Before I got back from Orkney lots of decisions had been made regarding the wedding including the wedding date which had been set for 9th April 2015 which meant there were nine months left for planning. Elaine had decided that the bridesmaids dresses were to be green so that became the colour theme for all the stationary items too.
Elaine had in mind an invitation which would have the invite wording on the front of an opening card with an information sheet attached to the inside. My Craft Studio and a patterned sheet from the Nitwit Collection Petal Fresh were used to create the card base. Attached to that were a strip of dark green pearlised paper which had been punched using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch, a strip of the patterned paper on top of that and wrapped around the layered strips and base card was green grosgrain ribbon with a matching bow added on top. Love bird punch outs from the green pearlised paper and crystal gems were added amongst the wording.
The inside of the card was lined with dark green pearlised paper and pale green parchment paper was used for printing the information sheet. The corners of the base card and insert sheets were rounded off using a corner punch. Once we had the design for the invitation sorted it became the basis for other pieces for the day.
Here are some images of the completed day and evening invitations.
