I saw your invites before and I saved them on my computer, but they saved weird so I couldn't see them. I was sad cuz I couldn't remember exactly what the looked like, but I knew they had flowers on them and wanted to use it as inspiration so I searched and searched and searched and found it again!
I have a question though - on your RSVP cards, did you do the words or the flower first? I really like how the flower shows through a little bit on the letters. Have any tips on how you did them?

thekster, I stamped the flowers first, you are correct.  They were stamped with colorbox ink in white (I'm sure it had a more frilly, interesting name...  but it was plain white).  Then I went and stamped the RSVP in colorbox ink in brown (again I think it might have been called mocha or something....  it wasn't a DARK brown).

I hadn't intended for the flowers to show through the letters, but I was really pleased with the effect.  Just to warn you though, that white ink takes awhile to dry.  It's pretty thick ink compared to the brown, and sometimes it was still tacky after 30 mins so take that in mind when you're setting up a stamping station.  I had to do about 10 cards at a time because my tiny desk didn't have enough room to lay out more than that.  Get some help too, because after doing all 50 of them, my hands and arms REALLY hurt.  I guess I stamp too hard or something.  Smiley

Good news, we got TONS of compliments at the wedding on all the DIY stuff.  I got one photo of my centerpieces in action, but it is film so I have to wait to scan it.  Everyone loved the invites, the newsletters, the programs, and all the little touches.  Made all that hard work worthwhile.

Oh, and I added more photos to the front of this post.  Smiley

Colorbox, hmm? That name sounds really familiar. That's just the brand of ink right? I feel like I've seen that stuff at Hobby Lobby recently... I'll have to go grab me some.
Also, I'll have to reconsider my paper color cuz I just planned on plain ol' boring white.
You did such a good job; I just have to gush! Smiley

I love your invites and rsvp cards! Does anyone know what font the RSVP part is done in? I know someone said Angelina font but that's not it. :/ I guess I will go search. <3

In all my hundreds of hours looking for fonts I've never seen the RSVP bit as a font. I know Hablingfrau used a stamp for it. Now, just because I haven't seen it doesn't mean it doesn't exist, but be prepared that it might not. It's the rest of the text that is in Angelina.
