Sample Invitation...

Last weekend I was at a workshop and met a new girl, C. She is in a wedding next July and fell in love with the invitation on page 48 of the catalog, and knew the Bride to Be would love it as well. After many texts flying back and forth (B2B is in Ontario), and a few emails, I agreed to make a sample to show the invitation using the wedding colors - colors very close to Handsome Hunter & Sage Shadow (my new favorite SU color, tyvm). Keeping in mind I don't have the right ribbon (yet), or the stamp set (yet), and had to use textured cardstock for the HH because I didn't have any un-textured 12x12 CS,  I made a mock up to give her an idea of what the finished product may look like.

closed up (one scallop edge from the Perfect Setting BS die holds the RSVP pouch closed). I didn't know the Bride & Groom's names, so i used an alphabet from the clearance bin to write "boy girl" and used the Sweet Season stamp for the ampersand (&).

open - pouch on the bottom holds a standard size card front for RSVP & standard envelope

I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs on the RSVP again (stamp pad will be a MUST for this) and used my little alphabet for the RSVP placement.

Final size of invitation - folded up - 7 x 6; open - 12x 6. If indeed this is what the B&G want to go with, I am going to try and play around so that they fit in a standard 5x7ish envelope. or a large square one. we'll see what they think.

ALSO: Please excuse the crappy white balance on my camera. Methinks I'll be hittin the Boxing Day sales for a new camera. mmm. new camera. 

Thoughts (on invitation or camera :P) ???
