and glue.  I used a vintage paper pad press to make them nice and flat.  The double paper makes a perfect weight for an RSVP post card.  This is a very easy and affordable way to do the RSVP's!



I printed a damask heart on the envelope too, you can't see the teal accent glitter dots in the center of the hear, but they are there!  Teal will be the accent color.


The base of the invitation is Canson 130# water color paper that went through my Canon Pixma (low end printer) I printed the base on a soft white Strathmore water color paper 100#  It too k the inks beautifully.  I thought I'd share as I know many of you do invites too!


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

  1. Hi Ginny, oh these invitations are coming out beautiful. I especially like the damask heart, though I think damask in general is just so elegant. Happy Tuesday! Hugs, Crystal
