Wedding Invites


I was asked to make some wedding invites for a member of my family. They were supposed to get married last year but it got postponed to next month so I had to revamp them a little bit. Under the I DO stamp I had a stamp made that had the couples name and wedding date on it. I didn't have time to get another one made so I found this I DO stamp. I cut 2 inch circles from the George cart  and 2 1/4 in scallops from the Mini Monograms cart.  Originally my ribbon was in a bow at the top of the insert card but because of the time I just added the ribbon with a staple.  So although they are not what I originally planned I think they turned out well.  

*** Woops I forgot to tell how I did the rest of the card!! I cut the brown at 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 and folded them in half and then on the front I folded the corner back to make the triangle opening and glued it down. I then wrapped ribbon around the card and did the cheater method under where the scallop was going to go. I assembled the scallop pieces and then used pop dots to attach to the card and then I added the little ribbon next to the scallop.
