I've been a member of Craftster for some time and reply to many posts but this is my first official one.  Just had to share our wedding invitations.  Compared to others on here they are pretty simple but I love them.  They came out just like I'd hoped.  Our wedding will be very small, around 55 people and just family so I only needed to make 24.  It will take place July 18, 2009 in a refurbished barn in our hometown so it's informal. The invitations reflect this.  It's going to be so much fun and will fit us perfectly.  Of course I'll post pictures after. 

Here is the front of the invite.  I purchased blank red cards and stamped and embossed the front.  That was a messy process and it was my first time embossing so I think they came out pretty good.  I then added the rhinestones and the lace.  Sorry about the glare.  It's much prettier in person.



Here is the inside with the enclosures.  It's pretty simple.  I just created a document for the text in a nice font and printed it out at home.  Then used decorative edge scissors to cut them out.  My hand sure was sore after that.  The ribbon holds the enclosures in place.  The top one is the directions and other things our guests need to know.  The picture is of the barn where we are going to get married.  On the back is information about dress, pictures (our guests will be our photographers) and our guest book which will be a scrapbook I'm making and we are asking everyone to bring a picture of themselves or one of us with them.  I'll post pictures later of the scrapbook.  The RSVP card is just really simple.  Since it's all family we are saving ourselves the extra stamp and just asking everyone to call, email or use our website to RSVP.  It was a lacy border around it and I just printed them off on cardstock 4 to a page and cut them apart.



Let me know what you think!  Thanks for checking them out.

Those look fantastic.  I love the lace and that it is functional as well as decorative.  Your guests will love that they are handmade.  Great job!
