Nancy Wanser stopped by and gave me the wedding invitation and table settings she made fro her daughter's wedding last month. Everything was colored coordinated and it all came out beautiful. Both Julie and Nancy were very happy and they got lots of well deserved compliments!
This first picture is of the invitation, favor box, table number card and a place setting card.
Nancy and Julie came to the shop and looked through swatches of paper to come up with the color combination. She knew she wanted browns and coppers for her fall wedding.
And thankfully I was able to get them this pretty chocolate metallic finish cardstock as well as the copper metallic, both with a gorgeous shimmer to it.
Nancy came up with the wording and the font and brought it to her printer with all of the cardstock. He did the printing, as she did not want to sit and print all of them.
If you need a lot printed, this is a great way to go.........you can pick your paper and all, and have a printer just do the printing for a nominal fee. He also printed the envelopes and the RSVP envelopes........it was a great savings of time!
Now, when Nancy got the work back from the printer, she just stamped the corners with a pretty Hero Arts heart flourish, mounted it on the copper and added the Swarovski crystals.
Next she had to tape the pocket on the holder and then placed everything inside, and added a pretty punched heart to the closing tab. (These wedding invitation holders come cut and scored!!! Another beautiful and professional addition to the set)
Here is a close up of the pyramid favor box, again in the chocolate metallic cardstock, simply heat embossed in gold and tied with a pretty gold cord.
Now, when Ceci cuts these boxes for you, you have a lot of scraps............and you USE them.
Nancy, punched out the table numbers in two sizes - large for the table card and then the small one for the place setting card.
