Wedding Bells!

Happy Monday everyone!
Today I'm showing you a wedding invitation idea, RSVP and place setting/favour box that I've put together for an up-coming class I'll be teaching at Heather's. What I love about this invitation is the bottom flap where I made a little envelope to stash the RSVP card in! (see photo below). I used classic colours of cream and gold although of course it can be very easily adapted to the wedding colours of choice. I used this beautiful tulip border stamp from The Stamp Barn which I embossed with gold ep. I used the cuttlebug D'Vine swirls embossing folder on the top and bottom panels with a strip of gold ribbon to 'hide' the join seam at the top! The gold flower is a Spellbinder's die cut with a cream Prima flower glued on top. I also used a small piece of cream organza ribbon to tie in with the gold. The inside is plain gold vellum which can be easily run through the computer to generate the invitation details.

The RSVP card is done very simply on a piece of matching cream cardstock with the tulip border stamped either side. A piece of gold vellum (which would be computer printed with the rsvp 'details') is adhered down with double sided tape. The 'RSVP' is again a stamp from The Stamp Barn, as is the 'Invitation' on the front. The 'envelope' is made from two triangles cut and adhered down each side. And voila! - there is, in my opinion anyways, quite a classy looking wedding invitation!
I posted this triangle favour box last week some time and I thought it would work perfectly for this wedding set. Again, I made it in matching cream and gold colours and used the MS doiley punch to add detail to each end. Why I thought this would work particularly well for a wedding is that on each of the 3 sides I have added the nesties die cuts. You can write or computer print your guest's name on one side, the wedding couple's names on another, and a 'thank you for coming' on the other, and still include a nice favour inside - all in one project! Isn't that awesome!!
I hope you enjoyed this post - please leave a comment if you do as I love having feedback on what I do! I thoroughly enjoyed doing this project and can't wait to teach it! That favour box has to be a new favourite of mine - it's just so versatile - I love it!
I have to tell you - I had a phone call from my mother this afternoon - she lives on the little island of Jersey in the English Channel. She was so excited to tell me that it was snowing - it has been many years since Jersey last saw snow! It was hard to share in the enthusiasm when we get x-number feet of the white stuff here every year but I know my nieces and nephew will be experiencing it pretty much for the first time! I hope it sticks around for at least a couple of days for them to enjoy it!
OK, well that's all for now. Thanks for popping by today - hope to see you back again soon!
