This is an invitation that I designed for my friend Kristie’s daughter. She wanted something to reflect her lace dress with swirls and pearls. The belly band was embossed with a Mr & Mrs embossing folder and the inserts and invitation also were embossed. Pearls were added to the invitation and belly band. The jacket provided a place to hold every thing together including a photo of the Bride & Groom.
Originally Kristie was going to make them herself. My husband and I were in the states in February for our Daughters marriage and I helped Kristie get every thing she needed to make these, assuring her that she could do this herself with my help via Facetime and me having the typesetting set up for her. What was I thinking???? When I realised she was making 600 invitations! That is a huge task even for me who is very experienced. So my lovely husband suggested I fly over and help get them made. In the end I was there for 8 weeks and my poor husband regretted suggesting it! I admit that it was a little long…….. in my defence my reasoning was sound, make the invitations, spend some time with my daughter, go to the wedding, celebrate my grand daughters birthday and celebrate Kristie and my birthday (same day) In the end we made over 600 invitations! The whole family helped and it was lots of fun! I have a little video of Kristie’s boys using the cuttlebug, it was hilarious, unfortunately I can’t up load it on this version of wordpress.
Chelsea wanted a red, black and white theme for her invitations and choose White for her Invitation along with White inclusions featuring embossing with the added touch of pearls and tied together with a black Satin ribbon. I’ve taken this standard pocket folder and tweaked it a little by adding some embossing to the front flap giving it a more elegant look.
Recently I visited the beautifull Paronella Park in Innisfail, Queensland. A perfect venue for a fairytale wedding! http://www.paronellapark.com.au/
This pocket fold style features embossing to the front section, a ‘glass slipper’ tied with a silver cord serves as a belly band. Once opened a beautiful invitation is revealed! A ‘Tiara’ style diamante embellishment at the top creates a romantic princess feel and adds bling! To the left a corner style pocket holds the inclusions together nicely.
This invitation combines both style and elegance creating a beautiful theme for a fairy tale wedding.
Alternatively I’ve used an organza ribbon to hold the pocket fold together which creates a different look to this versatile invitation.
These quality embossed wedding invitations are perfect for the bride on a budget without sacrificing style! Featuring a gorgeous embossed swirl design and 3 diamantes giving this classic design a modern twist. Complete with matching embossed envelope and guest name/ guest name and address printed to both the invitation and envelope.
