Wedding stationery - photographed at last!

Some of you may remember that I mocked up some sample cards for my cousin's wedding (this post). Well, she chose one (thank goodness!) and I've now made wedding invites (for the ceremony in Mauritius), reception party invites (back in England a month after the wedding) and thank you cards (for all the pressies!). I made over 200 cards! (Patting myself on the head.)

So here they are...

As you can see, I alternated the colours so there's a bit of variety! The colours are to go with the bridesmaid dresses - they chose these hot colours as the ceremony is being held in Mauritius. They are quite plain, but I clear embossed flourishes across the text to keep it interesting. It also helped with the "dewy" look with the dew drops - thought it gave a more tropical feel rather than using buttons.
Now my time is freed up to do some new creating!!

Papers/cardstock: ultra-white pearlescent cardstock and papr (for inserts) from Paper Mill Direct (
here and here), Bazzill Tink Pink and Core'dinations orange cardstock
Mediums: detail clear embossing powder, Versacolour Opera Pink
Stamps: Hampton Art J Melvin Calligraphy alphabet set, Autumn Leaves Flourishes v2
Accents: Beresford Super Sheer Organza ribbon in shocking pink and orange, clear dew drops
Tools: Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, WRMK Corner Chomper, EK Success flower punches in small, medium and large

These are stunning! I love the warm colours on the crisp white background and the embossed swirls are ever so elegant. I'm really happy that I had a small wedding and my DH-to-be did half of our wedding stationary. I could have never done over 200 cards during our relatively short engagement period.

What a fabulous job you have done - they will be so pleased with them. The colours are beautifu; - i bet the bridesmaid dresses are gorgeous.
On a more selfish note i am glad you have got them finished so that i get my blogging buddy back! I have missed you.
I hope you are having a rest now - you deserve it. Can't wait to see your forthcoming creations.
I have some more good news to share - but can't just yet! ( i hate keeping secrets!)

Beautiful Mary! Very striking and I can tell your attention to detail is outstanding! Love the embossed flourish and how you did the punching! Our middle daughter had a red, orange and raspberry with a splash of purple wedding. It was outdoors with wild pretty against the green grass background. wow, 200 is a lot! Glad it was you and not me! lol
