Wedding Invitation

I've been making some wedding invitation samples and these are a few of them. It's always interesting if you ask different people which ones they like the best and least, as the ones that are bottom of the list for some are favourites for others. This top one is a very classic design - rounded corners on a white card blank, red organza ribbon and a Stampin' Up sentiment, oval punch and scalloped oval punch. I've deliberately not used 'wedding invitation' words on any of these so that I can use the cards again, but obviously the words will be substitued for whatever our friends would like, but these are just for examples of styles.

This is personally one of my favouirites as it's simple and delicate colours. On the pink card blank I've inked a white strip of cream card, and inked a punched scalloped cream circle too. Then I've printed the couple's initials onto white paper and punched and inked that too. The some simple pearls and a perforated circle tool for sewing to create the dotted lines, which you can see if you look closely.

I do love classic styles so I also liked this one - a die-cut heart from felt, with some inked rectangles of card and a simple Stampin' Up sentiment. I'll publish the others over this week and then I hope you'll tell me which is your favourite and not so favourite - just for curiousity!

Hi Jenny

They're all lovely but I think the top one is my favourite because I really like the ribbon.

Best Wishes

So far the die cut heart is my favourite - very interesting texture to add to a card. Whoever gets a card like that won't be able to resist touching that heart all the time - Michelle
