Pr Vikiki's request, Option F




Thank you for the input Matuta!  Smiley I agree, the monogram isn't my favorite font, I just wanted to slap something on there to give myself an idea of how it might work. I LOVE dafont.com though, thats where I got the font I'm using on the other pages (it's called Tagettes and Tagettes plus).

The sheer ribbon is an interesting idea. I shall have to play with it a bit. I actually did play with the idea of powder embossing but after making 60 of these suckers, I thought it would get too tedious. I'd rather get an embossing stamp with our initials (I saw a lot of nice ones when i went to Italy in feb... now kicking myself for not getting one).

Same here, a and f... Although looking at it again, F is absolutely the best.
I wonder if the initials might be a bit busy too though. I'm not sure what letters they are - P and S? And I know this is just a sample, but are they off center?
I think the uhmmm titles(? can't think of a better word) that peek through look fine and not too busy, but the names look like they'd be hard to read.
I like the bow tied like that, but maybe it would be a little neater if the ribbon was cut an an angle on both ends.
Oh btw, I bought a perforator recently for 2-3 bucks at Hobby Lobby. If you want to save your guests the trouble of having to find scissors and then cut out the post card, it would work great. The only drawback I've seen is that duh, more work for you to have to do, and the ones I've done on cardstock have had really light cuts so it's kinda hard to tell it's perforated. Anyways.
These invitations look fantastic. The embossing in the pictures reminds me of a lace border Smiley

If I use F (which looks like the front runner so far) then I wouldnt be using the initials (P and L btw  Wink ) I just put the initials on there so it wouldn't look so blank.

I didnt know perforators were so cheap! Thanks for the info. I don't mind that bit of extra work, its a good idea Smiley

These are looking really great - good job!!

For what it's worth - I think I like B best as it's more simple.
I think it looks beautiful just as is and it doesn't really need anything else adding to it.

The stamp/punch thingy looks fantastic and the perforated RSVP is a brilliant idea.
If I'd have seen this before making my invites, I definitely might have tried to do something like that too.

Hurrah for you!!

My favorite is option A, but I would like to see what is would look like with a sheer ribbon, maybe something wider that would scrunch together a bit. I do also like F though which seems to be getting lots of votes. I like to see it with the front black and the monogram in ivory. I'm sure there's a way to do that, but not sure if it would be hard to do in bigger quantities.

I'm voting for F again, 5 times. Then it will be in the running by a bunch. Smiley
Oh and I may be wrong on the price, but I'm pretty sure it was 2 or 3. I did use a 40 percent off coupon but I think I used it on something else.

hmmm.... are there any stamp inks that would work well on black paper? The only thing I can think of is sponge painting or those metallic markers/gel pens and I dont know how I would get them to look nice.

Or maybe even sticking a B&W photo on there like matuta suggested using on the ivory?

I like option F the best as well, I do find it looks more complete. However, I also think the monograms on the front would look lovely, perhaps stamping out your initials in the front, and backing it with the ivory paper, so they stand out from the black. You could get it laser cut, or a punch stamp with your initals. 

But then I would omit the embossed stamp from the front peice, or it might look too busy. My same thoughts about the ribbon as well. Maybe the ends need to be cut at an angle (then you have to worry about unravelling)
