Wedding Invitations

Just recently finished some beautiful wedding invitations. This is for a friend's son and his fiance. With the bride to be, my friend Carolyn and myself....well also input from the groom to be, we brain stormed and came up with these very beautiful wedding invitations.

First we stamped with a leaves stamp on white cardstock. We then scanned it in and adjusted it's opacity in photoshop elements. We wanted the burgandy leaves in the background. One problem of changing the opacity only was it made the burgandy look pink. Had to also adjust the levels so that it would be a deeper color. Once we had the leaf background we added the text using Murray font.

Added a beautifuly ribbon down the side and attached it with dark copper brads.

The leaves were cut out of copper scrapbook paper on my craft robo and then attached to the invite on the ribbon with glue dots. Turned out perfect, don't you think.

To tie the RSVP cards to the invite we added the same burgandy leaves to the background.
