Wedding Sweet Invitation

Wedding Invitation made with Stampin'UP! Stamp set: Wedding Sweet. Made by Stamp Lady Katie
As promised yesterday, here is Dana's wedding invitation.  The image here is from a stamp set called Wedding Sweet. The elegant looking sentiment on the front of the card also part of the set.

When mass-producing I go for something not too complicated -  i.e. not too many steps.
  • We cut a standard size base from Rich Razzleberry and folded it in half
  • We used the Eyelet Border Punch on the front edge which shortened it enough to see the white inside along the lace edge
  • The white inside was printed on a computer and then cut to 8 1/4 by 5 1/4 (just smaller than the card base.
  • We folded the white insert in half and then used the cutter tool to perforate the Response Card portion
  • Then decorated the invitation half using the Sweet Swirls wheel.
  • The white insert was adhered on the right side but was loose on the left so people could tear off the Response card

Regarding Envelopes: We included a stamped return addressed envelope for the response cards. We used our Stampin'UP! envelopes for the response cards and found a slightly larger "invitation envelope" for mailing out the whole ensemble.  

I did enjoy the project. They were fun to make and certainly cost me less than having them printed somewhere. Admittedly part of the goal was to be frugal, but it was also very satisfying to hear the compliments and wows. And, they were fun to make!
