Wedding Invitations

Sorry for the delay in posting. Life caught up with me, and I had several things for that needed to be taken care of for work and around the house. But I’m back, and have plenty of projects to share with you!

This weekend, my cousin Kimarr married her best friend, Andrew. The wedding was in Minnesota, and unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend. I did, however, have the privilege of creating her wedding invitations. I was honored she wanted me to make them, and she loved how they turned out (i’m pretty proud of them too!)

I sent her several color samples, and she decided Pool Party was the closest match to her wedding colors. One of the great things about Stampin’Up! is that the ink and the cardstock are guaranteed to match–making the the design process much easier! No, I did not make the pocketfold. I ordered them from cardsandpockets.com, the company I purchased pocketfolds when I created my own wedding invites almost 4 years ago. I was extremely pleased with their products, as well as their pricing and shipping time.

I printed the wedding information on Whisper White Cardstock, and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to align the medallion. For the response card, I used sticky strip to ensure the layers wouldn’t come apart in the mail. In total I created 95 wedding invites (each invite included 3 additional cards–rsvp, directions, and registry. Lots of measuring, cutting, stamping, snailing, and aligning–it was a labor of love, but I was happy to be able to personalize them for her special day.

Here’s a picture of her at the wedding reception. I’d say the Pool Party cardstock/ink was a pretty good match–don’t you think??? Congratulations Kimarr and Andrew!
