Busy, Busy, Busy!

I know I haven’t posted quite as regularly recently,but I can guarantee you you that I have been busy working away!  Today I’d like to share one of the bigger projects that I have been occupied with!  A month or so ago, a friend asked me to help with her wedding invitations.  I was her Plan B as she had hoped to make them herself, but things changed and I’m glad I got the chance to help out!

The bride-to-be needed to include lots of information for her guests, so it soon became clear that a chequebook style invitation would be the best layout.  The colour scheme for the wedding is fuchsia and silver; I love the bright, summery combination!  Now I hope you’ll understand when I say that I can’t share the inside of the booklets, but I can let you have a peek at the front cover….

The front and back of the invitation are cut by the Silhouette from a fairly heavyweight linen marked card.  The border on the cover (by Jamie Koay via Silhouette Online store) was also cut on the Silhouette.  Then, I popped a layer of fuchsia cardstock behind the cover to show through the border, without overpowering it.  The words were cut from Bazzill Basics Mercury cardstock and glued by hand.  A fuchsia satin blow was the final touch!  Inside, the pages are printed on 300gsm smooth white card, with the edges of each section staggered.
