Invitations

This weekend I will officially have a daughter-in-law when our son Greg marries his long time girl friend Michelle. These are the invitations I made for them. I first got a book called "Little Book of Letter Press" and asked Greg to pick out some invitations he liked. I played with different fonts, added Rhonna Farrer brushes and sent the couple samples through email to make their choice. The pretty embossed paper was purchased at Michaels as was the bling (gems). I cut vellum to add inside the envelope in their colors.
For the RSVP, I used more Rhonna brushes. I wasn't able to buy packs of papers in the same size, but it didn't matter. I tested samples on test paper cut to size and made more according to the paper I was able to find.
This is my 499th post. When I return from the wedding,at post 500, I will select a winner for a nice giveaway. Any comments left until then is a chance to win! I appreciate your visits!
