I have a feeling most of the crafts I post between now and July are going to be wedding related. I hope you don't get bored with red and white!
The latest wedding-y item is invitations to our engagement party next month -- we're having a little get-together at a pizza place in Michigan. Here's the invite:
Of course I made the envelopes -- that's what you see in the background. That paper reminds me of the interior of security envelopes. It was one of the few red and white papers I could find -- I guess that's not a popular color combo right now (of course).
Since we're having it at a pizza place, I cut up red and white plaid tablecloth-y fabric -- you know, like you find at Italian restaurants? Right? A few people have said "Oh! It's a picnic!" when they saw it, so I guess I failed there, but I like it anyway:
And the little "celebrate" label was made using a stamp + red ink + clear embossing powder. Then I cut them all out by hand and glued them to the front of the card.
Because, of course, I'm nuts.
Oh, well. I'm only planning on getting married once, so I figure why not go all out? Yeah. I'll probably burn out on this sometime next month and end up sending out post-it notes for our wedding invitations. Tune in to see!
