Wedding Invitation, Sample 1

Friends of ours are getting married in August of this year and they've asked me to do their invitations. I'm really excited and honored to be asked. I thought I would do a couple samples for them to choose from and then we can go from there. I'm keeping mailing in mind as thing I've learned with cards, the thicker they are, the more expensive and since there's about 70 of these going out, I'm trying to keep that in mind. So, for sample #1, I started with a 6x12" piece of CS and scored it at 1.5, 5.5 and 9" then I cut my CS for the invite to 3.5x5.5 and the pocket CS (cream) is 3x5.5. The pocket will hold all the extra information. The bow is cut from "Sweetheart" cricut cart at 1 1/4 and the corner scroll is cut at 2 1/4. I did their wedding invite on velum. Stay tuned for next samples to follow!

(for some reason, the whole invite wouldn't show right side up, so I've just added the close up of the front)
