You’re Invited

It’s been a busy couple months helping to plan my brother and his fiancé’s wedding. I told you that I was designing the invitations (among other things) and promised to share with you the possibilities so you could download them and use them yourself if you want. Except for a few people who are holding their addresses hostage, the invitations have been mailed. Now that I won’t be spoiling the invitations it’s time I share them with you…my closest friends. These are the ones I came up with – names have been changed to protect the innocent…and my brother.

I created all of them using Stampin’ UP! My Digital Studio. I seriously love this program. So unbelievably easy to use! If you want to check out the program yourself you can find it here. You can even get a 30 day free trial right now. Similar to what I did with the Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day Subway Art printables I shared with you, you can find these on Picasa ready to download too. All you have to do is click on the image to be taken there. You can then add your own wording in Picasa or whatever editing program you like to use. If you’re an MDS user I’ve also included the images I used to make each one. Okay, enough of the logistics stuff.

Medallion (Baroque Motifs) in Basic Black
Pink Passion Drop Shadow (100% opacity, -11 Blur, x:0 y:0)
Century Gothic Font

This one ended up being used but not for the wedding invitation. Lindsee’s parents’ 25th anniversary is the same day as Brandon & Lindsee’s wedding so a little card went in with the wedding invitations asking guests to join a card shower for them.

The one that they ended up using is this one. We water colored the centers of the flowers pink and they looked beautiful!

Blossoms (First Edition) in Basic Black

There you have it. The two styles that ended up being used I took to FedEx Office and had them print them in black and white on their 100 pound smooth cardstock. Very inexpensive and they looked like a million bucks…if I do say so myself.

Four of the invitations I created and ready for you to download and use yourself. Just a little more logistical stuff though. These are for your use only, not to be sold, the stamp images are copyright of Stampin’ Up! That’s it. I’ll be back to share the reception and RSVP cards with you too. Maybe this weekend. I only created the blossom one for those because that’s the only one I had to do. But now that they are here for you to use, I’d feel bad if I didn’t give you everything.

If you end up using them for something, I’d love it if you let me know! In a couple more weeks I’ll be sharing the shower invitation with you too.
