For a few moments, my sister and I thought of how much fun it would be to make wedding invitations. There are so many unique and interesting invitations choices these days for brides. Many talented brides are choosing to create their own masterpiece of an invitation for their wedding. My sister and I thought for only a moment, then we decided to use the time just as a fun way to create. Here are some of the designs I came up with for an autumn wedding:
This orange card is a basic orange cardstock with gold metallic background for the gold stamped leaf which is on yellow cardstock. A golden yellow organza ribbon was used. The card is sealed with foil leaf stickers.
Just a basic invite with a brown cardstock backing. The leaves are stamped over the invitation in gold ink.
Torn paper invitation. The invitation info was printed on a lightweight paper, then torn. I used the orange and a gold shimmer paper for backgrounds, punched holes in the top part and tied in a paprika colored organza ribbon.
My sister and I worked on this one together. I added the wire embelishment to "jazz" it up a bit. Stampin' Up stamps were used for the wordage background and the L O V E. Gold ink on off white cardstock, and gold Stampin Up cardstock were used.
Orange textured shimmer cardstock with bronze shimmer cardstock, black ink and bronze gemstones. I'd use this for a card for birthdays, friendship, get well, etc.
Ivory cardstock, a gold foil pattern cardstock, and ivory paper for the invite words.
I could go on and on....I made 26 different cards - which I believe is a record for me! - in three hours time.
It was a fun day of sharing stories and exploring creativity with my sister.
