Wedding invitations

I was asked to make invitations for my brother's step daughter's up and coming wedding.

After chatting with her she knew exactly what she wanted so I didn't have to plan out samples for her to view, her design was very simple and classical.



Her colour scheme is a lovely sage green and white so I matched ribbon to this, I used plain white card and printed the text in silver using my silhouette machine. The bows were all made using the bow maker on my Ulimate Pro - I couldn't hand tie 50 perfect bows!!

There were 2 boxes one of the wedding invitations and one with evening invitations in:

 
These were made out of centura pearl card, decorated with the same ribbon and stamped with silver ink using stampin up stamps.
 
As usual I forgot to take pictures of them before sending to the bride but she has obliged and photographed them for me.
