A Wedding!

Some friends of our from church are getting married tonight.  I am so looking forward to a wonderful night out.  It's been quite a while since I've been to a wedding and I just know it will be beautiful!  I actually had a small part in it - I made the invitations.  When the bride asked me to help her make invitations we initially talked about a different "theme" but when that got put aside and she said elegant, romantic and pink I knew exactly what to do!

This beautiful stamp set is from Innovative Stamp Creations.  If you have never seen their products you really should go have a look!  They have the most beautiful nature-themed stamps as well as beautiful images and background stamps.  They have been a generous donor at some of our past Stamping Around events and they located here in New England.  This set is Delicate Roses and my favorite stamp is the large rose background stamp, it's gorgeous!!

So, this is what I came up with.  The bride loves pink so we went with pink shimmer paper - it's so lovely!!  I stamped the rose background on Vintage Cream cardstock and then printed the invitation on vellum cardstock using a sepia code for the ink color.  I stamped and embossed the small rose image in pink on the top of the vellum layer - I love how it peeks through the shaped edges of the gatefold!  The ribbon - oh the ribbon is to die for! It's from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  It's 1.25" silk ribbon, just dreamy! 

The response card was fairly simple, just a piece of cardstock which was printed and then stamped with the rose background.  I also made table number cards and placecards but don't have pictures of those.  I'm pretty sure she liked everything and I'm pretty sure she's looking forward to tonight! :)  Have a wonderful day my friends!!

Cardstock:  Pink Shimmer, Vintage Cream, Vellum Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Stamps: Delicate Roses (Innovative Stamp Creations), Ink:  Angel Pink (Memento), Accessories:  Silk Ribbon (May Arts), Pink embossing powder
