Going to the Chapel...

Last week I received a call from a young soldier. He was interested in having me make wedding invitations for him & his soon-to-be young bride. I met with them personally with a couple of examples of what I could do. Here are the samples I provided:

interior of gate fold
gate fold with belly band
debossed front with frame
postcard style invite.


Here is what they finally decided on:




What do you think?

Supplies used:
Papertrey Ink (unless otherwise noted)
Stamper's Select White cardstock
Fancy Flourishes stamped with glue pad and sprinkled with Prisma glitter
(stamped in Smokey Shadow on interior of card)
Mat Stack #1 die stamped with frame and sentiment from Round & Round anniversary set embossed with SU! silver embossing powder
Belly brand created with SU! silver cardstock
Vellum paper from SU! tied with Basic Gray taffeta ribbon from SU!

Such elegant cards...I love what they chose, I also loved the one where u stamped the leaves with Scarlet Jewel (if I am not wrong). Beautiful work Angy!
