Wedding Day (3)



If you are visiting via Nichole's blog today you surely know that I have something up my sleeve...



How's that for a cuff link? *lol*

Today's project is a very simple wedding invitation. The nice thing about hand crafted wedding invitations is they can be taken from simple to detailed by simply adding more stamping or embellishments etc. And remember, when you have 100+ invites to make, you want to keep as simple as possible.

Step 1
I began by cutting 2 5.25x11 sheets of kraft paper and scoring them both at 5.5



Step 2
Next I stamped my image on the outside of one of the pieces of kraft cardstock after which I used a 1 1/4 circle punch to punch a hole through the centre.



I created the peek-a-book hole and added the date and some decorative images to the centre of the whole. Notice I am able to customize my date. If you like the traditional month, day and year listed you will be pleased to know that you could have also stamped August 8, 2008 using Wedding Day too! The option is yours!!!!





Step 3
Adhere the two pieces of kraft cardstock together in the centre (one card overlaps the other)



Step 4

As I have finished decorating most of the outside of the card, I decided to work on the inside.
I cut
2- 5x 5.25 sheets of spring moss
1- 3.5x4.25 sheet of spring moss
and used the corner rounder to round all the pieces of cardstock. Adhere them to the inside of the card.



Step 5
Print out your invitation, ceremony information and RSVP on white cardstock. Cut both the invitation and ceremony information to 4.75x5 sheets of white. Cut the RSVP to 3.25x 4 sheet of white. Using the corner rounder, round the edges. You can see that I chose to stamp a few simple images to accent the information and then adhered them.

Note: The decorative corner coordinates with the decorative square seen on Nichole's and Taylor's sneak peaks, as well as the circle from today's project and the decorative bar used on the wedding planner--what can I say...I like coordinating things!







I included this black strip to hold the RSVP in place so that it can be removed for convenience.



As a final touch I added a strip of black and some ribbon to the outside of my card.



I hope you have a super day...make sure you check out Nichole's blog and Lisa's blog for some sneak peaks using Wedding Day.

Congratulations on another set release. Seeing this invitation makes me wish I could get married again so I could make my own invitations this time. Oh yeah, get married to the same husband, of course. :)

My daughter is getting married on 08.08.08 and I'm making the invitations. I LOVE what you've done here and so does my daughter, so it looks like I'll be giving it a try. My question is if you have any suggestions for adding an envie for the reply card AND where to tuck in directions for the wedding/reception location. I know you're busy but would really appreciate any help your brilliant mind can offer. ;)

Thanks so much -- you did an awesome job with this, and even if I weren't needing to make wedding invitations, I'd definitely be buying this set!

Barbara B said...

All of your ideas are awesome! The candle tutorial was my favorite for today. My daughter is likely to marry within a year or two: she and her boyfriend just celebrated dating for three years yesterday. I am on the lookout for ideas for a possible wedding :)
This stamp set might be a good purchase to make.

Peggy Maier said...
