Card Idea



A few months ago I designed a card that I thought would make a very pretty wedding invitation. Jonathan and I were courting at that point, but I stuck the idea back in the corner if my mind, just in case. When the time came that Jonathan and I were engaged, and I was making the wedding invitations, I knew exactly how I wanted to make them! You could use this design to make any occasion card.

The card base is 8 1/2 by 5 1/2. Make two folds at 2 1/8 inches from each side so that the card opens down the center. Decorate each side with embossing, then a punch. You could vary the design by using rubber stamps, stickers, or rub on's to change the theme.

You did an awesome job! I'm impressed:) I guess you got them printed first? (before folding/punching)

Sarah--We printed the invitations, two to a page. Then cut them apart and decorated. The girls helped me; we had fun making them together.

Thanks for the ideas. Ellen comes home TOMORROW and we will get underway planning her wedding. A guest list and invitations are on the top of the to do list. A friend in Guyana gave her a gown so that cuts out a lot of sewing I had planned to do.
