Vintage Glam Wedding Invitation


 So today I wanted to share the wedding invitations from my daughter Rachel and Gabe's wedding. 

 
 The base is brushed silver cardstock - and then I used a shimmery vanilla for the wording.  The picture really doesn't show how pretty these really are!  Many told us these were the most beautiful invitations they had ever received - well, let me just say it was a labor of love!  What a wonderful and happy time.

I had the wording pieces printed and called upon my two best friends - Rene' and Sandra to help me assemble these!  We got them done in one day!  

We used four inch wide lace - attached with sticky strip - and added a strip of  Stampin' Up! Vanilla Satin Ribbon.  The "bling" was from last year's Holiday catalog - we have a similar product in this year's catalog that would work as well (in fact I used them on the favors).  And as a precaution - I added an extra piece of the Vanilla shimmer cardstock over the front of the invitation for mailing, so that they would arrive in perfect shape!  I actually mailed a sample to myself to make sure it would arrive as I hoped it would - and it did.  
 
Here's a peek at the inside of the invitation - 




 The bottom half of the inside was a pocket that held info on the reception, accomodations for out of town guests, and the response card - and we used more of the four inch lace! 


 And here are a few more photos! 

These two stole the show! 


 And here is a family photo that I love!  We are so blessed! 

 
 Please come back tomorrow for a few more pictures! 

Thanks for your visit today!
