“Share in Our Marriage Celebration of Love, Devotion and Family”

Isn’t that a wonderful sentiment for a wedding invitation!  One of my son’s best friends for many years is getting married, and I was asked to help design the wedding invitations.  The bride loved the tree from Stampin’ Up!’s “Season of Friendship”, and with a Fall wedding what could be better than that tree image with a smattering of autumn colored leaves.  Here is what we came up with.

Each leaf has been embossed with clear embossing powder.  What a special touch.  It added just the right amount of detail and style.

This was so fun!  Best wishes to the bride and groom for a long and happy life together!

Post Edited: As I have received several questions about this invitation and in particular concerning the pocketfold folder, I wanted to clarify that I only made the inside portion of the invitation (the stamped cards that slip into the folder).  The bride actually purchased the beautiful shimmery folders, and I do not know the dimensions.  Sorry for any confusion.

  10. Susan, what a unique and special wedding invitation and I love all the special touches you created! I know the bride loved it also!

  11. Oh Wow that is fantastic, I bet they were thrilled with this. Can I ask did you print off the wording on your computer? My daughter is getting married next year and she is thinking we should make her invites, I was wondering if there was a stamp company that you can get a stamp made or if you print off the info on the computer, this is all new to me, when I got married we had to go to a printer, I hadn’t heard of making your own but now that seems to be a big thing now.

  12. This is absolutely beautiful! Please don’t tell me you made 500 of them?!?! In your spare time?!?! You probably did!

    I posted today about your quilt…again, my apologies!!! And, the ripple on the back, I’ll happily fix it for you if you trust me to return your quilt in a reasonable amount of time!!!

    xoxo, Nan
