Young and so very much in love....
I felt quite blessed,months ago, when my friend Debbie asked me -requested by her oldest daughter Stephanie- if I could do Stephanie and Paul's wedding invitations. We set up a date meeting with the bride-2-be and it all took off from there. In fact ,so much so that the young bride chose the pocket invites she liked best amongst the choices I gave her,that very evening. Yeahhhh for a very decisive bride, I say! :o)
Stephanie wanted pockets to be able to include a couple of gift-registries tags and a souvenir- picture of the couple (my suggestion and in black and ivory too,since we had extra space for it) The written invite part was taped on the inside part of the card, as requested by the groom.Stephanie and Paul's color choices were: Black,Purple,Ivory,and a touch of silver ,sponged around the purple panels.I stamped Baroque Motif in front of each pocket card and embossed it with clear embossing powder,thus giving it a very distinctive classy look without being overpowering (I tried it in Ivory and Silver as well first,but the clear look won! )On top of the scroll a few 'diamond gems' were applied and a silver organza ribbon tied the whole ensamble together
The ivory envelope has been scrolled with a large wheel set ,inked with Archival black onix(can't remember the wheel name,and at the moment I have it out on loan too...)Here you have it...what do you think?? The young couple and their families seemed very pleased with it. Oh...and I almost forgot to mention that I have made 150 of these invites....and yes....I also made sure I got some help from the bride and a couple of her family members as well as time was at a premium too!...* mmm....come to think of it....I never even uploaded them on SCS...that's a first! :o(
