Since so many of you have asked to see the wedding invitation that I made for my sister's wedding, I managed to get a spare and photograph it. The invitation doesn't show up very well due to the subtle nature of the design. I cut cardstock to size and ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I then used a Brilliance gold ink pad over the surface of the embossing to highlight it. I printed the details of the invitation onto vellum and printed it out on my laser printer and then cut it just smaller than the cardstock. I placed gold heart brads in each corner to secure the vellum to the cardstock. I didn't have much time to make the invitations so I needed to do something that was quick, easy but looked great and I was really happy with the way these turned out. They look so elegant in real life and my sister tells me that so many people commented on how beautiful the invitations were, so mission accomplished. The two photos show firstly the invitation in its entirety and the second a closer up look.
