Tie the Knot - Two Hearts Become One

My Bride-to-be was a sweet gal named Brittany.  She had seen one of the wedding cards I cased from "who knows where?"  and was just crazy about the design!  Little did I know that we would be using that to custom-design her Wedding Invitations for 160:)  Well, they were a lot more time consuming than I had imagined but boy, were they pretty.  Let me know what you think!  I just love comments from those of you that wish to leave them:)

 To make these, I used :

  • 121044 Basic Gray card stock
  • 101839 Vellum Paper
  • 121045 Basic Black card stock
  • 100730 Whisper White card stock
  • Glitter paper from Michael's
  • 101406 Jet Black Stazon Ink
  • Groovy Guava Ink (retired)
  • 119261 Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • 119262 Whisper White 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • 115466 Wedding Sweet Stamp Set 
  • 115963 Finial Press Embossing Folder
  • 113439 Big Shot Machine
  • 117332 Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit
  • 120907 Decorative Label Punch
  • 119849 Modern Label Punch
  • 119883 Full Heart Punch
  • 102930 The Tearing Edge

After making the cards themselves, I went on to dry embossing envelope flap as well as stamping the lower left corner with the lovely flourish from Wedding Sweet stamp set .  Then, I used the small bouquet of swirls on the corner on the envelop that I used for the RSVP card.  They came out so nice!  ...And most importantly, the bride was pleased:)

Thanks for visiting:)

The invitations are lovely! Great job!
Would love to see the envelopes also.
Honestly, though, I'm not at all surprised they are so beautiful. You always do an amazing job!
