Wedding Annoucements

As promised, here is a picture of my little sister's wedding invitations. This past weekend my mom and sister flew in to help make all of the invites. We didn't finish all 600 (nope, not a typo) but we made very good progress. We completely finished 300, and all of the cutting and hole punching for the others. We probably could have finished all of them, but we decided to take some time to have fun too. Can't have all work and no play. :-)

As we started making them, I was SO glad that my sister chose such a simple invite. She sent a picture of the style that she wanted and picked the colors (Barely Banana and Certainly Celery), so I didn't even really have to design anything, just order the paper and ribbon. :-) My mom even had all of the (embossed) printing done professionally so I didn't even have to worry about that.

I didn't think to take a picture of the progress of the invites until we were boxing them up. So here you go, one of the largest Stampin Up boxes, full to the top with invitations!

Now to make the invites for her bridal shower. . . .

Finished size is 5 1/2" by 8 1/8".

Paper: Textured Barely Banana (now discontinued), Certainly Celery, White, Vellum
Accessories: Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile
