RRR & Wedding Invites

I recently helped a bride-to-be with her wedding invitations. Not the making of them - she organized a work party with her friends. I helped with the consultation on how to make them and what materials to use.

She needed 2 different and easy invitations to send out for her wedding here in BC and then another invitation for a celebration with her friends in Alberta.

Both of these are "post card" type inviations - that is just one layer like a card front!

This first one is a very simple one using white on white on white. White Bazzills Bling base with a White layer and White organdy ribbon.

Here's a close up of the whites!

This next one is the actual invitation. It's a vellum layer on white cardstock on a black base.

The SU! image from Lovely as a Tree is stamped in gray on the white bottom layer.
She was so sweet about it and sent me these samples in the mail. My kids were really disappointed when they found out that these were only samples - they thought we were invited to her wedding!

They have NEVER been to a wedding and are so keen to go to one. Unfortunately, we don't know anyone that is getting married. All of our friends are old so we'll just have to wait for the next generation of weddings to happen - MAYBE in another 6 years or so we'll have a bunch of weddings to go to!

This little 3x3 was sent to me by Ilse Vargas for hosting the CASED with LOVE swap. Speaking of which I'll post some more "Sneak Peeks" for that swap later!
