The Invitations

Here they are all done, whew! It has been a rough week. My youngest daughter Kim, my eldest Stephanie (the Bride), and I spent all week, working on the design, layout, fonts for the invitation. Then I had them printed and spent endless hours cutting, gluing, and putting them together.
We placed Swarovski crystals on the top and bottom one by one. This picture does not due them justice they are stunning in person. These are the colors in her wedding. Cream, Pale Turquoise, and Black. She wanted a Vintage 1930 - 40's feel, so we used a Deco frame for the Announcement. The swirl pattern is repeated on the RSVP, Accommodation, and Reception cards on the bottom. All the Envelopes are sealed and stamped with Wedding cake postage.
I will get them out Monday. I have the labels to finish yet. Almost there. Now to start the favors......

Hi Deb,
Very art-deco and just beautiful!! I love the color combination. The printing job can be overwhelming, I agree. Great job. Hugs, Nance

Wow! These are beautiful..Nothing short of perfection.
No wonder some on said you should go into business making these...even though that would be a no... due to all the work and time that is involved...it is a well deserved compliment non the less.
