Wedding Invitations

My friend, Michelle and I are great at the assembly line process! We can crank out a bunch of anything once we figure out what to do. Well, it seemed only natural that we would do the invitations for her sisters wedding, right? The hardest part is always figuring out what to do. But in this case, Michelle had lots of time to design what she thought would work. Rose Red was the chosen color. The hardest part of the whole thing was trying to find Rose Red ribbon. We didn't. So we made our own. Remember this post about dyeing the ribbon and then baking it in the oven to heat set it? Well, that's what we did... we took SU! Very Vanilla Wide Grosgrain and dyed it with the Rose Red reinker.

We did the invitations, RSVP cards and we even made her a stack of thank you cards (very elegant ... with their Mr & Mrs names on it).

Here is what the invitation looks like close-up. I, of course, blocked out all the personal information... 'cause you know how I am about that!




Here is a close-up of the RSVP card...






Don't they look professionally done? We did 60 of them. It's hard to see some of it because it was a WINDY day in Central Texas when I photographed them!

Your invitations turned out beautiful! I have found that American Crafts makes a solid colored ribbon that matches Rose Red (just in case you ever need some again and can't make your own...wonderful job on that too!) :D
