My sisters and I are giving our Father an 80th birthday celebration. So I figured to save some money we would rather pay to the caterer, it was decided I would print the invitations, et all.

Never having printed in large quantity like this, I was quite pleased with how smooth it went. The cards and envelopes are from Micheal's, and I used OpenOffice for format and printing everything.

Here are the invites, envelopes, reply cards, lunch cards and hospitality cards. The card stack is a cream color and everything is printed in steel gray, except for the little heart in the border of the invitation. It is of course in red.

This was much easier than I expected, and would do it again. Now to stuff and mail them all out.  Smiley
