Wedding Invite Sample

Now I know this one is a bit over the top and is only really meant if you have 30 odd to do – but it`s based on a design I made up that I put in a wedding portfolio I made

When I left work to have Erin I started making cards more and having done the craft parties and shows with not to much joy – mainly as I used to send more on what I was making than selling – so I thought invites would be good as you would get 50`s to a hundred per order and wouldn`t have to go looking for to much work

So on finishing this portfolio I put similar invite to this one but in silver / grey card and you guessed it a bride can round and that`s the one she wanted – all 100 off them ( didn`t do the gold lined edge and the heat embossed heart – although it was a embossed bell which I bought a big shot for ) – as this sample was a one off I did finish this one more – whouldn`t have parted with 200 tassels !!!!

The only problem was it was all around the time I started my Sciatica and then my few months of being unable to walk – luckily Mum stepped in and after I cut them all out she worked on them scoring all the lines and leaving me half the work to do – then got finished all having the guests names printed inside and address labels too

The bride was pleased – although for all the hard work a little thank you note would have gone a long way !!

It was after this I decided as my samples for Joanna were more regular that it was enough and I didn`t take the wedding idea any further – but I do still love doing Wedding / occasions samples 

So sorry to go on but it was a turning point in my card making 

Here is the sample I made using the bridal stamps from Joanna – lots of silk mirri card & a couple of mulberry flowers – not forgetting the 2 tassels and paper roses too the card sits nicely in a 155mm square envelope which is handy to have ready made ones to make that job easier

One day i`ll do the measurements as a workshop
