Wedding Invitations

I bet you thought that I had gone quiet again? But I'm still here, I've been busy make Wedding Invitations, 30 to exact and looking after my gorgeous Grandson while his Mummy and Daddy had a weekend away. I must admit to sharing this duty with his other Grandmother and I had forgotten how much hard work baby's can be. Anyway on to the invitations. The wedding is at the beginning of June and the happy couple have only just decided on a theme and a design for their cards, so I had to get a move on and make them. The base and the topper were made with a pearlised ivory card which was put through a Tattered lace embossing folder on the corner. The topper was place on a mat of navy blue card and navy blue ribbon was added across the top on the embossing. The small bows with the pearl are some that I've had in my stash for a long time but they matched so well so I added them to the ribbon. The butterfly is from Rob Addams All Occasion Dies (it's from a set of three) and finally rather than the traditional Wedding Invitation they've gone for From This Day Forward, which is from a set of stamps I have from Fiskars.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
