Wedding Invitations

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share with you some wedding invitations that I created for my cousins wedding in Jamaica, WI this July!!

I was commissioned to create 105 invitations with little directions.  The colors are blue, coral and white.  That was all I had to go on and i didn’t have a lot time to create them since they needed to go out so that people could make their travel plans.

Take a look at the invites:

Invitation complete

You have the invitation and envelope, reply card and envelope and a ribbon closure.

Check out my journey:

To create the invitation base, I used the envelope punch board to create an envelope but this is no ordinary envelope.

Invitation base

Once these card bases were cut and scored, the actually invite was created digitally and sent to print.

Once they printed, they were cut and adhered inside the blue base with Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive.

Cut invites

Next up were the envelopes.  105 envelopes were cut using a Stampin’ Trimmer. They were adhered together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.

Scoring the cardstock is up next.

The reply cards were created digitally as well.  Printed and sized perfectly.  The envelopes were created for those as well.

Once all of the paper was cut and put together.  The invitations were complete.

Invitation sets

I have to admit, I was given a month and a half to complete these and it was hard work.

I can’t imagine how you found the time to make all of these while working full time, being a Mom and making cards for the different challenges and DTs you’re on. You are amazing!! ~HUGS~

  3. These are beautiful Kymona! They turned out great and I can imagine how long they must’ve taken. How lucky your cousin is to have such a creative and talented person in their family to make these! (@peoniesandpalette)
