Finished at last!

After weeks of stamping, punching, cutting, printing, folding, scoring, taping and gluing, all 115 wedding invitations are finished! Although I was very excited and honored that my daughter wanted me to design and make these for her wedding and enjoyed every minute of the design and assembly, I am also sighing with relief that this task is now behind me! I am going to Albuquerque this weekend for her first shower and will hand-deliver this special package to her.

Here's a photo of all of them stacked neatly in piles ready to be boxed up somehow so I can get them on the plane with me.

And here's a closer photo of one to show the beautiful metallic Prism paper we used for the folders. I also used the Just Rite Stamper monogram for the centers of the scallops. Her colors are gunmetal, deep pink (almost fuschia) and dark orange.
I used white Prism textured cardstock for the invitations. They wanted them very plain - no ribbons, hearts etc. - but I thought they were a bit too plain. After receiving "permission," I cuttlebugged the top and bottom with the Swiss dots embossing folder.

Since I had plenty of offcuts of the metallic paper, I will probably make wedding programs too.
