Good Morning! Hope all is well with you today. Today is a long posting. Get your coffee ready.By the time I have shared this blog posting my Son will have married the love of his life. I was delighted when they asked me to make their Wedding invitations. I made different samples for my son and daughter-in-law to choose from.This is the design she choose because lets face it men really don't care about these kind of things...LOL I used handmade paper from Michael's that I purchased mostly from the three different Michael's in Arizona (AZ) while visiting my sister, luckily at 30% off. I also purchased the shimmer paper for the inside of the invitations in AZ at a paper warehouse. It's just amazing how many paper craft stores AZ has. The cost is soooooo much cheaper too. I ran out of the shimmer paper and had to buy some here in Albuquerque. I was shocked for the same cost of the 100 sheets I purchased in AZ I only got 25 sheets here in Albuquerque. My daughter-in-law loved them as well as my son did. That makes me happy!
|The outside of the invitations is made with the|
handmade paper from Michael's. The bow is made
using the SU bow builder punch. My neighbor Heather
helped me attach all the bows! Thanks Heather!!
