Whoops! Falling behind again....after showing my Wedding Invite ornaments, I thought I had better show the invite itself.
We made 120 invitations for the wedding. The type was set on a Mac and run out on white paper then glued to a metallic blue text stock, which was then glued to a metallic white/silver cardstock. The snowflakes were punched out using a store bought snowflake punch and the direction map was drawn in Illustrator.
The invite, response card, reply envelope and direction card were all inserted into a hand cut envelope which was folded and secured with white ribbon (which could be easily slipped on and off and is shown below ) These envelopes were from embossed cardstock which was then embellished with glitter glue drops.
The whole invite was then placed in the outer enveloped and mailed. The outer envelope matched the pale blue metallic paper which was used in the invite. We were very pleased with the results and I think my sister was too! :-)
The ribbon was purchased at Michael's as was the embossed card stock. The "Winter Wonderland" theme was carried throughout with the sparkly paper in white and pale blue. These metallic papers and the reply and blue metallic outer envelopes were purchased from the Paper Garden, which was a super fantastic company to deal with and supplied us with a stellar product. I can't say enough about them--if you need paper products of any kind, please give them a look; they also send out free paper samples!
And many thinks to my crew of helpers, who gave time to glue, punch fold and cut alongside me.
