Wedding Invitations!!

Ok so no date is set yet, and I don't have my ring yet, but I was too excited to not post the idea I had for wedding invitations.  :-)  I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!

(Oops put wrong date!  Should have said 2012.)

  •  White cardstock
    • Base 5 1/2 x 1
    • Extension of base 2 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • 8 1/2 x 11 Elegant Eggplant cardstock
    • Piece A cut at 1 1/2 x 5
    • Piece B cut at 3 1/2 x 5
    • Piece C cut at 2 x 5
    • Piece D cut at 5 x 5
    • Piece E cut at 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
  • 6 self-adhesive Basic Pearls (3 mm)
  • Xyron Sticker Maker
  • Crystal Fine Glitter
  • Dimensionals
  • 2 Way Glue Pen
  • Stampin' Up Vintage Vogue Clear Stamp Set
  • Stayz On Opaque White Ink
  • Computer Generated Sentiment (Font is Penhurst
Score the base piece at 2", 7 1/2", 11 1/2" and then adhere the base extension at the 11 1/2 score mark.  Fold all score marks.  (The 2" fold will form the flap at the top of the invitation.)  Adhere the sides of the base extension to the base to form the pocket that holds the RSVP card.

Cut the heart and shadow and LOVE from the Sweethearts Cart at 1.5" Run the white blackout heart through the sticker maker.  Adhere the flourish heart to it and then sprinkle with glitter.  (I tried to use a 2-way glue pen and it did not work as well.)  I adhered the self-adhesive pearls to the corners of the top flap and to the bottom.  (I adhered them to the heart also, but decided I didn't like them on the heart.)

Stamp all pieces of Elegant Eggplant with the flourish stamp from the Vintage Vogue stamp set with the white StayzOn.  Adhere Piece A to the front of the flap.  Adhere Piece B to the bottom flap (under the flap). Adhere the glittered heart to flap using dimensionals.  Adhere Love to the bottom flap.  Open the card.  Adhere Piece C to the RSVP pocket.  Adhere Piece D to the inside of the base card.  Adhere the computer generated sentiment to Piece D.

I stamped both sides of Piece E and then adhered the computer generated RSVP sentimentto the front.
